EDMONTON – With the Griffins up 2-0 in the best-of-five ACAC final series, they looked to close it out in Game 3 at NAIT Arena last Thursday night.

Morgan Casson was a huge reason why they did, as the Griffins earned a sweep of the Ooks with a 3-2 overtime victory for their third-straight ACAC Championship.

Casson opened the scoring with a first-period wraparound before dramatically netting the golden goal in OT, ripping a shot from the slot under the bar to kick off a wild MacEwan celebration.

It’s the second time in the past three years that Casson has scored the series-clinching goal, also tallying the OT winner in the decisive game over the SAIT Trojans that sealed MacEwan’s first championship in their run (2017).
