Stamps continue to roll

The Williams Lake Stampeders scored 18 goals in two winning outings during the weekend to improve to a league-leading 9-0.

The Williams Lake Stampeders scored 18 goals in two winning outings during the weekend to improve to a league-leading nine wins and no losses on its Central Interior Hockey League campaign.

On Saturday night, while election votes were being counted, Stampeders players did some tallying of their own in a 9-5 victory over their southern rivals, the Lac La Hache Tomahawks.

The following day Williams Lake skated circles around a slumping Kitimat Ice Demons squad with a 9-1 drubbing.

Goaltender Matt Brenner picked up the win for the Stampeders on Saturday in his second start of the season, while Andrew Fisher notched five points (2-3-5) to lead all scorers. Nathan Zurak (2-1-3), Matt Lees (2-0-2), Chad Wilde (1-0-1), Dylan Richardson (1-0-1) and Jassi Sangha (1-1-2) also scored for the Stamps.

For Lac La Hache Willie Sellars faced 39 shots in the loss with Jordan Sellars (1-0-1), Wilfred Robbins (1-0-1), Francis Johnson (1-1-2), Brad Crump (1-0-1) and Drew Rose (1-0-1) tallying.

On Sunday versus the Ice Demons the Stampeders spread the scoring around as eight different players including Nathan (1-2-3), Aaron Zurak (1-1-2), Lees (1-2-3), Stu Sasges (1-0-1), Richardson (1-2-3), Sangha (2-0-2), Cody Lockwood (1-1-2) and David Gore (1-0-1) lit the lamp, while Justin Foote picked up his sixth win of the season for the team.

Jordan Gonclaves notched the lone marker for the Ice Demons on a power play in the third period.

With the loss Kitimat slips to 1-6-1 on the season and is last in the CIHL’s west division.

The Tomahawks, meanwhile, have two wins and four losses and are six points back of the Quesnel Kangaroos — who also beat the Ice Demons Saturday, 6-2 — for second place in the east division.

Next up for the Stampeders is the west division’s first-place Terrace River Kings (5-1-0). Puck drop is Saturday, Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
