AMHERST - The Amherst Ramblers Alumni Scholarship Society held a successful alumni game on Saturday raising money to support its bursary program.
Prior to the game, the society honoured both former Ramblers Moe Lamirande and Dave Kiley for their exploits on the ice while Gerry Martin was honoured for his contribution as the first president of the former Amherst minor hockey association.
In the game, former Buffalo Sabre Mac Davis scored three times as the blue team defeated the red 11-7.
Terry 'Mouser' McManaman and Grayson Ingraham each scored two goals and added single assists while former AHL player Ritchee Walctott had a goal and two assists.
Also scoring for the blue squad were Foster Elm, Andy Davis and Terry Lewis while Mike MacKenzie with three, Robert Mansour with two and Joe Bourgeois with one added assists.
Former Truro Bearcat Steve Morrissey had two goals for the red team with fellow Bearcat Steve Topshee also scoring twice. Steve Maltby, Marshall MacDonald and Red Dwyer each scored once.
Peter Estabrooks had three assists and Pat O'Brien had one.
The game also saw longtime Halifax coach Jim Bottomley and former three-time league scoring champion Jim Cummings of Truro suit up for the blue team.
The society wants to thank Terry Rhindress for refereeing the game and scorekeepers Tim Ripley and Wade Perry.
The alumni scholarship society was created last summer as a non-profit organization to celebrate the Ramblers' rich tradition. It's dedicated to providing bursaries to Amherst and area athletes going to college or university.
Rambler goalie Andrew Flemming was presented the first bursary two weeks ago.
