Rangers Head to Finals
Submitted By Dave Horne on Sunday, November 10, 2019
The Kitchener Jr Rangers MD Red team returned to form Sunday morning to route the Peterborough Pete’s 7 to 1 to head the finals in the Cambridge MD Festival. The convincing win sets the stage for the Rangers to play their rivals from Kitchener, MD Blue.

Jake Fisher got the Rangers going with a goal from Logan Duke and Josh McDonald. Caleb Cumming scored from Chad Morris and Connor Coughlin. Duke had a beauty unassisted after walking in and blasting one past the Petes keeper. Jacob Reid-Brant scored a pair back to back with Stephen Peppas earning an assist on both and McDonald and Kodi Blackshaw earning an assist each. Peppas then scored from Toby Pryce before Coughlin was rewarded for his hard work with an assist to Peppas.


Owen Neomaytka was able to stay focused in the game despite long stretches without pressure. That said, when the Pete’s broke into the Rangers zone Neomytka was sharp and made no errors.

The Rangers continued to forecheck well and were led by Quinten Earle and Denver Heiman in that area of the game. Both were amazing tracking down loose pucks and forcing decision.

Defensively, the decision making was sharp as well and Noah Park and Matt Gallant made several smart pinches and plays to exit the zone.

The Rangers will need to continue their discipline in the finals and try to repeat the performance of no penalties taken in the semi final if the team wants to take home the championship.

GO Rangers!
