An unexpected delay at the Wally Fedun Arena seemed to be the undoing for the Vegreville Rangers in the North Eastern Alberta Junior Hockey League on Friday ...
A gigantic body-check that resulted in a shattered pane glass caused a lengthy delay in what was, at the time, a 1-1 tie in 3rd period between the Rangers and the Lloydminster Bandits.

The nearly 30-minute break seemed to benefit the Bandits as they responded only a few minutes into the resumption of play with the go-ahead goal, en route to their eventual 3-1 victory.
Ben Roth scored the lone goal of the game for Vegreville in their final contest on home ice of the 2019-2020 Regular Season.
The Rangers and Bandits will renew the rivalry on Sunday in Lloydminster in what will be the final game ahead of the playoffs for both teams.
