Wild Hold Off Saints March for 4-3 Win

WENATCHEE, WA – The Wenatchee Wild had to hang on for dear life last night to win Game 3 of the Doyle Cup against Spruce Grove. Wenatchee held a 4-1 lead late, but the Saints came storming back with two goals in a flurry. But the Wild came out on top 4-to-3. To the highlights we go…unfortunately, they didn’t have the hook up with Arch Ecker on the Wenatchee Wild Hockey Network, so we get the Saint’s play-by-play with Brandon Ewanchyshyn, video courtesy of HockeyTV…

Wenatchee’s up 3-zero in the best-of-seven series and can clinch the Doyle Cup with a win tonight. They’ll drop the puck at 6 o’clock.
