must be in by now ??? or what?? wheres the party guys where is the party???
and nobody went home too disappointed, as far as I could see...'cept maybe Rampage 3000, who guaranteed a win on opening night for Prince Rupert.

But it just wasn't to be, as Demons prevailed in the third for a 4-2 win.

Quite different from the two games in Kitimat. Demons missing Mildenberger, Hewitson, Bossence, Wakita which called for shuffled lines across the board. The Rampage wanted to impress their fans, and truth to tell they did, with some pretty hard hitting and more good goatending from Keith Movald. Shots in the game were 28-16 in favour of the Demons; and penalty minutes, 23 mins Demons, 17 minutes the Rampage.

Kitimat seemed a bit off their usual game, but credit to the Rampage who pushed back and checked hard.

There was no scoring until the 13th minute of the first when Greg Sabey scored to give Demons a lead (Doug Wilson, Nick Smeader)and it
looked like that would stay that way into the second, but Dan Wright forechecking stole a puck off a Demons stick at the blue line ans allowed in alone to put a low one under Brett Vilness, with 1.10 left in the period

Kitimat went ahead again on a point shot from Doug Wilson set up by Mike Fisk
off a faceoff.Darrell Stacesmith got that one back with assists to Travis Holland and Dustin Lorette, with six seconds left in a two man advantage for the Rampage.

Blaine Markwart got what turned out to be the game winning goal on the power play for Kitimat with only .36 second left in the second period. The game was the first for Markwart, one of Demons' perennial leading goal scorers, since the 2006-07 season. He had a knee operation last summer and missed the entire season. Welcome back to Blaine, who played cautiously but gave the knee a good test. Terry Whelan and Greg Sabey assisted.

In the third period the insurance goal was scored on a one-timer by Terry Whelan, set up in the right circle by Greg Sabey. A second assist went to Nick Smeader.

The game also featured a scrap between Adam (Ian's son) Buick and Dan Wright
which I have to give to Adam on lots of points.

If I can make one comment, the Rampage will need to focus more on passes and shots and less on running guys on the boards, but This was a fun game, very rough and these Rampage players will -- I repeat -- win some games this season, if they continue to improve and play hockey.

Brent Andrew refereed.

Hey there........just wondering about the refs. Are the guys working these games the same young fella's who work BCHL (Quesnel & Prince George etc?) or are they some older but qualified officials who have been around quite awile?

eddy, to answer your question the refs are generally local guys who have the qualification (on paper) to ref senior hockey. There are afew guys who officiate the BCHL/WHL, but those guys are usually only brought in to Vanderhoof and Houston. The expense of paying for these guys to go any further is just to much for most teams when they can find guys in thier back yard. Kitimat did bring them in for the finals last year though. I find the biggest difference between the local guy and the more experienced guy is the communication with the players.
Go Stamps Go!
