The Bucks (13-6) were back in action this past weekend against the Colorado Rampage (6-12) in Monument. Seeking to gain ground on second place in the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League, the Bucks had a great opportunity to gain another four points in the standings with a clean sweep.

On Friday, the Bucks dominated the Rampage in almost every facet of the game, with six different players scoring a goal in the 7-1 rout. Five of those seven goals came in the first two frames of the game, as the Bucks continued with their game plan by putting away beatable teams early, rather than letting them get close.

“Everyone contributed to the win,” Bucks head coach Jesse Davis said. He also credited goaltender Lincoln Riley as the big difference maker in the game. The young keeper surrendered only one goal in 45 shots against.

The second game on Saturday painted a very different picture of the Bucks. It was a humbling experience and became a prime example of what happens when a team underestimates its opponent.

The Bucks came out flat under the assumption that they were going to walk all over the Rampage for the second straight win. The Rampage had different plans, turning the tables on their foes to hand the Bucks a 6-2 loss. It was a painful dose of reality for the Bucks — and it may just have been the dose of reality they needed.

“I think everyone has a bit more focus now,” Bucks forward Austin Oyler said after the game. “We were not ready for the second game and it showed.”

The Bucks must now regroup and prepare again for a battle with former league leaders the Aspen Leafs (16-4) this upcoming weekend. The Bucks are 1-3 on the season against Aspen but have been playing much better since their last meeting at the start of the season in October. The Bucks hope the motivation from the stinging defeat to the Rampage will help them in the two-game series Dec. 11-12 in Aspen.
