Red Deer Renegades open Junior B Tier II lacrosse season with big win

The Red Deer Renegades cruised to open the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League Junior B Tier II season.

Red Deer kicked off the campaign with a dominant 21-7 win over the Medicine Hat Sun Devils Saturday afternoon at the Kinex.

Sunday, the Renegades game was postponed because of poor highway conditions.

In the opener, Red Deer had a 3-2 lead after the first period before they broke out in a big way in the second.

They scored nine unanswered goals in the second, with Chad Mears and Andrew Keller each lighting the lamp twice. Tristyn Zarubiak, Nicholas McKain, Brandon Heidinger, Matthew Giele, Riley Sitko also scored in the frame.

Mears and Keller each finished off hat tricks in the third, and Keller added a fourth late in the contest. Giele and Sitko buried in the third, while Nick Scott finished the scoring with a pair of goals to collect his hat trick.

Next up for the Renegades is a home date with the Sylvan Lake Yetti on May 3 at 8:30 p.m.
