McPherson, McKinley, Whyte Score, Saints Down Crusaders 3-1 To Take 2-0 Series Lead

In last night’s game, the Spruce Grove Saints took a 2-0 series lead as they defeated the Sherwood Park Crusaders by a final score of 3-1! 

Ewan McPherson (Edmonton, AB) started off the scoring to give the Saints an early 1-0 lead. Ten minutes after McPherson’s goal, Carson Whyte (Regina, SK) put one home to put the Saints up by two. 

The second period contained some power play opportunities; however, neither team capitalized, and the game remained 2-0 for the Saints. 

Early into the final frame, Evan Arnold scored for the Crusaders to cut the Saints’ lead in half. Then, just over halfway through the period, Breck McKinley (St.Albert, AB) got the team’s third (and final) goal! 

The Saints went on to defeat the Crusaders in a 3-1 conclusion!
