Stamps take two; extend division lead

The Williams Lake Stampeders extended their lead in the Central Interior Hockey League East Division during the weekend.

The Williams Lake Stampeders extended their lead in the Central Interior Hockey League East Division with back-to-back wins during the weekend.

Friday, the Stampeders hosted the Lac La Hache Tomahawks where the lakecity squad marched away with a 5-3 victory.

Saturday, Williams Lake travelled north to Quesnel where they downed the Kangaroos, 9-5.

After a scoreless first period Friday Williams Lake exploded for four goals in the second period from a returning Jassi Sangha and David Gore, Travis Sanderson and Kurtis Bond.

Wilfred Robbins put the Tomahawks on the board during a power play, before Sanderson added his second of the contest late in the frame to close out the period’s scoring.

In the third Robin Gilbert and Derek Walters each tallied for Lac La Hache in the 5-3 defeat.

In Quesnel, Stampeders captain Aaron Zurak (2G, 1A), Matt Stang (1G, 2A), Dylan Richardson (1G), Sangha (1G, 1A), Gore (1G, 3A), Stuart Sasges (1G, 1A), Nathan Zurak (1G) and Kyler Wilkinson (1G, 1A) all lit the lamp in the winning effort.

Williams Lake goaltender Justin Foote turned aside 40 of 45 shots in the win.

In nine games Williams Lake has amassed a seven-win, two-loss record and sits five points ahead of the second-place Kangaroos in the division.

This Saturday, when Williams Lake hosts the Prince Rupert Rampage, the team will host its toque, mitten and sock toss in support of the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake and District.

Any fan who brings an item gets a ticket for a chance to win a signed Carey Price jersey, courtesy of Caribou Ski Source for Sports, and a Stampeders prize pack. After the Stampeders score their first goal of the game, fans are asked to throw their items on the ice.

On Sunday, Williams Lake takes on the Terrace River Kings.

Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday — both at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
