Vengeful effort falls short for hockey in its rematch against Grand Rapids Christian


After two straight games of not being able to put up points on the board, FHC hockey found a way to get right back into the scoring column. Playing Grand Rapids Christian for the second straight time in three days, FHC saw an opportunity to reopen its offense and seek revenge on the Eagles after the Rangers fell short 3-0 on Monday.

Thanks to goals from junior Anthony Ott and sophomore Owen Barber, the Rangers managed to fight hard throughout the entire game. On the other hand, the Eagles managed to match the offense FHC provided throughout the game and kept the contest close. In the end, the Eagles came out victorious with a 3-2 win over the Rangers. This drops FHC down to a record of 10-14 and leads them into a Senior-Night match against Lowell/Caledonia. Head coach Bill McSween is excited for the opportunity to get back in the win column in front of a packed house at the Barn.

“We can expect the seniors to come out and play hard,” coach McSween said. “We need to snap this losing streak so that we can head into regionals with positive vibes.”

This is also an opportunity for senior Jake Munger to get back in the net and start for the Rangers. Along with Jake, this will be seniors Lucas Jeffreys, Josh and Noah Smith, Sheldon Ramsey, and Connor DeFouw’s last game at Patterson while being the home team.

“I expect Munger to play hard, have fun, and enjoy it,” coach McSween said. “The boys on the team love him, and I expect them to play hard for him.”
