Stamps dominate over Kangaroos in last home game of 2017

Fans show their team spirit, coming out to cheer on team despite bone-chilling temperatures

There was certainly no shortage of team spirit at the Williams Lake Stampeders home game Saturday night.

The temperature outside the rink was nearing -25C, but inside the complex the Stamps heated things up by dominating the game against the Quesnel Kangaroos.

Five minutes into the first period the Stamps took the lead in the game 2-0 with goals by Spencer Brooks and Dan Boyle followed by Wilfred Robbins with less than a minute on the clock.

Brendan Lane scored the fourth goal halfway through the second period, with the Roos finding the back of the net twice for a score of 4-2.

The Stamps put the finishing touches on the game in the third period with goals by Brooks, Robbins and Nathan Zurak. Zurak also added two assists in the winning effort for a three-point outing.

With the win, the Stampeders improve to eight wins, three losses, one tie and one overtime loss on the campaign and sit in second place in the Central Interior Hockey League — one point back of the Terrace River Kings (8-3-1-1).

The Stamps are now set to host the Kelowna Sparta in two exhibitions in celebration of Rogers Hometown Hockey.

The first goes at 8:30 p.m. Saturday night, with game two happening Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Both games will be held at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
