Terrace River Kings lose in Coy Cup final

Williams Lake Stampeders defeat Terrace team by score of 6-2

By Greg Sabatino

The Williams Lake Stampeders, for the second year in a row and the third time in franchise history, are Coy Cup champions.

The Stampeders defeated the Terrace River Kings 6-2 March 15 night in front of an absolutely jam-packed house at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

Williams Lake’s Nathan Zurak, who played through the tournament with a broken hand, recorded a hat trick in Saturday night’s win and was also named player of the game. Stamps’ goaltender Justin Foote held down the fort, turning aside 25 of 27 shots.

Providing the rest of the Stampeders’ scoring were defenceman Brent McIsaac, Mike Simoes and Stu Sasges.  For the River Kings assistant captain Josh Murray found the twine, before Corey Dekelvar added a single tally midway through the third.
