Ramblers experience ups and downs during weekend split

TRURO - The Amherst Ramblers took on a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde look over the weekend keeping the MJAHL's best teams to one goal on Saturday before giving up five third period goals on Sunday in a 6-1 loss to the Truro Bearcats.
"I can't explain it. I thought we competed well at times and then we were bad at times and made some decisions," Rambler coach Corey Crocker said following Sunday's game. "It's a hard game to figure out sometimes. We played so well 24 hours before, but it was our fourth game in five nights and fatigue might have played a role."
Stephen Horyl scored twice for the Bearcats, including a shorthanded marker early in the first period that was the only goal in the first two periods.
Adam Laite, Cody Roland, Sam Hounsell and Andrew Harmes also scored in the third period for the Bearcats, who outshot the Ramblers 30-27. Chris Ivanko had two assists.
Zach Carson scored the lone Rambler goal with Derek Smith and Travis Turner adding assists.
The Ramblers return to action on Tuesday night when they host the division-leading Yarmouth Mariners at 7:30 p.m. at the stadium.
On Saturday in Amherst, Andrew Oakley had one of the best games of his career scoring a pair of goals and assisting on a third as the Ramblers defeated the Woodstock Slammers 3-1.
Brent Lynch also scored for Amherst, who led 1-0 after one period and 3-1 after two, while Matthew Squires added two assists.
Mark MacEachern replied for Woodstock, who outshot the Ramblers 36-33.
With a lot of ups and downs of late, Crocker is not concerned about consistency saying those types of things happen with a young hockey team.
"It's part of being young and everyone's learning from it. I'm not concerned about it," Crocker said. "We just need the guys to get concerned about the direction and not just be happy to be wearing the uniform."
