West Central Rage have had an impressive season through the first few weeks of regular season action.

In the most impressive game so far, the Rage defeated the Saskatoon Quakers 6-5 to hand them their first loss of the season. The Rage have always played the Quakers in close games, and have managed to beat them before, but this win felt a little more special considering the Quakers have posted a perfect 10-0 record heading into last weekend's tilt.

Following Saturday's big win against the Quakers, the Rage hosted Fort Knox and came up short 8-4 on Sunday afternoon. Fort Knox plays in the Bill Johnston Division, and most of their competition comes against the southern end of the province.

Justin Haugen, coach of the West Central Rage, talks about how the Rage have shown improvements in all aspects of the game compared to last season already.

"Overall, we have improved in several areas. Defensive zone, neutral zone and offensive zone, we are a much-more improved team this season."

The Rage are serious about competing in the Prairie Junior Hockey League, and work hard on off-days with weekly practices, dry-land training, and coming to the rink with a winning mentality.

Already a quarter into the season, the Rage will have 13 more games until the Christmas break. It will be important for the Rage to begin separating from the other competition in the standings from now until Christmas and then continuing to be a dominant force in the new year.
