AMHERST – The last time the Weeks Crushers visited Amherst, they left bruised by a 6-3 defeat. It was a different story tonight. Despite an early two-goal lead for the Ramblers, a weak second period left the hometown team open and the Crushers took advantage. A late rally in the final minutes of the game weren’t enough to turn the tide. A loss for the Ramblers, 4-2.
The Ramblers owned the first period. Just two pucks saw nets, both for Amherst: Jordan Escott at 14:43 and Brandon MacLean at 15:14.
The second period was all Crushers, with goals at 3:38, 4:24 and 17:09. Corey Bennett scored an empty net at 19:59 in the third.
