The rough start for the Prince Rupert Rampage continues, as four points were forfeited by the team after they were not able to get enough players for a road trip this weekend.

The Rampage were to travel to Vanderhoof to face the Omenica Ice on Saturday night and play the Houston Luckies in afternoon action on Sunday, but the team notified the league on Saturday morning that not enough players were available for the games. As a result, both Houston and Vanderhoof were awarded the two points and a post by the league indicated the Rampage would have to pay both teams $1,000 for causing the cancellation of the games.

With the forfeit, the Rampage start the season at 0-3 after losing 11-2 to the Kitimat Ice Demons in the season opener.

In other western conference action this weekend, the Ice Demons just edged out the Terrace River Kings 2-1 on Saturday, while the Hazelton Wolverines defeated the Lac La Hache Tomahawks 10-2 before falling to the Williams Lake Stampeders 8-2.

The Rampage will look to turn things around on Saturday as they host the Terrace River Kings for the home opener, with the puck dropping at eight p.m.

Look for results from that game next Wednesday.
