It seems the only opponent that can stop the South Grenville Rangers from winning games is Mother Nature.
The Rangers improved their win streak to seven games this past weekend with a 3-2 win over the Metcalfe Jets at the Larry Robinson Arena in Metcalfe.
The win improves the Rangers' record to 25-2-1, earning 51 of a possible 56 points this season. They have a 25-point lead in the National Capital Junior Hockey League West Division standings over second place North Dundas Rockets. Their historic run puts this team up there with the greatest junior hockey teams in local history, including the great teams of the Prescott Falcons, Spencerville Bruins and Cardinal Broncos. The Rangers are the most successful amateur team to represent the area since goalie Les McAllister backstopped the 1962-63 Kemptville-Prescott Combines on their road to the Allen Cup Senior playdowns before losing to the Moncton Hawks in New Brunswick.
After their game against St. Isadore was cancelled due to weather on Sat., January 18, the Rangers hit the road Friday to take on the Jets in Metcalfe.
South Grenville captain Brody Ranger had a goal and an assist for South Grenville. And appropriately, you would expect a player named Ranger to score the winning goal for South Grenville. Owen Webster and Jordan Dodge both scored power play goals. Cole Edgley had a pair of assists for the Rangers with Cameron Dillon also picking up a helper.
Mark Brosseau and Chris Martin both had goals for the Jets while Connor Weatherhead had an assist.
Samuel Limoges-Ring picked up the win between the pipes for South Grenville.
