Rampage drop home opener in third period setback

Things were looking pretty good for Prince Rupert Rampage fans after forty minutes of play on Saturday night, the hometown side was up by one goal, holding a 4-3 lead heading into the final twenty minutes of play.

However, a strong push back from the Quesnel Kangaroos provided for three un-answered goals in the third, with the Roos streaking to the finish to take a 6-4 decision out of the Jim.

The third period proved to be a physical period of play, with Quesnel not only turning on the offence, but increasing the hit levels as well, with a number of scrums breaking out as emotions and frustrations flared.

After a scoreless first period, all of the scoring for the Rampage on the night came in the second frame, with markers from Kory Movald, Kendall Mossini, Kendal-Stace Smith and Greg Weir putting the first goals on the scoresheet for 2013-14.

The Rampage will now review how their third period mistakes opened the opportunity for Quesnel to get back into the game and put those lessons to work in preparation for their next game on the 2013-14 season.

The Rampage continue with their home stand on Saturday October 12th, as the Kitimat Ice Demons come to town for an 8 PM start.

That will be the last that the Rampage see of the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre until November, as the Rampage take to the road for the rest of October with games in Terrace and Houston.

They're back on familiar ice November 2nd when the Ice Demons make a return visit to the Jim.
