In Williams Lake, the River Kings dominated the first part of the game, scoring three in the first period and two in the second to make the score 5-0. The Stampeders fought back to claim four goals in the third, ending the game 5-4 for the River Kings. Ryan Roseboom and Luke Walker both scored two and Brian Lomas one.

Now the boys are gearing up for their first game this Saturday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. facing the Quesnel Kangaroos for round two.
