Rampage look to keep momentum strong as home date with Nechako arrives Saturday

After much of October on the road, the Prince Rupert Rampage
return to the Jim Saturday night looking to add to their 4-0 record so far

It's been a very successful start to the 2022-23 CIHL season for the Prince Rupert Rampage, the Rhinos finding success both at home and on the road, putting together a 4-0 record thus far with one more date on the calendar set for Saturday night.

The home side team is looking forward to a large and enthusiastic crowd on hand tomorrow night for their final home game of October, with the Nechako North Start in town, a mission in mind to not only bring an end to the undefeated streak of the Rampage, but perhaps to gain a bit back from a loss last week in Vanderhoof.

Last Saturday the Rhinos headed into the Nechako Valley and grabbed two points in convincing style, besting the North Stars by a score of 5-1, the victory marking the start of back to back wins for the weekend, the second half coming in a hard fought battle in Smithers on Sunday.

The Rhinos have spent a fair bit of October on the bus, so it's a welcome return to the frantic fans of the Jim on tap for Saturday night at 7 PM.

The visiting North Stars have struggled out of the gate for 2022-23 a roster violation rule costing them their only victory on the season in a match up with Smithers, that has left them with an 0-3 record on the year heading into tomorrow evening.
Players to watch for the visitors include Jim Silver, Tyrell Turgeon and Nolan Obriem the trio currently the top scorers for the North Starts.

On the Rampage side of the rink, Hunter Johnson, Jude Repole and Hunter Atchinson have had fast starts in the scoring parade for the first month of CIHL play.

The Rhinos head into the weekend at the top of the standings and offensive machine that has a league leading 23 goals and some strong defensive work that has seen but 8 opposition shots find the mark.
