Saturday Nov 22
Minor hockey games were cancelled on this ugly snowy day but Regina Silver Foxes still came looking for trouble.
A wild game Saturday night provided some entertaining hockey but once again the Rage ran into a hot goalie and could only squeeze one goal past him. No scoring throughout the first 2 frames in spite of outshooting the Silver foxes by double. Early in the third, Vic Pernitsky from Mark Ganter would get the Rage on the board but a power play goal by Regina would tie it up. After overtime and a shootout the Rage would find themselves on the wrong side of the stat and give up another ``should win``. Rage are struggling against the weaker teams and seem to rise against the big clubs. Still looking to put it all together.
Silver Foxes 2 @ Rage 1

Minor Hockey Weekend!
By all accounts the annual Kerrobert Minor Hockey weekend was a huge success! With hundreds of families passing through the gates to take part in the fun, the local arena was once again the hub of activity in the boom town!

Kerrobert Initiation White and Black squared off early Saturday to entertain the morning crowd.
Luseland came to face the Novice at noon and went down in defeat 11-1 to the Tigers. The Novice then headed out on the road the next day to Eston the Novice Tigers would duplicate that score and take it to Eston 11-1.
The Atoms would also entertain Luseland foes and succumb 10 -1.
The Pee Wees hang a spanking on North Battleford 19-2!
The Rage invited all Minor Hockey players with a free game pass. They then proceeded to shock the big crowd by taking the top place (13-0-0) Regina Capitals by a score of 6-4. The Rage scored 3 quick goals in the first 3 minutes to take the mighty Capitals by surprise. They held a solid lead until penalties in the third bit the Rage and they let the Capitals pull to within one before an empty net clincher would send Regina home with their first loss of the year. The Unity and Kindersley connections stole the show, Mark Ganter with 3 points on the night, Vic pernitsky, Levi Clark and Brandan Kromm all with 2 points each. Ryan Larochelle picks up the first star in net for the Rage holding back the potent Regina offense.

The Midget home opener had KDL entertaining the Eatonia / Leader squad for an early afternoon game in the barn. With early chances, KDL seemed frustrated with an active goaltender that held back the potent offense until late in the first when Mitch Bradley finally buried one at 3 minutes left in the first from Tylo Anderson and Derek Schraefel. Eatonia would tie it up early in the second and were able to hold KDL until the third when Tyler Birn neted the go ahead goal from Tommy Ehry and Bradley at 2 minutes into the third. At the 15 minute mark of the third, Ryder Kissick would tuck one from Anderson and Schraefel to put the clincher on the opener at 3-1. Quinton Flahr picks up the win for the good guys in net.
KDL Midgets with 22 kids will rotate players out of the line up this season as only 17 skaters and 2 goalies can dress for any game. The KDL Midgets will be in Kindersley on Friday and Rosetown on Saturday on the Nov 21/22 weekend for the first road swing.
Right after the Midget game, in front of only the die hard fans willing to forgo the football game to watch a Junior game, the Rage would take the PA Ice Hawks for granted as the Capitals did with the Rage the night before. The Rage started net-minder Stallard back from a one game suspension and the club would cough up 4 unanswered goals. 10 minutes into the second they would go back to minder Larochelle.This move sparked the club to claw back to tie the game but as they had done all night, a breaking Ice Hawk forward would get behind the defense and put the game away for PA. In spite of outshooting the Ice Hawks by almost double, the Rage give up this home game as would the Roughies on the same day in Edmonton for the quarter finals. The Rage can ill afford to give up these games at home. Passing and team work beat the Capitals the night before but not playing as a team lost this one.
The Rage will do another double header home stand next weekend hosting Fort Knox Friday and the Regina Silver Foxes on Saturday.
