SHERWOOD PARK, AB – The Sherwood Park Crusaders had the number seven ranked team in the Canadian Junior Hockey League on the ropes until 4:40 remained in the third Period, then the Fort McMurray Oil Barons were able to turn on another gear and pull away with a 5-3 win. The comeback win by the MOB consisted of five unanswered goals including four in the third period, two of them from Oil Barons leading scorer Will Conley.
