Jesse MacInnis of the Amherst Ramblers steals the puck from the Miramichi Timberwolves in Maritime Junior Hockey League action on the Amherst Stadium Wednesday. 

AMHERST - The Miramichi Timberwolves continue to give the Amherst Ramblers fits.

After falling behind 2-0 before the game was 10 minutes old, the Timberwolves scored four unanswered goals en route to a 4-2 win over the Ramblers in Maritime Junior Hockey League action on Wednesday.

It was the first home ice loss of the season for Amherst.

Billy Gaston had a goal and an assist for Miramichi, while Danny Wicks scored what proved to be the winning goal 6:31 into the third period when he converted off a rebound to the right of Ramblers' goalie Chase Marchand.

Ryan Power added a fourth goal two minutes later when his shot from the point went off the post and in the net.

Maxime Richard opened the scoring just 33 seconds into the game when he beat Miramichi goalie Jordan Kennedy with Brock Morrison and Ben Berisha adding assists.

Berisha gave the Ramblers a 2-0 lead when his shot from slot eluded Kennedy. Willie MacDonald added an assist. Alex Scully put Miramichi on the board with just over five minutes to go in the period and Gaston tied the game when he was left alone in front of Marchand with six seconds left in the second period.

The Ramblers thought they scored with just under two minutes to play in the game, but referee Jason Blanchard ruled the puck was kicked in by Cam McDonald. Amherst outshot Miramichi 44-30.

The Ramblers are in Woodstock on Friday and Truro on Sunday. dcole@amherstdaily.com

    Ramblers not tough enough, get pushed around too easy.
