Benincasa Nets 3 Points As Saints Defeat Grizzlys 4-2

The Spruce Grove Saints accomplished a come-from-behind win as they defeated the Olds Grizzlys by a final score of 4-2! 

In an uneventful first period, there were many power play opportunities, but neither team could capitalize. 

The second period was a whirlwind of power plays and scoring opportunities. Just past the halfway mark, Tristan Baumung scored for the Grizzlys to put them on the board first. Soon after, Baumung scored his second of the night to give Olds a two-goal lead. A minute after Baumungs second, Liam Watkins (Okotoks, AB) put one home to cut the lead in half. 

Eighteen seconds into the final frame, Luigi Benincasa (Edmonton, AB) sniped one on net to tie the game at two! Then, just under halfway through the period, Alexander Babich (Chicago, IL) tipped one home to take the lead for the Saints! Soon after Babich’s goal, Benincasa put on a clinic to score his second of the night and give the Saints a 4-2 Lead! 

The Spruce Grove Saints went on to complete the comeback and defeat the Olds Grizzlys in a 4-2 conclusion!
