Williams Lake Stampeders riding high on winning streak

Next up the home team is set to take on the Quesnel Kangaroos Dec. 10 at home

The Williams Lake Stampeders are on a winning streak, in more ways than one.

The hometown team downed their competition on a double header weekend, handing the Prince Rupert Rampage their first loss of the season with a final score of 5-3 Saturday night, Dec. 5 with Willie Sellars in net.

Capitalizing on a tired Hazelton Wolverines Sunday, who won their game against the Quesnel Kangaroos the night before, the Stamps dominated again Sunday afternoon with netminder Ryan Balbirnie.

But where the team and their volunteers really shined was through a teddy bear toss and food drive for those in need in the community.

The team’s marketing director, Kyleen Toyne, said she was moved by the generosity of fans who delivered on both teddy bears and food, including Wade and Kathy Wilfur who donated a stack of food which will be used for the team’s Christmas hamper program as well as to donate to the Salvation Army food bank.

The teddy bears were tossed onto the ice when the Stamps scored their first goal Saturday against the Prince Rupert Rampage.

Members of the WLMHA U15 Female Timberwolves team were also on hand both days, donating their time to help the Stampeders collect the donations.

In the last home game of 2022, the Stampeders will take on their rivals, the Kangaroos, Saturday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Even Santa is expected to pay a visit during the game.

You won’t want to miss it.
