The team’s first afternoon game was a success, as the Ramblers were able to grab their first win on the young season over the Truro Bearcats 4-2 in front of 590 fans at the stadium.
Drew MacIntyre brought the Rams faithful to their feet halfway through the opening period, slotting home a cross-crease pass from Cooper Cormier to get his first goal of the season on the power play. Truro would make a strong push, scoring two goals in 15 seconds, however, that’s where their offence would stop. The Bearcats would hold the lead after 20 minutes of play.
A back-and-forth second period would only see one goal scored for the good. Jonah Jelley tied the game four minutes into the second, and after big saves from Lyam LeBlanc, we would head to the third tied at two goals a piece.
The Ramblers would come out flying in the third applying strong pressure to the Bearcats, and it wouldn’t take long for the pressure to pay off, Brandon Cormier gave the Ramblers the lead back five minutes into the third period. Liam Dutcher would seal off the win for the Ramblers scoring his first Jr. A goal to send the fans home happy with their team winning 4-2.
The Ramblers swept the games three stars, Lyam LeBlanc backstopped the team making 35 saves and getting his first win, he was named the game’s third star. Cooper Cormier’s strong preseason has carried into the regular season he had two helpers to get named as the second star, and Jonah Jelley had the game-tying goal, he would add an assist to earn first-star honours.
