Prince Rupert Rampage defeat Terrace River Kings

The Prince Rupert Rampage picked up another win on Friday night when they faced off against the Terrace River Kings in Terrace.

Terrace captain Steve Cullis opened the scoring just over halfway through the first, while Chris Kirby made it 2-0 with just 49 seconds left in the first.

In the second the Rampage responded as Bryan Tates pulled the team to within one less than three minutes in, only for Cullis to extend the Terrace lead less than a minute later. But the rest of the game would be all Rampage. With just under 13 minutes to go captain Jared Meers lessened the gap to one and with 2:41 to go Devin Palmer tied things up at three going into the final frame.

In the third period, Kory Movold scored just 16 seconds in to put the Rampage up 4-3, and that would be all the scoring in the game.

The Rampage will host the league-leading Smithers steelheads on Saturday and face the Houston Luckies on Sunday.
