Game Report: Kitchener Jr. Rangers at Huron-Perth Lakers (Sept. 27, 2016)

Coming off a busy weekend at the Alliance Showcase with each team playing four games, the Kitchener Jr. Rangers and the Huron-Perth Lakers were both back in at quickly at the historic Allman arena in Stratford.

The game started out a little slow with both teams more than likely still a little tired from the busy weekend they just had. The game went scoreless for nearly the first seven minutes before both teams scored in a combined 19 seconds. It was Huron-Perth who opened the scoring with Mason Goldie putting one past Corson Marit. Then just seconds later, Cole MacKay notched his Alliance leading 9th goal of the season.

The game continued to be a neutral zone battle until Jameson Mitchell, who is quickly becoming one of the leaders on defence for Kitchener, ripped home a slap shot past Zach Hill and the Jr. Rangers led 2-1 after the first period of play.

Game Report: Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs at Kitchener Jr. Rangers (Sept. 17, 2016)

It only took 14 seconds for the Kitchener Jr. Rangers to score their first goal of the season and they were able to ride that momentum to a 4-1 victory over the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs to get their Minor Midget season started on the right track.

It was an incredibly quick start for Kitchener. With top Alliance forward Justin McCombs starting the game at centre, his speed and quick movements opened up the defence of the Chiefs and a quick feed over to newcomer Brendan Bauer who put the fans in a frenzy early. While the scoring got underway early in this game, things settled down fairly quickly afterwards.

Both the Chiefs and the Jr. Rangers really did play neutral zone hockey for the remainder of the first period and the first half of the 2nd. It became apparent pretty early in the game that these teams were still adjusting to new coaching staffs and to each other to be honest.
