On Saturday, the Boston Jr Rangers 06E traveled to Concord MA to take on the undefeated Assabet Patriots 06S team. The Rangers drew first blood when Cole Robinson took a pass from defenseman Brady Yutkins and beat the goalie with a wrist shot from the right slot. The first period ended with the Rangers still on top 1-0, thanks to some unbelievable saves by goalie Luke Dinsmore. Early in the second period, the Rangers were assessed a five-minute major penalty, which the Patriots capitalized on by netting 2 goals. But the Rangers quickly put that behind them when Tyler Barnes snagged a loose puck at center ice, used his speed to beat 2 defenders, and then made a nifty move to score the goal. Four minutes later, Cooper Hall tied up the game at 3-3 when he buried a pass from Robinson. In the third period, Reed Blaeser clanged a shot off the crossbar, but the ever-battling PJ Civitarese was there to put the rebound in for the 4-3 lead. The two teams went up and down the ice in a fast pass game until the Patriots scored with a 1:30 left in the 3rd to make it 4-4. But the Rangers never let up and Hall scored his 2nd goal with 51 seconds left, assists to Barnes and Robinson. The Patriots tried to answer but defensemen Derek Nazarro prevented a 3 on 1 rush with a great body check just before the blue line. The Rangers held on to the 5-4 win and improved to 2-1 on the season.
Another Win for the Team
The Boston Jr Rangers 06E team headed to Chestnut Hill on Saturday night to take on the Yale Bulldogs at Boston College’s Conte Forum. The Bulldogs got on the board first when they were able to put in a loose puck in front of the net. The Rangers tied it up soon after though when Cooper Hall scored on a rebound. Late in the 1st period, Cole Robinson took control of the puck at center ice, skated down the right side past a defender and buried a wrist shot to put the Rangers up 2-1. In the second period, Cayne Leive fired a shot from a tough angle on the left side that beat the goalie short side. Later in the 2nd period, Robinson battled hard in front of the net to put in his 2nd goal of the night to make it 4-1. Throughout the game, the Rangers relentless back checking, led by forwards Reed Blaeser and Tyler Barnes, caused havoc on the ice. The Rangers’ defensemen were also formidable, with Jackson Masters and Caleb Yeung anchoring the blue line all night. The Rangers took the 4-1 lead into the 3rd period when Robinson netted his 3rd goal of the night, set up nicely by Nate Hemman and Derek Nazarro. The Rangers gave up a late goal but skated away with a well-played 5-2 win.
