Rampage win game 1 of RMLL division final over Rockyview Silvertips

The Red Deer Rampage kept the regular-season momentum rolling in the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League Junior B Tier I Central Division Final.

Red Deer edged the Rockyview Silvertips Monday 11-9 to win the best-of-three series in two straight games.

Sunday, they collected their 11th straight win at the Kinex with a dominant 10-2 victory.

“The effort was really good. That’s actually the first time all year we’ve had our full lineup. You could see there were some chemistry issues. They worked really hard, team looks exciting,” said head coach Trey Christensen.

Red Deer used a late period serge in the second to power their way to victory.

Leading 4-2 with 3:30 left in the frame, Teren Christensen started the rally with a penalty shot goal. He added another in the final minutes of the period, along with goals by Sheridan Cook and Ben Arifin.

“We had that goal just before, then add in the penalty shot– we’re definitely a team like that, once you can see that ball go in, then it definitely gets everybody else going. The other people believe they can score as well,” Christensen added.

Cook added a third-period tally and Christensen also buried his hat trick goal. Keifer Christensen and Jayden Reschny scored in the victory. Noah Zimmer had a strong game between the pipes for Red Deer turning side, 34 shots in the win.

Red Deer will also host the Larry Bishop Memorial Cup (RMLL Championship) from July 26-28 at the Kinex.
