Mixed results for lacrosse squads

When you’re hot, you’re hot and the Red Deer TBS Rampage know that firsthand after an easy win in tier junior B lacrosse action.

At home on Saturday, the Rampage scored early and often en route to a 20-5 win over the Northern Alberta Crude.

“The Rampage won their sixth straight game in a decisive fashion,” said manager Marty Vellner.

“We jumped out to a 10-1 lead in the first period and never looked back.”

Leading the charge for the Rampage was Ross Cunningham, who fired in four goals and set up two more for a six point effort.

Marshall Just and Kevin Langlois each potted three goals, while Trevor House and Scott Ebbert both had two goals each.

Chipping in with singles were Spencer Einhorn, Cole deGraaf, Spencer Lee, Pearce Just, Curtis Ennis and Tyler Gauthier, with Adam Ferguson and Patrick Vellner each setting up three goals.

Sunday saw the Rampage return to Earth though, with a 16-9 loss to the Mountaineers in Calgary.

In junior B tier two action, both the Red Deer Sword Transport Revenge and Weatherford Renegades were on the floor and both had tough weekends.

The Renegades played just one game, losing 11-8 to Strathmore, with Dylan Thudium and Dion Daost both scoring two goals each in the loss.

The fifth place Revenge, meantime, had a chance to make up some ground on the second place Okotoks Ice and the third place Calgary Sabrecats, but just couldn’t get it done, falling 11-7 to the Ice at home before dropping a hard fought 8-7 decision to the Sabrecats on the road.

Jordan Hemstad lead all Revenge scorers, tallying four goals in two games, with Skylar Sargeant finding the back of the net three times in the two contests.
