Boston Jr. Rangers 06E

(November 24, 2019) Sunday morning brought inclement conditions for the 95 Giants both inside and outside the New England Sports Village in Attleboro Massachusetts. Outside it was pouring rain, and inside the Boston Junior Rangers 06E were providing the thunder and lightning. Defenseman Derek Nazzaro set the tone early with a booming hit at the blue line. Then the lighting started in the form of right winger Tyler Barnes. Barnes took a pass from PJ Civitarese (1g-2a, 3 pts) and proceeded to outskate the opposing team to eventually beat the goalie short side. Five minutes later, lighting struck again when Barnes scampered down the ice and scored an unassisted  goal. Soon after, defenseman Brady Yutkins brought the boom again when he folded an opposing player along the boards. Early in the second period, Civitarese slid over a beautiful pass to Barnes who tapped it in for his 3rd goal of the morning. (3g-1a, 4 pts) The old saying “when it rains, it pours” held true this morning when Finn McNeil scored a goal off a shot by Cooper Hall. Late in the 2nd period, Barnes made a nice pass that led to a breakaway by Civitarese, who beat the goalie stick side with a quick wristshot to increase the lead to 5-1. Nate Hemman, playing defense this week for the shorthanded Rangers, made some great plays throughout the game to help his team secure the victory. The final buzzer rang and the Rangers headed to the locker room with the 5-2 win, and moved to 7-3 in the BHL-American Division standings.

T. Barnes. B. Yutkins, & J. Connell

(November 23, 2019) - On Saturday, the Rangers 06E played host to the Boston Advantage 06S at Breakaway Ice Center in Tewksbury. PJ Civitarese got the scoring started in the 1st period when he took a pass from Tyler Barnes and lifted it past the goalie for the early lead. But late in the 1st period, the Advantage tied things up and then took the lead on a couple odd-man rushes that resulted in goals. Despite tough physical play by Brady Yutkins and Cam Wolf, and aggressive forechecking by Finn McNeil, the Advantage were able to extend their lead to 3-1 mid-way through the 2nd period. Soon after though, Barnes jumped into the fray with a goal to make it 3-2, assist going to Reid Blaeser. In the 3rd period, defense and forechecking once again were the name of the game as both teams had limited opportunities. The Advantage put things out of reach though late in the 3rd period with a power play goal, dropping the Rangers record to 6-3 on the season.

Reed Blaeser

(November 10th, 2019) Two heavy weights in the BHL American Division locked horns for a tilt at Breakaway Ice Center in Tewksbury and the fans didn’t leave disappointed. The Springfield Rifles drew first blood when they scored with 6:00 mins left in the 1st period. The score remained 1-0 until the Rifles struck again mid-way through the 2nd period to extend the lead to 2-0. PJ Civitarese got the home team fired up when he scored on a well placed wrist shot after receiving a perfect pass from line mate Tyler Barnes from the corner. The 2nd period ended with the Rangers down 2-1. In the 3rd period, the Rifles scored two more goals to make it 4-1, and it appeared  they were ready to run away with it, but the never-say-die Rangers had other plans. With 3:00 mins in the 3rd period, Civitarese launched a low, hard slap shot which the goalie initially saved, but Battling Barnes swooped in and buried the rebound, closing the gap to 4-2. With 1:40 left and the goalie pulled, Civitarese hit Cole Robinson on a cross-ice pass, which Robinson whistled pass the sliding goalie to make it 4-3. The hometown crowd was on their feet, wondering if the Rangers could pull off another late game rally. The Rangers had several opportunities while the clock ran out, but none made it past the goalie. The game ended in a 4-3 loss for the Rangers, their first in 7 games.  The Rangers drop to 6-2 on the season but look forward to starting up another unbeaten streak.

PJ Civitarese
(November 9th, 2019) On Saturday, the Rangers drove south to face Rhode Island’s #1 tier-two team, the Saints. The teams battled hard in the first period but Ranger’s goalie Luke Dinsmore and the Saints goalie each made some big saves to keep both teams scoreless. Early in the 2nd period, the Saints scored two goals in a short period of time to jump on top. But as the Rangers have done all season, they answered back. Pj Civitarese scampered up the right side and made a crisp tape-to-tape pass that Cooper Hall tapped in on a backhand to get the Rangers on the score board. Five minutes later, Hall struck again to tie it, this time the assist going to Tyler Barnes. But the Saints weren’t ready to pack things up just yet and answered with two quick goals to take the 4-2 lead. With four minutes remaining in the 2nd, the Rangers closed the gap when Cole Robinson tallied his first goal of the morning, assists going to Nate Hemman and Civitarese. One minute later, Blake Haberstroh tied things up by punching in a rebound, assist going to Hall. With the clock ticking down in the 2nd period, the Saints scored again to regain the 5-4 lead. In the 3rd period, Ranger’s goalie Tristan Kerr turned into an impenetrable wall and the Ranger defense became downright offensive. Defenseman Brady Yutkins blasted a shot from just inside the blue line that found its way to the back of the net. Assist to Barnes. And just 1 minute later, defenseman Derek Nazarro pulled the trigger on a shot that made its way through traffic and in for the go-ahead goal. Finn McNeil contributed immensely throughout the game with his constant and relentless forechecking and backchecking, making it difficult for the Saints to get things going. Late in the 3rd period, the Rangers got some insurance when Hemman netted a goal after being set up by Robinson. The buzzer soon sounded and the Rangers recorded the 7-5 victory and improved their record to 6-1.
