Riding a two-goal performance from Dennis Bellows, the Steers Insurance Curling Rangers defeated Clancy’s Pub 3-2 in the Corner Brook Molson Senior Men’s Soccer League’s regular season finale at Wellington Street Sports Complex on Monday night.

The loss snaps the first-place pub club’s eight-game winning streak that had been ongoing since June.

Brad Burton picked up the other goal in the victory, while Nick Taylor earned the W in net.

Greg Keats and Logan McIsaac did the damage for the pub club, who were backstopped by John Finn.

The top three teams in the league — the pub club, Rangers and MacAverys Sports Bar Tactics FC — will now form Division A of the opening playoff round, where they will compete in a single round robin for elimination round re-seeding.

The fourth- and fifth-place teams — the West Side Monarchs and Investors Group Under-18s — comprise Division B and will lock horns in a two-game, total-goal series to determine the fourth seed in the elimination round.

Post-season action begins Wednesday night, as the Rangers take on the Tactics, while the Monarchs battle the U18s in the first of their two-game series.
