Junior Gold Hockey
Rugby posts 0-2-1 record
SIDNEY, MONT. — Rugby’s Junior Gold hockey team ran into some tough competition at a season-opening tournament, falling to two Saskatchewan teams — Strasburg and Estevan — before losing in a shootout to the host team, Richland, here on Nov. 29-30. The shootout loss, however, will count as a tie in the Ice Hawks overall standings.
Aaron Teigen had a goal and two assists in the three games for Rugby. Kyle Volk had a pair of goals.
In the touranment opener against Strasburg, the Ice Hawks spotted the Maroons a 4-0 lead before battling back. Rugby scored three straight times to pull within a goal. Strasburg added an empty net tally in the third to ice the win.
Rugby then had to face Estevan, Sask. a few hours later and lost 8-2. “We scored the first goal, but they dominated the rest of the game,” Rugby coach Jay McClintock Jr., said. “We couldn’t match their speed in the final two periods.“
Rugby ended the tournament losing in a shootout to host, Richland. The game ended 1-1 through regulation and an overtime period. The Rangers outscored Rugby 2-0 in a shootout. However, the game will count in the standings as a tie.
“We had some good scoring opportunities in that game, but couldn’t capitilize on them,” he said. “They had a deep bench and again we were a tired bunch.”
The Ice Hawks did suffer a pair of injuries during the tournament to forward Daniel Gannarelli and defenseman Jacob McClintock. Their status for this Sunday, Dec. 7 home opener is unknown.
