Stampeders continue winning ways with win over Ice Demons

The Williams Lake Stampeders' offence erupted Saturday night in a 10-0 win over the Kitimat Ice Demons.

On the weekend before Halloween, the Williams Lake Stampeders filled their candy bags with goals in a one-sided 10-0 victory over the visiting Kitimat Ice Demons.

Taylor Stuart scored just 20 seconds into the contest on the first play of the game, and the goals just kept on pouring in.Kitimat, for its part, played with just 14 skaters and were outshot 50-16.

It was also a night where the Stampeders welcomed back longtime goaltender Willie Sellars, who earned himself a shutout in his return.

After Tyrel Lucas made it 2-0 near the midway point of the first period, Stuart added his second of what would eventually become a hat trick late in the third to put Williams Lake up 3-0 after one period.

Andrew Fisher, David Gore, Zach Sternberg, Tye Moses and Kyler Wilkinson exploed for five more goals in the second period, before Evan Fuller and Stuart closed out the scoring in the 10-0 win.

With the victory, Williams Lake remains unbeaten in the Central Interior Hockey League with a 5-0 record and sit comfortably atop the standings ahead of the Smithers Steelheads (3-2).

The Stampeders will get a chance to extend its stranglehold in the league when they travel to Terrace to face the River Kings on Friday, Nov. 11 and the Steelheads on Saturday, Nov. 12.

They then play the Quesnel Kangaroos in Quesnel on Friday, Nov. 25 before returning home to host the Prince Rupert Rampage on Saturday, Nov. 26 for a 7:30 p.m. start time at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
