Sherwood Park Crusaders Take Stranglehold on Series

That’s three! The Sherwood Park Crusaders shocked the cross-town rival Spruce Grove Saints yet again in their AJHL North Division semifinal series, winning 5-4 in double overtime Friday night to take a 3-2 series lead. All three of the Crusaders’ wins have come at Spruce Grove’s Grant Fuhr Arena.

And now, the Crusaders — who finished fourth in the North Division, the Saints in first — are one win away from advancing to the division final for the first time since 2003.

Forward Nicholas Jones scored unassisted at 11:58 of the second overtime period, his second of the night, on Spruce Grove Saints goalie Tanner McCorriston to lift the Crusaders to the win.
