    Its so sad the rams fell just short this year again, however it was a great and exciting season and a great playoff run. Congrats to coaches/executives/players on giving amherst a great season of hockey. On one last note, it was soooo disrespectful of those fans who filed out of the arena after truro scored the empty netter. Last game of careers for alot of those boys, the least you'll could have done was stayed and gave them a round of applause for all the hard work they put in this year, glad to see the true fans stayed, cause assuming all those that left were falling of the bandwagon anyways. IMO.

    What can I say except the Ramblers done us all proud in their quest for the division title. They appeared to run out of steam(so to speak) in the game Saturday night in the third period. No excuse, however they were missing several key players due to injury and suspensions. Truro proved to be the superior team in the end. I wish nothing but the best to the Ramblers in their upcoming futures, some will be back, however to those moving on, have a good future doing whatever you choose.
