The West Central Rage have had a rocky start to their Prairie Junior Hockey League season. The team, based in Kerrobert, broke a seven game losing streak earlier this month.

Coach and General Manager, Scott Butters, said the team just had to hit their stride, "They've come together as a team, it's been nice to see and they're putting in the effort."

The West Central Rage currently sit in 5th place in their division standings with a 4-8-0 record. Butters said they are hoping to improve on that in the coming games, "You just have to keep working and that's what it comes down to, which team wants it more that night."

The Rage were able to win their last two games this month, against the Prince Albert Titans and the Saskatoon Westley's. Butters said they hope to keep that momentum going as they face one of the toughest teams in the league, the Saskatoon Quakers.

"We've played them once or twice. They're a good team, but again, if we work and play the way we should play, we can beat them." Butter said it's a real possibility for the Rage to climb the standings in the league, "We just have to work at it and we can beat any team in this league."
