CIHL FINALS: River Kings Win Game One in Overtime


The Terrace River Kings have won the opening game of the Central Interior Hockey League finals -- and they did it in thrilling fashion.

Ben Reinbolt scored at 2:54 of overtime -- completing his hat-trick -- as the River Kings edged the Williams Lake Stampeders 6-5 Saturday night in the Cariboo.

The River Kings scored the game's first four goals and were leading 5-1 late in the second period, but the Stampeders fought back and managed to tie it with just over a minute left, forcing the extra period.

Game two -- and if necessary Game Three -- will be this coming weekend at the Terrace Sportsplex.
