The Prince Rupert Rampage lost its second game of the Coy Cup Tournament last night.

 

The Kitimat Ice Demons edged the Rampage in a score of 3-2 during last night’s second game.

 

The Ice Demons started the scoring 5:09 into the first period, with Daniel Mayer slipping the puck past Rampage netminder Keith Movold. The assist went to Doug Higginson.

 

The Rampage came back less than half a minute later with a goal scored by Brett Stava, assisted by Robin Gomez and J.T. Ward.

 

The Demons took the lead after the first intermission, taking the only goal in the second period. Blaine Markwart found the back of the net at 13:32 after a pass from Jeff Baker.

 

The Demons took another goal in the third period during a power play to clinch the win. Assisted by David Venman and Higginson, Jeff Mildenberger put one into the net for the Demons’ second win of the tournament.

 

The Rampage battled back with a goal from Gomez 12:55 into the period, but the team was unable to slip another one past Demons netminder Brett Vilness for the tie. Assists for Gomez’ goal went to Colt Stava and Brett Stava.

 

After a disappointing loss Tuesday night, the Williams Lake Stampeders came back with a win over the Powell River Regals during the first game last night. The Stampeders managed to slip four goals past Regals’ netminder Rene Holmgren, while the Regals could only get one past Stampeder netminder Justin Foote.

 

The Regals started out the scoring 7:52 into the first period. Jordy Smith took the team’s only goal of the night, assisted by Keegan Young and Tyson Boucher.

 

The Stampeders answered with a goal soon after. Curtis Gassoff fed the puck to Jeff Gagnon, who scored 8:04 into the game.

 

The Stampeders pulled ahead in the second period, with Wilf Robbins finding the back of the net at 13:02. Assists went to Francis Johnson and Robin Gilbert.

 

The team went on to score two more in the third period to ensure the win, with Glen Camille taking the first of those goals 8:17 into the third. Assists went to Matt Lees and Gilbert Robbins. Gilbert, assisted by Phil Simoes and Lees, scored with only 2:07 left in the game.

 

Games begin again tonight at 5 p.m. at the civic centre. Kitimat will try to keep its undefeated status against Powell River in the first game of the night, while Prince Rupert faces off against Williams Lake at 8 p.m.
