CIHL: Unbeaten Rampage Prepare to Play River Kings

John Crawford

The Prince Rupert Rampage are now the only team in the Central Interior Hockey League this season.

The Williams Lake Stampeders suffered their first loss of the season Saturday, when they were beaten on home ice 7-5 by the Quesnel Kangaroos.

The Rampage were idle over the weekend, but are preparing for their next battle -- this weekend, they'll host the Terrace River Kings.

On Saturday in Terrace, Darren Beaulieu registered the shutout as the River Kings blanked the winless Kitimat Ice Demons 5-0..

The win improves Terrace's record to 2-and-4.
The Rampage have reeled off six straight wins to begin the season -- and their coach says the team is full of confidence.

Roger Atchison says hard work is paying off for his squad -- but he also expects a tough battle in their game against the River Kings.

"I  think near the end of the year Terrace will be a force to be reckoned with. They're just going through a little rough patch right now. But it's going to be hard to get out of the west here against them. I wouldn't take them lightly come the end of the year, that's for sure.... Obviously, because we've got a bit of a streak on the line, I think we're probably just going to try to keep it going. But for the most part we are just going to play hard and whatever happens, happens," he said.
