In one of the tightest game of the season so far for the varsity ice hockey team, the Rangers barely edged out Grand Rapids Christian to win 2-1 in overtime. For the Rangers, this game was a very different pace. Typically the offense is primed and active, but in last night’s game, the defense is what kept the Rangers in it.

Scoring the only goal for FHC during regulation was sophomore Mason Kelly. Grand Rapids Christian also put a goal on the board to tie the game at 1 at the end of three periods. Senior Carl Mielock played in goal to start the game and had plenty of strong saves to keep the Rangers competing. Later in the game, freshman Jake Munger took over the spot in goal and also had some impressive saves himself. When the buzzer rang for the end of three periods, both teams stood with one goal each.

In overtime, the Rangers were able to push across the other goal they needed to take the victory. Senior Nathan Hartline blocked a puck to get it out of the zone and was able to pass it to junior Cole Munger. Cole took advantage of this clutch moment, took his shot, and put the goal in the back of the net to give FHC another victory on the season.

Adding another win to their strong record, the boys now stand at 8-1-1 on the season. Their next game will take place Saturday, Dec. 22 on the road against Greenville.
