ST. ISIDORE – A win and a tie kept the South Grenville Rangers a point behind the first place Clarence Castors in the National Capital Junior Hockey League standings this weekend.

The Rangers started the weekend coming off a 4-2 loss to the Gatineau Hull-Volant when they faced the Almonte Inferno October 30.

South Grenville opened the game with a two goal lead after 20 minutes, adding a third goal in the second period to lead 3-0. The Rangers added three more goals in the third period as Riley Hogan earned his first shutout of the season between the pipes.

Team captain Jordan Poulin, and defenceman Aidan Bailey each scored twice in the Rangers’ 6-0 shutout win over the Inferno. Owen Webster and Zach White each had singletons in the game.

South Grenville then travelled to St. Isidore to take on the Eagles the following day.

The team ended the first period with a 2-1 lead and traded a goal each in the second. St. Isidore tied the game late in the third period, which ended in overtime 4-4.

The Eagles took advantage of opportunities against the Rangers, scoring three of the team’s four goals on the power play. South Grenville earned 38 minutes in the sin-bin during the game.

Three points out of four keep the Rangers neck-and-neck with the Castors at the top of the NCJHL standings with a 6-1-2 record. South Grenville trails first place Clarence by one point.

The two teams will face off for a rematch November 6 in Cardinal.
