Rams Vs Ft Sask Rebels

After playing two successful exhibition games (11-4 and 13-3) against the visiting Grande Prairie team last weekend Rams were ready for the season opener against the Ft Sask Rebels April 27. The Rebels took the Rams by surprise by scoring first 18:44 of the first period. The Rams countered with a goal by first year player David Phillips. The Rams then lost a little discipline and penalties became a problem. The Rams took 9 penalties the first period and gave the Rebels a great chance to capitalize. The Rebels pulled ahead 3 - 1 in the first period.

The Rams came out in the 2nd period much more focused, first year player Alex Perkins scored 2 and Cale Allen nailed a single. At the end of the 2nd the score was Rebels 5 Rams 4.

The team came out with a desire to win and Veteran John Abella capped two goals and returning player Andy Herbert nailed two. Rams ahead 8 - 7 . The excitement did not stop with less than two minutes left in the third a penalty shot was called. As the player set up against first year goalie A.J. Lissey the crowd was silent. The whisle blew and the attacker made his move, the shot was made and A.J made the great move of cutting off the angle giving the shooter nothing to shoot at. As the shot hit the pole the team and crowds cheered. Rams win 8 - 7.

This was a great game of lacosse by both teams with a very exciting ending.

Rams Vs Wizards

The Rams came out of the gates with a vengeance scoring 4 goals in the first Robert Biggar struck twice and Eric Fraser & Reese Montgomery.

The first period was strong on defense, the unit held off the Wizards and they were unable to score. Once again the team struggled with penalties in the 2nd period. The lack of focus sent eight players to the box. The Wizards took the opportunity to cap 2 goals. The only goal score in the 2nd was by Eric Fraser making the score 5- 2 at the end of the 2nd period.

The third was a draw with both teams scoring twice. For the Rams Robert Biggar got a hat trick in the game and Scott Elkow sealed the win.

Another great game of lacrosse with great plays by both teams. The season is shaping up to be very exciting and the competition will be great

The Rams are putting together a full roster this season that should see improvements over 2005.
