The Kitchener-Waterloo Rangers hit the road again after winning two of three away from home last weekend.
The Provincial Women’s Hockey League Rangers (15-13-2-2) have clinched a playoff spot and have won five of their last six games after taking down the Whitby Jr. Wolves and Bluewater Jr. Hawks last weekend.
They opened the three-games-in-three days road trip with a 2-0 loss to the Burlington Jr. Barracudas last Friday as Laura Deller made 38 saves.
On Saturday, Hannah Davidson and Amber Sealey scored on the power play as the Rangers held off a persistent Hawks team for a 2-1 victory. Stephanie Sluys made 26 saves for the win.
Sunday in Whitby, Loren Gabel scored twice and Dollee Meigs and Samantha Squires added singles as the Rangers pulled away in the second period for a 4-1 win. Deller made 25 saves.
The Rangers are at Barrie and Mississauga before returning home for their final four regular season games starting Feb. 16 against the Southwest Wildcats.
Dutchies drop first against Waterloo
The Kitchener Dutchmen are no longer perfect against the Waterloo Siskins.
The visiting Siskins escaped Kinsmen Arena with a 5-3 victory Tuesday, their first in five games against the Dutchies this season.
John Divo, Keli Grant and Philip Moser scored for sixth-place Kitchener (23-18-4) and Waterloo native Marc Williams made 38 saves against his former club.
Keigan Goetz, Eric Cimino, Matthew Mah, Jacob Bonin and Danny Hanlon replied for third-place Waterloo (25-16-4).
The Dutchmen visit Caledonia and Waterloo this weekend before hosting the Elmira Sugar Kings Feb. 12 at Kinsmen Arena at 7 p.m.
