The Terrace River Kings chalked up another win last weekend in Kitimat, wrapping 2016 up with a six game winning streak.

Brett Downie closes in on the Ice Demon net in the most recent River King win in Kitimat Dec. 10.

They’ve done it again.

The Terrace River Kings chalked up another win last weekend in Kitimat, wrapping 2016 up with a six game winning streak.

Still in second place with 16 points, the River Kings are narrowing in on Williams Lake Stampeders with 18 points and the same number of games played.

Last Saturday’s game in Kitimat was high action right off the face off.

Kitimat scored just 14 seconds into the game, but also took a penalty.

The River Kings seized the opportunity and Steve Cullis fired a shot into the net to tie up the game 1-1.

Midway through the period, William Orrey managed to score another goal, and the period ended 2-1 for the River Kings.

Second period again started high action, and Cullis landed his second goal just over two minutes in.

This time it was the Ice Demons who responded, scoring one of their own just 30 seconds later.

Ben Reinbolt landed one more five minutes later, and Cullis topped off the period with his third goal in the last 30 seconds.

The third period saw no goals scored, and the game ended 5-2 for the River Kings, with Cullis boasting a hat trick.

The game was the last for the River Kings in 2016, and the annual “Skate with River Kings” is Dec. 20 from 6:15 to 7:45. Admission by donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

The River Kings will hit the ice in the new year on Jan. 7 here in Terrace, playing against the Smithers Steelheads.
