TERRACE River Kings pep rally tonight!

River Kings pep rally takes place in Terrace, B.C. tonight!

Central Interior Hockey League champions heading to the Coy Cup in Whitehorse

  • Mar. 24, 2017 9:00 a.m.

HOCKEY action continues tonight in Terrace with a pep rally for the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL) champion River Kings prior to the team leaving for the 2017 Coy Cup championship in Whitehorse.

Doors at the Sportsplex open at 8:15 with the rally itself starting at 8:30 p.m. in the main arena.

The Coy Cup begins in Whitehorse next week and following the pep rally a practice to follow will be the final one before the trip to Whitehorse.

Terrace mayor Carol Leclerc will be on hand as will the Terrace Pipes and Drums.

Sponsor Telus has a GoPro camera up for grabs which will go to a fan based on the number of successful shots on the net.

“We’re hoping everyone will come out and cheer the team on,” said Terrace Telus official Howard Tsang who organized the pep rally following the River Kings win over the Williams Lake Stampeders two weeks ago to clinch the CIHL title.

The River Kings have placed second in the Coy Cup, the pinnacle of senior men’s AA hockey in B.C. and the Yukon, the past four years and the team hopes this is the year they’ll triumph.

Coy Cup action begins early next week with four teams – the River Kings, a team from Kelowna, a team from Port Hardy on northern Vancouver Island and a Whitehorse team.

The Kings have played Whitehorse before but not Kelowna or Port Hardy.

The rally follows a successful Midget boys provincial hockey tournament held in Terrace which culminated in a 4-3 win March 22 by the hometown team over rivals from the Alberni Valley.
