On this episode of Crusaders Pregame, hosts Zach Marks and Dawson Petryshen close out the Crusaders month of January with the loss to Grande Prairie and look ahead to the home and home set against the Drayton Valley Thunder.
Looking for a rebound after a 6-1 loss to Calgary the week prior, the Cru came in hot on Saturday. Cale Ashcroft opened the scoring halfway through the first period, as well as Mitchell Joss collecting his 40th point of the season with an assist. Zach Brooks tied the game with seven minutes left in the second, but Ashcroft gave the green the lead with 47 seconds remaining. Unfortunately, the offense dried up there as a four goal third from the Storm game Grande Prairie a 5-2 decision.
Dawson had a chance to speak with Crusaders captain Bruce MacGregor ahead of the back to back, on what the team needs to do to continue their climb and how they continue to stay in games.
