The South East Athletic Club bantam AAA Tigers had a five-game unbeaten streak snapped Sunday.
At Hockey Hounds Arena, the Calgary Bisons laid an 8-3 beating on the Tigers, who had earned a 5-5 tie in Okotoks the day before.
A wild second period saw the Bisons turn a 2-1 deficit into a 6-2 lead. Connor Gourley had two of those goals, only one of which came on a power play.
Shane Smith had a goal 16 seconds in for the home side, while Roman Cherniak and Denyn Smith had the others. Kaiden Morin was pulled after making 24 saves through two periods.
SEAC had a big second period Saturday in Okotoks, going up 5-2 until two late goals before the last intermission gave the host Oilers some hope. They parlayed that into a single point with the lone goal of the third.
Okotoks outshot South East 48-30, as Bodee Weiss came up big for the Tigers in net. Cherniak, Dawson Seitz and Kieran Christianson each had a goal and an assist while the other goals were scored by Tyler Broesky and Matthew MacPherson.
