    Rangers run winning streak to four

    - Advertisment -

    North defeated visiting Geneva on Saturday, 6-0, to run its winning streak to four straight matches.

    With the win, the Rangers improved to 5-4 overall.

    “We’re on a four-game win streak now with some big games coming up,” said Dom Kustura, who recorded a hat trick in the win. “The return of some key players has helped us out a bit and we have been playing really nicely these past couple games and hopefully we could bring it into our upcoming matches.”

    Kustura’s first goal was set up by a touch pass from Kaden Kocin and Kustura beat the goalie in a one-on-one situation. His second occurred when he picked up a loose ball on the win and turned the corner with a strong finish to the near post. He used his left foot on a shot from the six-yard box to score his third goal of the game.

    “They were playing a flat back four so there was lots of space in behind and my teammates were giving me lots of nice chances by playing the ball over the top,” Kustura said.

    Kocin finished the game with two goals and two assists to help the Rangers celebrate their Senior Night game with a win.

    “I think it was great for us to come out on top with a win today, especially on Senior Night,” Kocin said. “It means a lot.”

    Kocin’s first goal was set up off of a corner kick played into the box by Conner Pathko. He scored the second all on his own using a move to beat his defender and then he slotted the ball inside the near post.

    Luka Dedic also scored in the win and Ali Albasar and Jaiten Perchinske both recorded assists. Bo Vinson recorded two saves in notching his second straight clean sheet since returning from an injury.

    The Rangers put their winning streak on the line when they travel to rival South on Tuesday.

    “ I think that we just gotta’ keep working hard as a team, keeping up our team chemistry and just playing every game like it’s our last,” Kocin said of maintaining the recent success.
