Cru close out season with win

Sherwood Park, AB: The Sherwood Park Crusaders closed out the 2019/20 season with a win against the Whitecourt Wolverines, with all the goals coming in the third period.

The Cru broke the deadlock after seven minutes of the third period. Vincent Scott scored thanks to assists from local products Bryce Bader and Ty Ettinger. That goal was the No. 46?s second of the season and of his AJHL career.

One minute later, Sherwood Park doubled the lead through its top line. Carter Savoie (University of Denver) fired home, and Arjun Atwal and Will Zapernick (University of Alabama – Huntsville) provided the assists. That goal marked Savoie?s 99th point of the season.

Bjorn Robinson denied Carter Gylander (Colgate University) a shutout, scoring with 16 seconds remaining in the third to claw back a consolation for the Wolverines.

The win means that the Crusaders finish the season as AJHL Viterra North Division champions and have a 49-9-0 record. The team heads into the playoffs with a bye and will be back on the ice March 13th.
