Saints Fall 3-2 To Canmore Eagles

Hunter Bill (Green Bay, WI) and Will Brophy (Worcester, MA) both scored their first AJHL goals; however, the Spruce Grove Saints fell to the Canmore Eagles by a final score of 3-2. 

Halfway through the first frame, Casey Black opened the scoring on a powerplay to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead. Then, with less than a minute left in the period, Zach Coutu scored to put Canmore up by two. 

Early into the middle period, Bill got one on the powerplay to bring the Saints within one! Spruce Grove dominated the second frame most of the time; however, they could not capitalize on any more opportunities. With four seconds left in the period, Brody Tallman scored to regain a two-goal lead for the Eagles. 

Just over halfway through the final frame, Brophy scored his first AJHL goal to again bring the Saints within one. The Eagles would then go on to defeat the Saints in a 3-2 conclusion.
