The Rangers, 8-2 on the season in the State B league, put the game away early, outscoring LVR 23-9 in the opening period. “The Americans play a very intense defensive game and that’s what did us in . . . their tenacious defence,” said coach Bruce Fuhr, adding the Rangers match-up zone defence frustrated the Bombers throughout the contest.”(However) I still saw some good things from our players — like the play of Kyndle (Doolan) and Jess (Carmichael) that will help us as the season progresses,” Fuhr added. The Bombers lost three consecutive games prior to the Christmas break during a tournament in Cranbrook. Co-captains Courtney Holter and Anne Marie Cain each scored 10 points while Haley Adams added 12. Senior guards Sarah Fuhr and Kyndle Doolan led the Bombers with 15 and 12 points, respectively. Jessica Carmichael had a good game for LVR coming off the bench to score four points. LVR was missing senior center Rachael Moulson, who did not make the trip south the boarder due to sickness.
