TRURO – The Amherst CIBC Wood Gundy Ramblers just couldn’t seem to get anything going dropping a 5-1 decision to the Truro Bearacts in MHL action on Friday night in Truro.
While the Ramblers controlled the play early on it was the Bearcats who scored first when Tyler Pyke scored on the power play 4:54 into the opening period, burying a rebound off a Riley Baggs point shot that Ramblers’ goalie Julian Galloway had no chance of stopping.
In the second period, the Bearcats scored three times with Karter Renouf scoring on the power play just 2:51 into the middle period while Noah Archibald added two more goals in the second period as the Bearcats built up a 4-0 lead.
The Ramblers got on the board when forward Caleb Rich tipped a shot by Kevin Resop with Bradley Dawe and Jordan King adding assists, but the Bearcats restored their four-goal lead when Campbell Pickard scored just 13 seconds later to round out the scoring.
The loss snapped the Ramblers’ three-game losing streak.
Amherst returns home for a pair of games this coming weekend with the Valley Wildcats at the stadium on Saturday at 7 p.m. and the Bearcats coming to town to renew their rivalry on Sunday at 2 p.m.
These are the only home games for the Ramblers in November as they head out back on the road on Friday, Nov. 24 to face the Edmundston Blizzard at the new Centre Jean Daigle.
