Terrace River Kings took another tight overtime loss last weekend against the Williams Lake Stampeders.

They played a hard game, which was tied 4-4 at the end of the third period, and ended with a Williams Lake goal just three minutes into overtime.

Williams Lake scored the first goal 12 minutes into the first prod, but the River Kings responded with a goal of their own two minutes later, scored by team captain Steve Cullis and assisted by Luke Gordon.

Williams Lake landed one more in the back of the net by the end of the first, and halfway through the second period, landed another one to make it 3-1.

But the River Kings made a powerful pushback in the third period, scoring three goals in a row, scattered over the first 14 minutes.

Cory Dekelver scored one, and Steve Cullis scored two more to earn himself a hat-trick.

That earned the River Kings the lead at 4-3, with only six minutes left on the ice.

Players battled hard, but with just over a minute and a half left, Williams Lake managed to land another goal, tying the game at 4-4.

Overtime was quick, ending in three short minutes when Andrew Fisher from Williams Lake landed a final goal.
