River Kings kick off Coy Cup with an OT win against Fort St. John

The Terrace River Kings are in Fort Nelson for the 2015 Coy Cup tournament this week

The Terrace River Kings faced off against the Fort St. John Flyers in game one of the 2015 Coy Cup in Fort Nelson.

The Terrace River Kings are 1-0 at the 2015 Coy Cup tournament in Fort Nelson heading into game two tonight.

An overtime goal by Chapen Leblond gave the Kings a 4-3 win in game one last night against the Fort St. John Flyers, both teams coming off lengthy layovers since playoffs ended.

The back-and-forth game saw Fort St. John get on the board in the first, entering the second period with a 1-0 lead and on the power play.

But the Kings fought back, with goals by Jordan Peddle and Josh Murray to put the Kings up 2-1 before the Flyers tied it up at the end of the second.

Terrace took the lead again in the third – but Fort St. John tied it up late in the period on a powerplay, forcing the game into overtime, where Leblond squeaked one past Flyers’ goalie Jared Andersen to give the Kings the win.

The Kings will now meet the Powell River Regals in a royal battle for game two tonight at 5 p.m.

The Regals fell 5-4 to the hometown Fort Nelson Yeti last night.
