The Terrace River Kings conquered the Prince Rupert Rampage in a solid 7-2 game at home last Saturday.

The team now stands at second place in the CIHL with a 6-2-2 record and 14 points, only four points behind Williams Lake Stampeders who are at 18 points.

The River Kinds landed two goals in the first period, scored by Travis Bannister and Corbin Legros.

The second period was packed with action, with a total of six goals scored.

Kenny Nordstrom fired one into the net just off the faceoff to put the River Kings at a 3-0 lead.

The Rampage responded three minutes later with a goal of their own, but then River King’s captain Steve Cullis chalked up another one for the River Kings.

Then, still in the first half of the second period, Terrace’s Luke Walker buried a fifth.

A back and forth battle waged for most of the rest of the second period, with the score at 5-1 for the Kings.

Then with only three minutes left in the period, the Rampage scored their second of the night, putting it at 5-2.

But the River Kings weren’t done.

Luke Walker stirred up the cheers by slamming one more into the net to end the second period 6-2.

As the third period launched, William Orrey topped off the score with one more.

Teams played hard in the rest of the third, but the defence warded off attacks and the game ended 7-2.

The River Kings have one more game before a holiday break, facing off against the Ice Demons in Kitimat Dec. 10.
