The Fort Saskatchewan Midget AAA Rangers now sit alone atop the north division.
 
On Friday night (Oct.19), the Rangers were down in Red Deer to face the Chiefs and the Fort came out flying.
 
Nate Ibraheem had a hat trick, while Jacob Boucher chipped in with three assists in a 5-1 victory over one of the top teams in the south division.

"They do a lot of little things right. Driving the net, getting shots and they're having success from it," said head coach Ty Valin. "We had a good, solid start, settled in, frustrated Red Deer and they eventually just started coughing a lot of pucks up and we were able to capitalize." 
 
Austin Saint and David Dach also found the back of the net for the Rangers. Ross Hawryluk picked up the win in net, making 23 saves.
 
A mere 15 hours later, Fort Sask continued south to Airdrie, where they topped the Bisons 4-2.
 
Hawryluk recorded his third straight win and sixth of the season. Alex Thacker, Colton Dach, Boucher and Ibraheem all had goals for the Rangers.
 
"We've got four lines and six defenceman going and everybody is contributing in different ways," added Valin. "We've put ourselves in a really good position but now the hard work begins. Everybody is gunning for us now."
 
Fort Saskatchewan now holds a record of 6-2 and top spot in the north division.
 
They'll welcome the Knights of Columbus Pats to the JRC on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
