After a tough loss Friday night to FHNE, the boys varsity ice hockey team looked to come back better than before. While taking on West Ottawa at home, the boys put up a tough fight but fell just short in a close match that ended in overtime.

The Rangers opened up the scoring with 2 goals from sophomore Mason Kelly. West Ottawa kept the score even throughout the match, leaving the score at 2-2. Right at the end of the third period, junior Hayden Sarjeant scored what seemed to be the game-winning goal right at the buzzer. After some discussion by the referees, the goal was not awarded to FHC because the puck wasn’t considered across the goal line when the buzzer sounded.

With the score now even at 2-2, the teams went into overtime. The Rangers played incredibly strong during the first bit of overtime but then the pieces started to fall apart. With three minutes left in overtime, the Rangers were put at a disadvantage due to a penalty. With a little under three minutes left in overtime, West Ottawa put one in the goal to give the Rangers their third loss of the season.

With their second loss in a row, the Rangers look to get back to their original winning ways in their upcoming games. Their next game will take place Wednesday, Jan. 9 against Catholic Central on the road.
