The Jr. Rangers kicked off December with a packed weekend of league play. Nearing the halfway point of the season, many of the Rangers teams are starting or continuing to thrive.
The 09E's earned a weekend sweep. They kicked off the weekend with a 5-4 win at home against the 95 Giants, and then knocked off the first place Seacoast Spartans on Sunday with a 5-2 decision in Exeter.
The 06S team shut out the Wizards in Tewksbury 3-0 on Saturday. Coming off the victory, the 06 team held the lead for the majority of the game on Sunday against the Glades Elite team, but ultimately fell to the tough squad from Vermont 5-4 in the last minute of the contest.
The 05E's continue to roll in E9 play with a pair of wins this weekend in Hingham, taking down both Boston Advantage teams. They defeated the Advantage Elite team 2-1 on Saturday, followed by a 5-0 shutout victory against the Advantage Select team.
The third weekend sweep for the Rangers came from the 05S team. Coming off winning the Montreal Fall Classic tournament last weekend, they went on the road to beat the NE Knights 8-2 on Saturday. The 05S Rangers returned to home ice Sunday morning to earn a convincing 7-3 win against the Rifles.
Capping off the recap is the 04E's. They only had one game this weekend, but kicked off the second half of their schedule with a 4-0 shutout win over the Americans at Hockeytown.
With only a few weeks left before a break in league play for the Holidays, the Rangers will look to continue to build on their recent success. Several Rangers teams will also look to take home some hardware when they compete in upcoming Christmas and New Years tournaments.
