Brandon MacLean in action

 

AMHERST – Some wins are sweeter than others. Dominating the Weeks Crushers 6-0 last Thursday was sweet. But beating the top-ranked team in the league 6-3, in front of a hometown crowd, might be even sweeter. And the big story of tonight had to be the performance of Rambler Mathieu Boudreau, who scored four goals – more than the Woodstock Slammers managed with their entire lineup.

The Slammers scored first, on a powerplay. It was 8:27 in the first period. Then Mathieu Boudreau went to work, scoring twice, at 13:26 – on a powerplay – and 14:51. Both times he was assisted by Brandon MacLean and Jordan Escott. 2-1 for the Ramblers at the end of the first.

Woodstock fought back in the second, scoring twice in the first half. Then their nemesis, Boudreau, evened up the score 3-3 at 14:40, with an assist from MacLean. MacLean got a goal of his own, assisted by Escott and Cole MacMillan, two minutes later to give the Ramblers a one point lead starting the third.

Boudreau wasn’t done quite yet, though. On a powerplay, just after six minutes, he scored again, assisted by Jamie Bishop and Escott. Another seven minutes passed and Trevor Layton posted a goal, the final.

    Great victory and once again the team stood up for each other, just like they did in the 6-0 win over Weeks Crushers on Thursday night in New Glasgow. Although first place is possible it is improbable, Yarmouth would have to lose its remaining two games and Amherst would have to win their remaining three games. I like Amherst's chance of locking up second place though. Truro and Weeks Crushers will more than likely play in the mini series to determine who finishes in the forth place spot to determine who will play number one in the playoffs. It does look like the Ramblers and Metro Marauders will play off in one semi final round. The winner between Truro and Weeks will probably play Yarmouth in the other Bent division semi final.. GO RAMBLERS GO.
