The Williams Lake Stampeders exploded for double digit markers to beat the Lac La Hache Tomahawks in a 13-4 road victory.

David Gore led the way with four goals and two assists for a six-point outing, while Dylan Richardson added two goals and three assists in the lopsided affair.

After one period, following goals from Williams Lake’s Andrew Fisher and Richardson, and two from Lac La Hache’s Donovan Nicholas, both teams entered the second frame knotted up at 2-2.

There, Nicholas added his third of four tallies on the afternoon, before Jassi Sangha and Gore gave the Stampeders a 4-3 lead heading into the final frame.

In the third the Stampeders opened up the floodgates scoring nine goals including three notches from Gore, two from Nathan Zurak and Darcy Flaherty, and singles from Matt Lees and Richardson.

Nicholas potted the lone goal for the Tomahawks in the final frame.

Matt Brenner turned aside 30 of 34 shots for the Stampeders, while Willie Sellars faced a 49-shot barrage in the loss.

With the win Williams Lake improves to 11 wins and one loss on the Central Interior Hockey League campaign and are six points ahead of the Terrace River Kings (8-1) atop the CIHL standings.

The Tomahawks slipped to three wins and eight losses and are six points back of the CIHL East Division’s second-place Quesnel Kangaroos (6-5).

This Saturday, Dec. 13, when the Stampeders host the Kangaroos at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, the team will be hosting a toque, mitten and teddy bear toss and are asking fans to bring any of the previously mentioned items to throw on the ice during the first intermission.

All of the items will go to the Boys and Girls Club to distribute to children in need.

“The support and generosity of our fans has been tremendous and we know they will come through again,” said Calvin Dubray, Stampeders sponsorship and marketing director.

Also, during the second intermission the team will host a turkey shoot where 10 fans will be selected from their program ticket to shoot for a chance to win one of 10 turkeys. Any turkeys not claimed will go to the Salvation Army.

Puck drop is 7:30 p.m.
