Stampeders defeat Kangaroos in 70-minute heavy penalty game

There was heat on the ice last Saturday when the Williams Lake Stampeders played the Quesnel Kangaroos.

There was heat on the ice last Saturday when the Williams Lake Stampeders played the Quesnel Kangaroos at the Cariboo Memorial Complex, with a final 7-4 score for Williams Lake.

“Rivalry between the Stampeders and the Kangaroos gets a little intense,” said Stampeders general manager Kelly Kohen. “We got sucked into their style of play.”

Players on the two teams spent a total of 70 minutes in the penalty boxes—a result of referee calls of unsportsmanlike conduct, tripping, roughing, goalie interference, holding and fighting.

It was a strong first period for the Stampeders – in the first five minutes Nathan Zurak scored a goal with assists by Aaron Zurak and Dylan Richardson and Stuart Sasges scored with assists by Jassi Sangha and Tyler Fuller.

Matt Lees scored a powerplay goal with assists by Dylan Richardson and Nathan Zurak, and Tyler Fuller scored with assists by Jassi Sangha and Stuart Sasges. A final goal in the first period was scored by Jassi Sangha with assists by Tyler Fuller and David Gore.

The Kangaroos came from ‘down under’ in the second period to score all four of their goals, with Joel Boyetchko scoring in just over one minute of period play time.

Andrew Fisher retaliated with the Stampeders’ sole goal for that period, with assists by David Gore and Stuart Sasges.

In the third period David Gore scored an empty net goal with an assist by Andrew Fisher.

The Kangaroos spent a total of 26 minutes on 12 infractions in the penalty box and the Stampeders spent 44 minutes on 17.

The Stampeders play again on Friday, Nov. 16 against the Lac La Hache Tomahawks.
