Ravens in tough against league leaders

After a successful Burger Night Fundraiser on Thursday, the Saratoga Ventures Jr B Ravens had their second weekend in a row on the road

After a successful Burger Night Fundraiser on Thursday, the Saratoga Ventures Jr B Ravens had their second weekend in a row on the road.

This time they faced off against the first place Cowichan team in their home barn, traditionally known as the “big stick.” Although everyone knew this could be a tough match with Cowichan at 7-0 in the season standings, the “big stick” had mostly Ravens fans who made the road trip to cheer on the boys.

It was a hard-fought game from the start. Hayden Smith would get four goals throughout the game, finding the corners with assists from Thomas Marks, Brayden Howes and Eddy Lawson.  Lawson would get a goal of his own with a pass from Smith, and Blair Freer would also score on a pass from Matt Lund.

Although the Ravens tied up the game a couple of times and the defensive end worked hard to push players out of the scoring zone, they would have a tough break with penalities and played a lot of the game short handed.

In the third period the Cowichan goalie would save all 13 shots on net while Cowichan would score three unanswered goals in the same timeframe. The game would end 11-6 for Cowichan.

After two weekends on the road, the Jr B Ravens will regroup and hope for some points this coming weekend when they take on both Nanaimo and Vic Esquimalt, the two teams the Ravens have been able to defeat so far this season.  The boys will play a double header with a road trip to Nanaimo on Saturday and a home game on Father’s Day at Rod Brind’Amour Arena, both scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start.

Come early and cheer loud for the Jr Ravens on Sunday, June 19.  Tickets are $3 and minor Ravens players get in free wearing their jersey.
