Major Atom Rangers win OHE 'AA' championship banner
By Fred Sherwin
March 23, 2019

The Gloucester Rangers Major Atom AA team are Ontario Hockey East champions after sweeping past the Ottawa Valley Silver Seven in four straight games to win the title.

After winning the first three games in the first to seven point series 4-3, 6-4 and 4-1, the Rangers downed the Silver Seven 7-4 in the series finale on March 21 at the Cavanagh Sensplex thanks to a trio of answered goals late in the third period.

Adam Saari opened the scoring for the Rangers at the 3:52 mark of the first period, but the Silver Seven responded with a pair of goals in the final two minutes of the opening stanza to take a 2-1 into the break.

An unassisted marker by Nolan Burchett at the 1:24 mark of the second period would briefly tie the score only to have the Silver Seven regain the lead on a goal from Xavier Goussis less than three minutes later. They then extended their advantage on a goal from Chris Neil.

Down two goals heading into the third, the Rangers got a pair of goals from Bennett Desrochers and Jack Yates midway through the period. They then blew the game wide open with three goals 57 seconds apart in the next to last minute of the game.

Max Crete opened the floodgates with his 12th of the playoffs and then Desrochers scored his second of the game 15 seconds later. Crete then put the icing on the cake with lucky number 13.

The Rangers went into the playoffs with a small chip on their shoulder after losing the regular season title by just two points. The team had the title in their sights with just two games remaining but losses to the Kanata Blazer and the Silver Seven saw it slip through their fingers.

Determined to redeem themselves in the post season, the Rangers won the first two games of their opening round series against the Rideau St. Lawrence Kings in impressive fashion, but a 3-1 loss in Game 3 would serve as a wake up call for the young team which bounced back to win Game 4 by an identical 3-1 score and take the first to five point series six points to two.

After sweeping past the Kanata Blazers in the semi-finals, the Rangers won the first two games against the Silver Seven before the March Break. After a 12 day layoff they picked up right where they left off, winning Game 3 4-1 to set up the series finale on March 21.

The Rangers top scorer in the playoffs was Max Crete with 13 goals in 11 games, including a pair of shorthanded efforts. Xavier Landriault and Jake Yates added eight ad seven goals respectively and Bennet Desrochers led the team in assists with eight.

In net, goalies Jackson Howell and Liam Creally combined for nine wins and a 1.82 goals against average.
