The Crowsnest Pass Junior Ravens lacrosse team rebounded from a mid-season three game losing skid with big wins over teams that had beaten them. Earlier in June, the Ravens had lost 18-17 to the Olds Stingers, 17-16 to the Lethbridge Barracudas and 12-6 to the league-leading High River Heat. On June 20, the Ravens hosted the Lethbridge Barracudas at the Albert Stella Arena in Blairmore. The Ravens came out strong and built up a 6-3 lead after one period. The Ravens took advantage of Barracuda penalty problems in the second and cashed in on numerous power play opportunities to outscore the Cudas 10-2 and take an overwhelming 16-5 lead into the third period. The Ravens kept up the pressure in the third and cruised to a 22-8 final, taking revenge for their one goal loss a week earlier. Jace Bohmer kept up his phenomenal scoring pace with 13 goals in the game. Brett Tarcon and Derek Tarcon each scored a hat trick for the Ravens, while David Shortreed and Tyler Ambrosi added singles.

On June 26, the Ravens travelled to High River to take on the Heat in an epic battle. Going into the game the defense-oriented Heat had only given up 38 goals in 11 games. In addition, the Ravens’ regular netminder, Haden Houze, was not available for the contest, so the team decided to put Tyler Ambrosi – who had zero lacrosse goaltending experience – into the net. The game was evenly matched in the first period, with each team able to score five goals. In the second period, the Ravens offense opened up and were able to score nine times against the stingy Heat defense and took a 14-11 lead into the third period. The Heat ran into penalty issues in the third and the Ravens notched four power play markers and rolled on to a 23-17 final. Jace Bohmer scored nine times to up his astonishing total to 84 goals on the season. Derek Tarcon had an outstanding game offensively, putting the ball in the net seven times. Brett Tarcon scored three times, David Shortreed scored twice and Midget call-up Shawn Flannery netted one goal. Tyler Ambrosi, despite giving up 17 goals, was very solid in the Raven net keeping the team in the game with great saves on several occasions.
Coach Joey Ambrosi was very happy with the team’s effort and the results from the two games. He noted that “after losses, it is always great for team morale to come back and beat the team that beat you. The High River game was one for the ages. They had only given up 38 goals in 11 games and we burned them for 23 in one game. It was fantastic. We play them again in two weeks, just before heading off to Provincials, so that will be a real test as I’m sure they weren’t too happy with the result.” Next home action for the 9 win/3 loss Junior Ravens is Friday, July 4th at 9:00 pm at the Albert Stella Arena in Blairmore against the Calgary Wranglers. On July 11th at 9:00 pm at the Stella the Ravens host the High River Heat and on Sunday, July 13th the Ravens finish off their regular season with a home test against the Medicine Hat Sun Devils at 2:00 pm.
