River Kings take 3-4 loss to Quesnel

It was a close game, with the Terrace team pulling their goalie for a final attempt

The Terrace River Kings took a 3-4 loss to the Quesnel Kangaroos at home Saturday, Oct. 7.

The game was tied 1-1 after the first period, with Colten Braid snagging the first goal.

Two minutes into the second, Luke Walker took a pass from Ben Reinbolt in front of the net and shovelled it in top shelf.

That made it 2-1 for the River Kings, but Quesnel followed three minutes later with a goal of their own, and then buried one more before the period wrapped up.

The third period saw the River Kings even up the score early on.

Luke Walker and Austin Turner swept up the ice with the puck, firing a pass back to Austin Legros who nailed a shot from the middle.

The game was tied 3-3 for most of the third, but the Kangaroos took the lead at six minutes.

With an empty net for the last minute, the River Kings battled for that final goal, but were unable to snag it in the end.

Quesnel took the game 4-3.

It was the first home game for the River Kings this season, putting them at 2-1 in the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL) after two wins on the road.

The team’s next game is at home against the Williams Lake Stampeders Oct. 21.
