It was one win and a loss for the Terrace River Kings, during the Central Interior Hockey League’s (CIHL) Northern Cup Challenge exhibition games, held in Kitimat Sept. 23 – 24.

It was the Kitimat Ice Demons who took the tournament win in a decision made by points, not game wins.

The River Kings took on the Ice Demons in their first game, played on Friday night, and while the Kings opened up the scoring, it was the Demons who took the win in the end 8-4.

General manager for the team, Ray Hallock, said it was a close game up until the third period, and that for some players, it was their first time on the ice for the team.

Game two was played on Saturday and went much better for Terrace, as the River Kings beat out the Prince Rupert Rampage 8-2.

“Saturday was different as the guys were more confident, having seen Rupert play the previous night against Smithers,” Hallock said. “And we were more used to each other, and just played a better game.”

The River Kings’ first game of the regular season was held in Smithers last weekend against the Smithers Steelheads.

The weekend after that the team will face off again against the Ice Demons in Kitimat, and the first home game of the season will be another matchup with the Ice Demons at the Terrace sportsplex on Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
