Rangers Sneak Past St. Paul

The Vegreville Rangers continue to impress in the early going of the Northeastern Alberta Junior Hockey League Season ...

Noah Budinski scored a pair of goals for Vegreville in the first period while Steward Foster scored the go-ahead goal with thirteen-minutes left in the third as the Rangers downed the Canadiens 6-5 in St. Paul last night.

Scott Pauk made 57 saves in the win for the Rangers.

Vegreville hopes to keep to momentum going tonight when the welcome the Wainwright Bisons to town.

It won’t be an easy contest for the Rangers - the Bisons are the defending NEAJHL and Western Canadian Champs and have won the only game they’ve played this season, a 7-3 dismantling of St. Paul last weekend.

Game time at the Vegreville Rec. Center Arena is 8:00pm and Country 106.5 will broadcast tonight's contest starting with a pregame show at 7:55pm.
