It was a wild home-opener for the Big Valley Oil Kings on Sunday, Nov. 15, as they hosted the Whitecourt Wild.

It was the first game of the season on home ice for the team, which recently switched to the North Central Hockey League after the folding of the Battle River Hockey League, and the first time the team had a chance to play against the Wild.

Big Valley was the first to get a goal on the board when Tyson Glazier scored about five minutes into the first. He was followed five minutes later by a goal by Dustin Moore, and another by Jeff Clazie about four minutes after.

A goal by the Wild brought the first to an end with a score of 3-1 for the Oil Kings.

The Wild were first to score in the second, but that goal only energized the Oil Kings, who saw Moore score his second goal of the game. A penalty shot by Devon Hobbs increased the Oil Kings’ lead, and a final goal, with less than three minutes left in the second, by Brendan Lamb, brought the game to 6-2 Oil Kings.

Despite multiple attempts by both teams in the third, neither team scored.
