For a second straight game the North Bay Battalion walked into a situation where they were facing a team with high playoff expectations and for the second straight game that team showed they were built for a deep run into the spring by scoring early and scoring often against the Troops. Last week it was division rivals Sudbury who took it to the Battalion, while this time around it was the Midwest Division leading Kitchener Rangers who scored three times in the first and four more times in the second en-route to a 9-2 victory over the Battalion.

The lone Battalion goals were scored by Luke Moncada (21) at 13:19 of the second period and Josh Currie (3) at 19:48 of the third period.

The Battalion head to St. Catharines for a game against the Niagara IceDogs on Saturday night.
