CORNER BROOK The Rangers can clinch the local men’s ball hockey crown tonight at the Pepsi Centre.
The Molson Luxury Limo Rangers lead Whelan’s Gate/Sorrento/Marble Zip Tours 2-1 in a Corner Brook Molson Ball Hockey League best-of-five affair for bragging rights.
The Rangers took a stranglehold on the series with a convincing 8-2 victory Tuesday night with Mark Gillis leading the charge with a two-goal performance against an opposing team expecting to have only seven players suiting up for the eliminaton game because players have other commitments such as Michael Hynes and Jordan Kennedy who aren’t available because they are attending hockey camps.
Mike Wight, Jamie O’Connell, Dwayne Evoy, Darren Buckle, Matt Russell and Steve Simms added single tallies to the scoresheet in support of winning goaltender Adam Hicks.
The Rangers lost the series opener 2-1 in an exciting showdown decided in overtime, but Simms notched a hat trick to lead the Rangers to a 5-2 victory in Game 2 to even the series.
Tonight’s Game 4 is scheduled for 8 p.m. at the Pepsi Centre.
