Gloucester Rangers keep playoff hopes alive with huge win over Cornwall
By Fred Sherwin
Orléans Online

The Gloucester Rangers season will come down to one game against the Kanata Stallions on Tuesday night after they demolished the Cornwall Colts on Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Rangers spotted the Colts a 2-0 first period lead before exploding for seven unanswered goals in the second to take a five goal lead. They scored two more early in the third to go up 9-2, before giving up a pair of late goals for a 9-4 final

With the two points they picked up for the win, the Rangers are now masters of their own destiny. They are currently one point up on the Kanata Stallions, who they play on Tuesday night, and a point back of the Colts who they need to catch in order to avoid a first round match-up against the Pembroke Lumber Kings.

A win or tie against the Stallions would assure them of at least eighth place. Should they win and Cornwall ends up losing to the Ottawa Jr. Senators on Thursday, the Rangers would leapfrog past the Colts into seventh place.

If they lose to the Stallions, the Rangers could still make the playoffs with a win over the Brockville Braves who they play in the final regular season game for both teams on Friday night. A loss to both the Stallions and the Braves would leave them on the outside looking in.

In Sunday's win over the Colts, the Rangers were paced by Andrew Creppin, Brandon Edge and Nick Vidoni who had two goals apiece. Corey Durocher, Corey Frizell and Taylor York also scored for the Rangers who had their second most productive game of the season. They scored 12 against Kanata on Nov. 16 and eight against Hawkesbury on Feb. 13.
