The Midget AAA Rangers picked up two points this weekend.
 
Saturday night (Dec.9) in Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan went up 2-0 on the Knights of Columbus (KC) Pats thanks to goals from Jacob Boucher and Blake Hammel.
 
KC battled back to grab a 3-2 lead, however, Boucher was able to salvage a point with a late tally in the third to make the final 3-3.
 
"I think we just have to bare down on the little details," said Boucher.
 
Sunday afternoon at the JRC, Fort Sask held a 3-1 lead over the Calgary Northstars until the last two minutes of regulation.
 
After Calgary cut the lead in half, Spencer Weinkauf tied the game with 26 seconds left.
 
"They were pretty emotional after the game, Obviously when a team comes from behind and ties it like that it's hard. They're pretty upset and it's pretty quiet in there," said head coach Ty Valin.
 
The Rangers settled for their second straight 3-3 tie. Nate Ibraheem had two goals and Austin Saint added another.
 
"We played 58 minutes strong," said Ibraheem. "It's a tough bounce at the end, but we need to bare down and get those because those points mean a lot later on in the standings when you want to get home ice."
 
Goaltender Sebastian Cossa made 33 saves in the tie.

The Fort Saskatchewan Midget AAA Rangers and Novice Rangers also ran a “Fill the Net” campaign at the rink during the day to raise items for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank.

"It's really great to see the community come together for a great cause. It's nice to do something like this around Christmas time especially," added Ibraheem.

The food will be dropped off this week.
