The Rangers pushed the Northeastern Alberta Junior Hockey League’s 2nd place team to the limit at the Vegreville Rec Center Arena on Friday night but couldn’t finish the job – falling 4-3 to the Frog Lake T-Birds ...
Austin Halliday scored a goal and added an assist for Vegreville but a third period shorthanded goal by Ryder Prue would stand up as the winner for Frog Lake.
Rangers Head Coach Brian Brown says despite the loss his team can build on the momentum generated moving forward.
The Rangers had Smoky Lake’s Scott Pauk, a Midget Affiliate, between the pipes and Brown credits the youngster for his 41 save performance in the loss.
The Rangers drop to 2-4-and-1 on the year and are right back to work Saturday when they head to Vermilion for a Tilt with the Tigers.
