Rampage dominant Warriors in playoff opening win

The Red Deer Rampage used a six-goal performance from Dustin Bell to cruise past the Edmonton Warriors in Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League Junior B tier one playoff action Friday.

At the Kinex, Bell scored three times in just under two minutes in the middle period and helped Red Deer trap the Warriors in their own zone for most of the frame. Bell added two more goals in the third period and had one in the first.

The Rampage finished off the night with a 13-9 win and will look to close out the best-of-three series on Saturday in Edmonton.
