Rampage season ended by Terrace

The Rupert Rampage were eliminated from the playoffs after a 5-2 loss to the Terrace River Kings on Saturday night.

The Rupert Rampage were eliminated from the playoffs, thus ending their season after a 5-2 loss to the Terrace River Kings on Saturday night.

Terrace moves on to the Central Interior Hockey League finals against Williams Lake.

The game came at a bad time for the Rampage, after the team was missing three key players — Tyler Halliday with a shoulder injury, and Jared Meers and Kory Movold due to suspension after a fight took place in the first game against Terrace.

Rampage coach Roger Atchison was also suspended for the game.

Despite being down three important players, Jared Davis said the team played well, even outplaying the River Kings for much of the game, but didn’t get the breaks.

“It was a pretty close game until late in the third period. I’d say we outplayed Terrace every single period. They just got some lucky bounces. All in all, we put in a really good effort, it just wasn’t our day,” he said.

Davis said goaltender Devin Gerritts made some amazing saves, keeping things close in the game.

The goals for the Rampage were scored by Tom Robinson and Josh Cook.

That loss wraps up what has been one of the more successful seasons in Rampage history, as the team advanced to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since the 2010-11 season.
