    Rustlers follow 6 game win streak with 3 game losing streak

    RED DEER SENIOR RUSTLERS FALL TO 6-3 IN INAUGURAL NCHL SEASON

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers drop second and third straight games in Eckville and Morinville

    After a six-game winning streak to open their inaugural North Central Hockey League season, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers have procured a three-game losing streak after a pair of losses over the weekend to two of the league’s top teams in the Eckville Eagles and the Morinville Kings.

    In their first game in two weeks following their first bye weekend of the season, the Rustlers dropped a 3-0 decision to the Eckville Eagles on Friday night, the second straight game they were held scoreless.

    With a shortened roster on Saturday night, the Rustlers rebounded with a spirited effort in Morinville, but, after leading 2-1 for much of the game, were handed a 4-3 loss after a late game-winner by the Kings.

    “Obviously we were hoping for a better result this weekend, but as a new team, our focus is still process over outcome,” said Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “You can’t win a championship in November. We let some important points slip away this weekend, but we’re determined to learn from our mistakes and grow as a team.”

    After a bit of a flat effort on Friday night, Pess said other than the final score, there was a lot to like about the Rustlers’ game on Saturday.

    “We came out with a lot of energy and played well with a shortened bench against a very good team in Morinville,” he said. “I think if we can harness that effort and bring it every night, we’ll get back on track in no time.”

    The Senior Rustlers are off again this coming weekend, but will have their shot at redemption against the Kings on December 8 in Penhold, the team’s first home game since November 3.

    They’ll close out the 2018 portion of the season with another home game against the Eagles on December 15, and a road game in Sylvan Lake December 21 against the Pirates.
