Willow Grove â€“ Rams fans shouted for joy Sunday night as they watched the scoreboard here at Wintersport Arena.
â€œGuess tonightâ€™s attendanceâ€ the announcer sang out. â€œA: 0. B: 1 C: 2â€
The tension mounted.
â€œC,â€ said the lucky fan on bench 3 seat #8. â€œTwo.â€
â€œYes, you win and the Rams have set a new attendance record.â€ But the night wasnâ€™t all fun and games for the unprecedented showing of faithful.
The Rams spotted the Bandits 6 goals in the first period. However, the heroics of Carter Leonards and Kevin Dowell sparked a comeback. Leonards 3 goals and Dowell’s flashy new pads led the way as the Rams climbed back to within one goal in the final moments.
â€œI felt bad for Dean,â€ said Leonards later. â€œHe brought fans and we were getting spanked.â€
You, too, can see the Rams and a return showing of Dowellâ€™s new pads this Thursday at 10:40 when the Rams try to beat a second team: The Continentals.
