AMHERST – They will not have a chance to bury them, but the Amherst CIBC Wood Gundy Ramblers have a chance to dig a very deep hole for the Yarmouth Mariners when they hit the ice tonight in Yarmouth.

Up 2-0 in their Maritime Hockey League best-of-seven division semi-final showdown, the Ramblers would take a 3-0 lead if they win tonight on the Mariners home turf.

Before the playoff started, Ramblers bench boss and general manager Jim Bottomley said there wouldn’t be any blowouts, saying each game would be close.

His prediction has proved true in the first two games.

The first game on Saturday was a come-from-behind win that the Ramblers won 5-4 in Yarmouth, and the second game on Tuesday was tied 2-2 until late in the third when the Ramblers took a 3-2 lead for the win.

Ramblers veteran Brett Shute scored both winning goals.

Brock Morrison has also been on fire for the first two games, scoring two goals in Game 1, and one goal in Game 2.

Richard Tingley has been strong in goal for the Ramblers, stopping 32 of 36 shots in Game 1 and 28 of 30 in Game-2.

His teammates had 22 shots on Yarmouth goaltender Travis Wilkins in Game 1 in Yarmouth, and 33 shots on Chase Guadet.

The puck drops for tonight’s game at 7:30 p.m.

    I wish the Ramblers all the success possible in tonight's game in Yarmouth. As long as they stay out of the penalty box and get fair refereeing they will be fine. "GO RAMBLERS GO"
