The Okotoks Oilers added to their already exceptional record in the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) last night at home with a win over the Grande Prairie Storm.

They got off to a sluggish start in the first period at the Pason Centennial Centre and were down a goal heading into the second.

Early in the frame, they tied the game with a goal from Quinn Olsen, followed by two more from Kaleb Ergang and Austin Wong.

The Storm came back strong with a late period goal to bring them back within one, however, they failed to make any real headway in the third.

Tanner Laderoute added a goal in the final frame to extend the Oilers' lead to two while the Storm mounted a late game offensive to bring the tally back to within one.

In the end, the Oilers hung on for a 4-3 victory.

The Foothills favourites are in first place in the AJHL with 88 points, seven points ahead of the second-seeded Spruce Grove Saints.

They currently hold an outstanding record of 39-9-3 and head into the final stretch of the season on a 15-game win streak.

With only six games remaining, the Oilers take on the Dragons in Drumheller Tuesday at 7 p.m.
