Renegades wrap up inaugural season

The New Mexico Renegades wrapped up their inaugural season this weekend.

New Mexico's Junior club traveled to El Paso to face the division leading El Paso Rhinos.  New Mexico lost its final three games on the road.  The club faced the Rhinos without goaltender Colton Ishmael.  Ishmael, who faced an incredible 1,433 shots on goal in his tenure with the Renegades, was called up to play for the Motor City Metal Jackets of the North American Hockey League (NAHL).

New Mexico fell to the Rhinos in all three games.  The scoring last weekend seemed to be all Rhinos all the time.  El Paso trounced New Mexico by a score of 15-1 on Friday night and followed up with two more impressive wins - a 6-1 victory on Saturday night and a 13-0 victory on Sunday afternoon.

El Paso sits atop the Midwestern Division standings with an overall record of 47-5-0-0 and will likely go deep in the WSHL playoffs.  New Mexico, eliminated from playoff contention several weeks ago, finishes their inaugural season with a record of 8-43-0-1.
