The Stamps held a fun-filled charity game over the holidays, with fan favourites such as Tyrel Lucas and Francis Johnson Jr. taking to the ice.

The friendly match-up took place Friday, Dec. 29 and was a fundraiser for the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre.

The Alumni dominated the first period before the Stamps came alive in the second.

In the end the game was decided in overtime, with the Alumni taking the win 7-6.

The Stamps got back to business in the New Year, but it wasn’t the start to 2019 the team or fans were hoping for.

The Central Interior Hockey League senior men’s AA squad fell 3-2 to their northern rivals, the Quesnel Kangaroos, Saturday in the lakecity.

The win gives the Kangaroos (8-2-0-2) a two-point lead over the Stamps (8-4-0-0) in the CIHL standings with just under a month left in the regular season. The win also gives Quesnel the edge in the season series, 4-3, over the Stamps.

Williams Lake will play its final two home games of the regular season this Saturday and Sunday, when they host the Kitimat Ice Demons and the Terrace River Kings.
