The opening to the 2013-14 season did not go as planned for the Sherwood Park Crusaders on Friday night. A span of 6 goals from 14:55 of the 2nd period to 7:31 of the 3rd period by the Whitecourt Wolverines lifted them to a 8-3 victory on opening night of the AJHL's 50th season.
Cody Bardock and Sean MacTavish netting 2, were the goal scorers for the Cru.
Sherwood Park was 1 for 9 on the Man Adavantage while registering a total of 33 shots. Whitecourt had 27 and was 1 for 3 on the Power Play.
The Crusaders will look to avenge Friday night's loss as they open up their home portion of the schedule Saturday night at 7pm at the Sherwood Park Arena.
