One of the most entertaining hockey games I've been to in some time, (and that includes both Senior and Junior). Quesnel walks away with two points and an 8-4 victory.

The game featured some real good spirit on both the ice and in the stands as close to 600 fans watched the game, many making the trip down from Quesnel. Both sides tried to out do each other with the cheers. Lots of hits, some fignts, some great saves, (especially from the Quesnel goalie), and of scoring.

Quesnel Scorers:
Paul Girodat with the hat-trick, Curtis Gassoff with a pair, Nick Tomasetti, Waylon L'Heureux and Ribgy Burgart with singles.

Williams Lake Scorers: Wilfred Robbins, Francis Johnson, Brent McIsaac and Bill McGinnis all with singles.

Ryan Manderson faced shots to secure the win. Justin Foote faced 48 shots in the Stampeder net.

Maybe a bit of a shock to see Quesnel walk into Williams Lake and take the two points, but this Quesnel team is for real. A very well coached team that plays hockey well on both the defencive and offencive sides of the ice. 6 of Quesnels goals came from players that played for the Stampeders last season.

I'm sure Rusty will give his usual very good game recap here later when he gets back to PG

Speaking of shocking games.....what happend to Kitimat tonight? and congrats to Prince Rupert. Everybogy had just about written off the Rampage.

I wouldn't say it was a shock to see us walk into WL and take 2 points, I think it's time this board started giving us some credit. We work hard everytime we step on the ice and we will continue to work hard, cause that's ROO hockey.

Was definitely an entertaining game for the fans with a fight in every period, lots of scoring, some intense scrums, big hits and big saves aswell as a good atmosphere created by the fans from both teams.

The first period was really all Kangaroos. The Stamps were clearly unprepared for what they were about to face in a team that forechecked hard, finished it's checks and battled hard relentlessly. Coming off a a 20-4 rec league game against Hazelton and a couple other big blowouts the Stamps were not ready to battle and their bad habits showed. Quesnel came out hacking and whacking and playing really chippy hockey and dragged the Stamps out of their comfort zone and right into Quesnel's kinda game and it cost Williams Lake as they were retaliated all game long. The Roos took a 4-2 lead into the dressing room after one. Paul Girodat stole the show against his old team scoring a couple. Roos out shot the Stamps 18-9. One fight in the first as Jason Wright got a decision against a Kangaroo defenceman who through a big head shot with no puck in the area.

In the second the Roos struck quickly on a lucky break when a dump in hit the linesman in the head perfectly setting up a 2 on 1 and a nice finish made it 5-2 in the first minute. Shortly after a heated scrum led to one fight between Dino Lecomte and a Roos player aswelll as other activities with Harley Gilks getting tossed for jumping Brent McIsaac and the stamps ended up with a 2 minute power play. McIsaac would score on the power play and Bill McGinnis would add another shortly after to get the game back within reach at 5-4. From that point on the Stamps poured it on but a few posts and crossbars and a couple great saves by Manderson helped the Roos maintain their lead before Girodat extended it with his hat trick goal on a rebound in the crease sending the Roos to the dressing room with a 6-4 lead.

In the third the game seemed to settle down with Quesnel not generating anything, but playing a solid shut down period and when the Stamps were able to generate a quality chance Manderson was there to make the big save. Quesnel would make it 7-4 late on another goal created by Girodat (not sure who he set up) and as the game degenerated a bit after every whistle with the Stamps obviously frustrated the Roos would add another on a 5 on 3 to end the game with an 8-4 win. One fight in the third between McIsaac and Rigby Burgart.

Like it was said earlier in this thread, this Quesnel team is for real and you better be willing to earn your points against them, because they will make you work for it. On paper this game should have been 8-4 stamps, but on the ice the Roos play with a lot of passion and never stop working and they were full credit for there win saturday night. This is going to be a great rivalry going forward.

Go Stamps Go!

Thank you rusty, just one correction though Mcisac had Gilks in a head lock and ripped Gilks helmet off, when Mcisac was challenged by Gilks Mcisac turtled.

Word it however you want, but what was obvious was that Gilks was challenging McIsaac, who clearly wasn't going to fight 5 minutes into the 2nd period and Gilks dropped his gloves anyway and started swinging at a player with his gloves on who had no intention to fight at that point in the game. McIsaac covered up and Gilks kept swinging... I call that jumping.
Go Stamps Go!
