Prince Rupert rout winless Kitimat

The Prince Rupert Rampage handed the Kitimat Ice Demons another loss

The Prince Rupert Rampage rolled into Kitimat short-handed and came away with the victory. The Rampage wound up beating the Ice Demons by a score of 5-2, with both teams fielding less than ideal amounts of players.

Prince Rupert head coach Roger Atchison said that despite both teams not being full strength the game was hard fought,

“Both teams had a short bench so it was a bit tough, it was a group effort on our part one of those games where you can’t be too flashy,” Atchison said.

Having fewer players is expected this time of year, said Atchison who knows he had to lean on his guys a bit more than usual.

“I thought Judd (Repole) was great tonight, because of our short bench I had to play him a lot more than I normally would. But he still had a great game,” Atchison said.

The game on the ice was not reflected on the scoreboard said Atchison, who thought both teams played hard, leading to a 1-1 tie going into the third period before the Rampage broke the game wide open.

“Both goalies were fantastic tonight, we got a couple in the third but we were tied 1-1 for most of the game. Our goalie kept us in it,” Atchison said.

The team will now look ahead to tonight’s game against Terrace. The River Kings and Rampage will clash tonight at 7 p.m.
