The Steamboat Wranglers Junior Hockey Club won the regular season of the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League Sunday, at Howelsen Ice Arena. The Wranglers finished number one in the league, after sweeping a three-game series with the Colorado Thunderbirds over the weekend. Final score of the three games was 9-1, 5-1, and 7-6, with the last game ending in sudden death overtime. Joel Rothman scored the winning goal in that last game, ending it with three points for the hat trick.
“We started off with high energy, good tempo. Hit the puck deep and go hard. And then third period, we just let up let ‘em crawl back in but good hustle all around for the boys and glad we could clinch this one in OT right there,” said Rothman.
The Wranglers now go to the championships as the number one seed in the RMJHL next weekend in Pueblo.
