Rampage gain split in weekend play

The Prince Rupert Rampage picked up their first win of the 2012-13 CIHL season on Friday night as the Rampage topped the Terrace River Kings with a 5-4 shoot out decision at the Terrace Sportsplex.

The Rampage battled back from a 2-0 deficit in the Friday night game, with two regulation time goals from Kory Movald and single markers from Justin Fontaine  and Josh Kierce bringing the Rampage even after sixty minutes.

In the Overtime session, the Rampage relied on Kory Movald and Jared Meers to secure their first win of the season. Keano Wilson gained the Win for the Rampage in the nets facing 34 shots on the night and holding off the River Kings in the Shoot Out.

Saturday provided for another close game for the Rampage, but the trip into Kitimat did not work out quite as well for the visiting squad, though it did take a shoot out for the home Ice Demons to claim the  3-2 victory.

First period goals from Josh Kierce and Kory Movald gave the Rampage the lead heading into the third period, the Ice Demons however pulled even early on in the third period and from the there the two teams battled to a draw leading to the second shoot out session of the weekend for the Rampage.

The shoot out session went four deep with Kory Movald picking up the only marker for the Ramapge, Kitimat claimed victory on their fourth shot of the shoot out, puttng the winning goal behind Keano Wilson.

Wilson made 21 save on 23 shots in regulation time as the game played out, marking the end of the team's month long extended road trip.

The weekend split moves the Rampage into a second place tie with the River Kings in the Western Division.

The Rampage have the week off and next  return to action with their home ice debut on November 10th, when the Kitimat Ice Demons mark the first game of the year at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.
