Raptors Squeak Past Lake Region 2-1

October 27, 2013

ORLEANS-In a very evenly played match, the Rivendell Raptors had a little more at the end than the home standing Lake Region Rangers as they held on for a 2-1 victory. The Raptors erased a 1-0 LRU lead by scoring twice in the last 13 minutes of regulation to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
With a large, several-hundred strong boisterous crowd on hand to witness the quarter-final between the number 4 seed, Lake Region and the number five seed Raptors it was obvious on this chilly 42 degree day that it would be tight one.
