Bandits and Rangers Play Thriller after Pausing to Remember
After together participating in a moment of silence before the start of the game tonight the Cumberland Bandits and South Grenville Rangers played a thriller in at the Ray Friel that went to OT.
With heavy heart both sides skated onto the ice, took time to remember the families and victims of the tragic accident in Renfrew Friday morning and then played three solid periods of hockey and then settled the game in overtime when Bandits captain Marty Forget got his first of the season to win the game.
The first period ended scoreless with both goaltenders making big stop for their respective teams. The Bandits then opened the scoring in second when Marc Bertrand scored from the blue line. The Rangers quickly tied it up at one but Bandits points’ leader Alex Labrecque gave the Bandits the lead again with his 6th of the season. The Bandits held on to the lead until late in the third when the Rangers tied it up eventually sending the game in OT.
The game ended on a Bandits power play when Bandits Marty Forget scored and an elated Bandits Bench poured onto the ice to congratulate their leader. “I was happy to see the puck go in it was a good time for me to get my first of the season.” Said captain Marty Forget.
The Bandits don’t play Sunday and they will next play on Saturday November 4th when the league leading Papineau Vikings come to the Ray Friel. The Bandits will then travel to Clarence on Sunday to play the Castors for the first time.
