Saints Push Late, But Fall 4-3 To Bonnyville In A Shootout

In a playoff-style game, the Spruce Grove Saints fell to the Bonnyville Pontiacs in a shootout by a score of 4-3. 

Early into the first period, Hunter Brown (Prince George, BC) scored on the powerplay to put the Saints up by one. 

Starting the second period with the Saints leading 1-0, Sam Schofield scored on the powerplay to tie the game at one-a-piece. 

The third period was nothing short of intense. Seven minutes into the period, Brandon Spaulding  (Agawam, MA) extended his point streak to four games, as he put the Saints up by one. A few minutes after Spaulding’s goal, Liam Cavan scored to tie the game again, now at 2-2.

Then, with just over a minute left in the game, Sam Schofield scored his second to put the Pontiacs up by one. And then, when all hope was thought lost, Liam Watkins (Okotoks, AB) tied the game with forty seconds left to send it to overtime!

With an uneventful OT, the game ended with the Pontiacs winning it in shootout by a score of 4-3.
