BCHL Finals Recap – Monday, April 16

Austin Park made 38 saves and Zak Galambos scored the game-winning goal 12:16 into double overtime as the Wenatchee Wild beat the Prince George Spruce Kings 4-3 and now lead the Fred Page Cup Final 3-0.

The two teams traded goals in the first period as AJ Vanderbeck and Matt Dorsey scored for the Wild, while Ethan de Jong and Blake Hayward answered for the Spruce Kings and the game was tied 2-2 after one. Hayward put Prince George ahead with another goal in the second, his fourth in the last two games, but Jacob Modry tied the game midway through the third period to force overtime.

Vanderbeck added two assists to his first-period goal and now has seven points in his last two games, and eight in total in the Fred Page Cup Final. He was also named the game’s first star.

Prince George goalie Evan DeBrouwer stopped 37 of the 41 shots he faced in a losing effort.

Wenatchee now has a commanding 3-0 series lead and will have a chance to hoist the Fred Page Cup tomorrow night in Game 4 in Prince George.
