The Williams Lake Stampeders took three of a possible four points at home last week facing the always feisty Quesnel Kanagroos.

Friday night at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex marked the first meeting between the two clubs since last year and both clubs picked up right where they left off.

Scoring during Friday’s tilt see-sawed back and forth throughout the game, with Williams Lake’s Tyrel Lucas (2-0-2), Matt Lees (1-0-1), Brent McIsaac (1-2-3) and Jassi Sangha (2-1-3) beating Quesnel netminder Ryan Manderson in the 6-4 win with Sangha providing the game winner at 13:44 of the third period.

Providing scoring for Quesnel were Nick Tomassetti (1-1-2), Paul Girodat (1-0-1), Waylon Heureux (1-0-1) and Curtis Gassoff (1-1-2).

Williams Lake’s Justin Foote was awarded the win between the pipes stopping 30 or 34 shots in the contest. On the other end Manderson turned aside 41 of 46 shots on goal in the losing effort.

Saturday’s game, heading into the third period, was deadlocked at 4-4 with Stampeder goals coming from Francis Johnson, Tyler Fuller, David Gore and Sangha.

Quesnel, however, would send the hometown crowed home stunned to pot the game winner with 11 seconds left in the overtime frame.

With the three-point weekend Williams Lake, in five games this season, has amassed a 3-1-1 record and is in first place in the Central Interior Hockey League’s East Division with seven points. The Kangaroos occupy the second spot in the division at 2-3-0 on the campaign with the Lac La Hache Tomahawks in third place at 1-3-0.

Williams Lake heads to Quesnel this Saturday for the rubber match with the Kangaroos. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. at the Twin Ice Arenas.
