Atom Select Gryphons Outmuscled by Kitchener Rangers
Submitted By Michael Thomson on Wednesday, December 20, 2017

The Atom Select Gryphons hosted the Kitchener Rangers on Tuesday night at Centennial Arena and the Rangers did not play the role of the polite guests.  The Rangers struck early and often with the final score being 10-0 in favor of the Kitchener team.  While the home team never gave up and worked hard, the visiting Rangers used their size, speed and skill to defeat the Gryphons. The Rangers battled hard for the majority of the pucks and capitalized on their chances, despite several great saves from the Gryphon netminders Eyers and Kurt. The Gryphons look forward to a rematch in the new year.  

Our last game before the Christmas break is this Saturday in Waterloo, where the Gryphons will face off against the Wolves, in an effort to bounce back and head off into the holidays on a high note.
