Hockey finds rhythm on offense but falls short to Rockford

Hockey action is back on for the week with exciting match-ups for the FHC Rangers. To start the busy week, the boys would travel to Rockford short-handed with only 11 active players to face off against the Rams.
After being shut out against Mona Shores, the Rangers were able to find their groove again. They managed to tie the game at 2-2, heading into the end of the first, after shots from senior Lucas Jeffreys and junior Sammy Mielock were able to find the back of the net. Scoring in this game was a necessary improvement the Rangers needed to install, after only being able to put up 6 shots on goal in the game prior.
“We’re hoping to keep getting better at our overall team structure,” head coach Bill McSween said. “If we play strong defensive hockey, the offense will come. We need to play on the right side of the puck at all times, especially when the games get tough and the game is tilted against us.”
The Rangers now fall to 2-3 on the season and remain at a conference record of 1-1. FHC will move on to face off against its conference rival, the East Grand Rapids Pioneers.
