Varsity hockey falls to Grandville 4-7 in a hard-fought battle

Despite scoring an impressive eight goals in their last two games, the boys varsity hockey team feel to the Grandville Bulldogs 4-7 Friday night. Senior Jacob Demeter was a bright spot for the Rangers, scoring two of the four total goals. Senior captain Charlie Brewer and junior Josh Koets were also bright spots by working hard all three periods. The Rangers will take on the Catholic Central Cougars Saturday at Patterson.

The first period went well for the Rangers. They were up 2-0 with five minutes left in the first and were looking just like they did in their victorious game against Reeths-Puffer last Saturday. But three quick goals by Grandville to end the first changed the momentum in favor of the Bulldogs and the Rangers knew they had to make some adjustments heading into the second period. The second started off rough, as Grandville scored again to put the Bulldogs up 4-2, but the Rangers did not let up. Two more goals in the second put the Rangers right back in the game, the score being all tied up at four as the second period came to a conclusion. Grandville added three more goals in the third to put the game away with a final score of 4-7 in a hard-fought battle between two excellent teams.

This puts FHC at 1-2 in conference play. The way the Rangers have been playing lately, they definitely look like a team that can compete for the OK White title. The next game against the Catholic Central Cougars will be a big test for the Rangers to see if they are really built to win the OK White.
