River Kings in tough spot at Coy Cup, as Senior Men's Championship heads into Day Three

Four Senior Men's teams are in Williams Lake
this week competing for the Coy Cup

The CIHL champs may be on the verge of being on the ropes at the Coy Cup Championship taking place in Williams Lake this week, with the Terrace River Kings having suffered to first round defeats in the first two days of the four day tournament.

Four teams are in the hunt for the Senior Men's Provincial Championship in the Cariboo city, with the host Stampeders, Kelowna Sparta and Dawson Creek Canucks rounding out the Group of Four that qualified for this years finale to the hockey season, with the River Kings on hand thanks to their CIHL Crown.

The River Kings who claimed the CIHL championship last month, might have accumulated a bit of rust in the near six weeks between games, with the River Kings suffering the largest gap between Goals For and Against in action so far.

Terrace dropped their first game of the tourney on Tuesday, a 6-5 loss to the host Stampeders, with Wednesday's outcome not quite as close a contest with the Kelowna Spartan taking charge on the night with a 7-3 victory. 

The River Kings will wrap up the Round Robin portion of the week with a match up against the Canucks this evening at 5 PM.

The Semi Finals and Finals run through Friday and Saturday.

Some of the early games have been streamed through the Stampeders Facebook page, bringing the Coy Cup action to fans in the four communities and others with an interest in Senior Men's hockey.
