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.

However, Graham Laursen put the Ice on the scoreboard with a goal, assisted by Justin Alessandrina and David Gordin, with less than five minutes on the clock – sending the two teams into the second period with 2-1 for Terrace on the scoreboard.

The second period saw scoring back and forth between the two teams, with the Kings managing to maintain their lead by the end of the period.

Tyrell Turgeon, assisted by Dustin Erickson and Phillip Simoes, started the scoring off for the Ice before the first minute mark.

He was answered back by River King Josh Murray, who scored at just past the 11 minute mark assisted by Rajan Sangha and 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.

Shots on goal for the two teams was 30 for the Ominica Ice, and 26 for the River Kings.

This will be the Kings last home game for a couple of weeks.
