(Calgary, AB) – In a thrilling AJHL match, Ryan De Kok secured his inaugural career shutout, propelling the Spruce Grove Saints to a 2-0 victory over the Olds Grizzlys.
During the first period, the Saints had four power play opportunities, but they couldn’t capitalize on them. Consequently, the game remained scoreless after the initial twenty minutes.
All the action unfolded in the middle frame, the only period where goals were scored. Tanner Dawkins, hailing from Cloverdale, BC, found the back of the net, breaking the deadlock and giving the Saints a 1-0 advantage. Just two minutes later, Ryder Matter from Beaumont, AB, scored a remarkable goal assisted by Ryan Johnstone from Pickering, ON, extending the Saints’ lead to two goals.
De Kok continued to be an impenetrable force in the third period, ultimately guiding the Saints to a resounding 2-0 triumph over the Grizzlys!
