Varsity hockey suffers a tough loss to St. Francis De Sales 7-1

Sophomore Tim Kramer and senior Jacob Demeter were key despite another tough Ranger Hockey loss at Patterson Ice Arena Friday Night to St. Francis De Sales by a score of 7-1. St. Francis De Sales was the state runner up in hockey last year from Ohio and have a lot of talent. Tim and Jacob did a great job against outstanding talent Friday night. Tim scored the only goal for the Rangers, which was a key momentum booster down the stretch.

The first period went decent, despite some careless penalties in which St. Francis took advantage of. St. Francis is an extremely good team and they feed off teams making careless errors and they end up turning them into goals. The second period had seen a little bit more daylight for the Rangers, as Tim scored to put the Rangers on the board. The Rangers were down 6-1 at the end of two.

In the third period, the Rangers looked much better defensively, especially since they only allowed one goal that period. If the Rangers played the way they did in the third all game, this battle may have seen a different outcome.

The Rangers are still looking for their first win, but Saturday night will be a big test as they face the reigning State Champions of Ohio, St. Ignatius. This may be the biggest test the Rangers have faced and if they can win this game, they will for sure be able to bounce back and make a run for the OK White title.
