Wednesday was another tough night at the rink for a pair of local junior C teams.
In Delhi, the Travellers were hoping to snap its season-long losing streak. Unfortunately for the Mid-Western Junior C Hockey League team again couldn't muster any offence during a 13-2 shellacking at the hands of the New Hamburg Firebirds.
The Firebirds scored eight unanswered goals before Austin Hentz finally got the home team on the board in the second period. Kyle Vigar scored to start the third period. Unfortunately the Firebirds bounced back with four more.
Colin Martin, Jerry Ennett and Kory Nowak scored two goals each to lead the way for the 18-7 Firebirds, while Quinten Haddock, Carter Tracey, Jerry Ennett, Matt Bedforth, Shawn Antonides, Anthony Osterling, Andrew Boer, and Jaden Goetz netted one goal each.
Mike Harrison and Patrick Tanner were pelted with 51 shots, while their teammates were only able to shoot 20 Ryan Purcell's way.
The Travellers, now 0-22, are on the road this weekend, Friday in Woodstock at 7:45 p.m., and Saturday in Paris at 7:30 p.m.
In Niagara District Junior C Hockey League action in Glanbrook, the Rangers scored three goals in the third period to get by the Simcoe Storm 5-2.
After Garnet Batrynchuk and Jeff May scored first-period goals for the Rangers, the Storm came bouncing back with goals from Tyler Nagy and Riley Wilson in the second.
But in the third period, the Rangers took over, with Josh Pace, Cole Anderson, and Noah Matteson scoring goals.
Nathen McKinnon was tagged with the loss between the Storm pipes in a 27-save effort, while Jay Payton made 26 stops to earn the win.
The 4-21-1 Storm will host the Dunnville Mudcats at Talbot gardens Sunday at 7 p.m.
