Rampage Review Week Eleven

A weekend sweep for the Prince Rupert Rampage pushed them to the top of the CIHL standings as Prince Rupert travelled to the Hazeltons to take both games of a weekend double header from the Wolverines.

The Rampage found the net frequently on Saturday night besting the Wolverines by a score of 10-4, a first period barrage of shots provided for a 6-1 lead, with three more goals added in the second and final one in the third to bring game one to an end.

Rob Miller accounted for three of the ten,  as did Chris Woodrow, Stephen Lawrence counted two markers on the night, while singles wen to Derek Baker and Jared Meers who opened the scoring a minute and a half into the game.

Keith Movold faced 30 shots in the Prince Rupert nets, turning aside all but four of the Wolverine attempts, Cody Smith faced the Rupert attack on the evening, facing 45 shots by the time the final horn went to bring Saturday night to an end.

Sunday's match didn't quite get off to the same fast start for Rupert, but the result at the end of the game was much the same as Prince Rupert prepared for the trip home with a 7-2 victory on Sunday afternoon at the Hazelton arena.

Chris Woodrow picked up the only goal of the first period midway through the opening frame. The first of Stephen Lawrence's three goals on the game started off the second before the first minute was up he picked up the second one with less than five minutes to go in the second period. Derek Baker and Jonathon Hunt also found the back of the net in the second.

Lawrences' third goal of the game came close to the midway mark of the third, while Johnathon Hunt scored his second of the game and the final goal on the afternoon for the Rampage at 16:59 of the third.

Warren Hanson had the start for the Rampage in game two gaining the win on 28 saves from 30 Wolverine shots.  Cody Smith once again faced the wave of Rampage players coming across the Wolverine blue line, making 38 saves on 45 shots.

With the twin wins on the road, the Rampage once again hold space at the top of the standings, that after the Terrace River Kings dropped both games of their weekend double header to the Houston Luckies, while the Kitimat Ice Demons were idle in weekend play.
