Benincasa Hero In Overtime As Saints Slay Dragons 3-2

In a game where Jameson Kaine (Vancouver, BC) allowed only two goals on thirty-one shots, the Spruce Grove Saints defeated the Drumheller Dragons by a score of 3-2! 

Just over halfway through the first period, Liam Watkins (Okotoks, AB) scored his seventh of the season to put the Saints up by one. Then, with forty-three seconds left in the period, Connor Poffenroth scored for the Dragons to tie the game at one-a-piece after the first period.

In the second period, penalties were dished out to both teams, which resulted in no goals. However, late in the period, Ethan Kronewitt (Stony Plain, AB) sniped one home to again put the Saints up by one! 

Nine minutes into the third period, Adam Raesler scored on the powerplay to tie the game at 2-2 and push it to overtime.

The game remained tied at two until Luigi Benincasa (Edmonton, AB) scored on a breakaway with eight seconds remaining to win the game by a final score of 3-2!

The Saints will now head out on a four game road trip starting this weekend with back to back games against Grande Prairie.
