On this episode of Crusaders Pregame, hosts Zach Marks and Dawson Petryshen look back on the first weekend at home for Sherwood Park, and preview how the Cru will finish up their three game home stand against the Spruce Grove Saints.
Opening the scoring at the Randy Rosen Rink on Saturday was Ashton McNelly, to the sounds of 500+ fans crowding the stands. Caelum Dick pots his first of two on the game, the Wolverines came back for two in the second period but Dick snipes his second goal home for the overtime winner.
Sunday against Bonnyville was a slightly different contest, Josh Rule gets the Crusaders on the board but just 24 seconds pass and Kash Rasumussen gets the first of four unanswered goals for the Pontiacs. Starter Gus Bylin made 31 saves in the contest.
Dawson also had a chance to chat with defenceman Cade Christenson ahead of the Saints matchup, talking the previous weekend and how he’s developed his game so far.
Tune in to HockeyTV for all of the action tonight, where Brenden Escott and Zach Marks will have the call.
