In a game where Ethan Leyer (St.Albert, AB) and Carson Whyte (Regina, SK) both got a pair of goals, the Saints defeated the Bobcats in a 9-3 conclusion!
The fast-paced first period contained one goal from each team. Just under halfway through, Morgan Brady (Woking, AB) netted one home to give the Saints a one-goal lead. Soon after Brady’s goal, Brock Krulicki scored a short-handed goal to tie the game at one.
The second period was absolute insanity! Early into the period, Liam Watkins (Okotoks, AB) scored on the powerplay to give the Saints a 2-1 lead. Three minutes later, Carter Oakenfold (Calgary, AB) got the rebound to put the Saints up by two. Soon after, Whyte sniped home his first of the night and first as a Saint, giving Spruce Grove a 4-1 advantage. Leyer wanted in on the action, so he scored a minute later to put the Saints up by four. Near the end of the period, Matthew Swanson scored to give the Bobcats life and put the score at 5-2
The madness continued in the third period with four more Saints goals! At the start of the period, Whyte got his second of the night to put the Saints up 6-2! One minute later, Matthew Swanson netted one home to bring the Bobcats within three. Soon after, Hunter Brown (Fort St.John, BC) scored mid-fall to give the Saints back their four-goal lead. Then, halfway through the final period, Leyer sent home his second of the night to put the Saints up 8-3! With four minutes left in the game, Simon Lovsin (Stony Plain, AB) put the nail in the coffin and sent the Bobcats packing.
The Spruce Grove Saints went on to dominate the Lloydminster Bobcats in a 9-3 finale!
