Fort Sask ended up on the wrong side of a high scoring affair.
 
The Fort Saskatchewan Bantam AAA Rangers are struggling to piece together wins, but it's not for the lack of effort.
 
Sunday (October 8), the Southeast Tigers rolled into the JRC and held off multiple Ranger comebacks to win, 6-5.
 
"You got to be talking and ready to go, anything can happen at any moment," said Ranger Blake Eastman.
 
Fort Sask got goals from Dylan Thompson, Alden Peichel and Jake Eichenlaub.
 
Down 5-4 going into the third, an early powerplay marker by Eastman (his second of the game) evened things up. 
 
"We have a lot of speedy guys out there, but our breakouts have to be on point at all moments," added Eastman.
 
The Tigers were able to spoil the tie with 33 seconds left, as Ty Moore was left alone backdoor.
 
Goaltender Beckett Langkow came in for Brad Mistol in the third, making some big saves to give his team a chance.
 
"We can always rely on (Langkow), he's just a great goalie and solid in the net."
 
The Rangers also lost on Saturday to the Lethbridge Goldenhawks, 5-2.
 
Next up for the Bantam AAA team will be Saturday on the road against the Grande Peace Storm.
