TERRACE –  The Terrace River Kings grabbed their second win of the season, and the first victory on home ice, with a 6-3 score over the Omineca Ice Oct. 22.

The Kings started off  strong, with Jeremy Van Den Broek scoring unassisted before the five minute mark. Nathan Soucie was next, scoring at just past the eight minute mark, assisted by Tristan Murray and Corbin Legro.

Four minutes later  Erickson, assisted by Kyle Weber, tied things up for Omineca bringing the score to 3-3.

Next, an unassisted goal by Soucie put the Kings back on top, bringing the score to 4 -3.

With no scoring for the first 10 minutes of the third, the Kings increased their hold, when Rajan Sangha, assisted by David Tooms and Cameron Kerr, scored at just past the 11 minute mark. He was followed by Calen Findlay, assisted by Derrick Jurista and Steve Cullis, who grabbed the final goal for the Kings a minute later, resulting in a 6 – 3 win for Terrace.
