Squires scores four times in 5-3 clinching win

Ramblers sweep Wolverines

AMHERST - The Amherst Ramblers celebrated a 3-0-playoff sweep in their best of five series against the Halifax Wolverines after defeating them by a score of 5-2 last night at Amherst Stadium.
It was a huge night for Matthew Squires as he shoveled in 4 goals and one assist.
Andrew Oakley netted the other Rambler goal and also had three assists. Other assists came courtesy of Derek Smith with two and Zach Carson with two, while Trevor Steen and Jordan Escott each had single helpers.
"We worked towards this all year," Crocker said. "We keep talking how it's a 58 game process to the playoffs and we accomplished a lot of things, as we did in the regular season."
Despite the sweep Crocker said the Wolverines were a tough team.
"Halifax is a very good hockey team and we have all the respect for them in the world," Crocker said. " I thought our speed was a factor in the series. I thought we out-hustled them. We are very happy as an organization to move on."
With the Wolverines out of the way the Ramblers now get a chance to reel in some big fish when they take on the best team in the MJAHL; the Yarmouth Mariners.
"Obviously we have to change our game plan a little bit," Crocker said. "But we'll take tomorrow off and rest and get back to practice on Thursday."
The Ramblers first game will be in Yarmouth on Saturday night.

    Congratulations to the Rams on taking out the Wolverines in 3 straight!!
    The boys in purple and white have excelled beyond the expectations of even their coaches this year.
    With mostly a rookie roster along with a couple of capable veterans,they have proved over and over again, how keeping in good shape,having a positive attitude and never giving up paid big dividends.
    I sincerely hope when the next series starts(against Yarmouth),all the hockey fans of Cumb. Co. and surrounding areas will give these players the support they are so deserving of.
    Let's fill the JUNGLE and catch RAMBLER FEVER -you'll love it.
    A crazed hockey fan.
