The Kitimat Ice Demons would beat the Quesnel Kangaroos in the Demons' second game in the Coy Cup championship.

Ice Demons win again in second night of Coy Cup action

The Terrace River Kings were edged 5-4 by the Williams Lake Stampeders while the Ice Demons took the Quesnel Kangaroos 8-3.

Day two round robin matches at the Coy Cup Senior Men’s AA provincial hockey championships saw the Terrace River Kings edged 5-4 in the third period of a hard-skating chippy game, by CIHL playoff finalists the Williams Lake Stampeders. The game was tied for most of the play at 3-3 and 4-4 before the Stampeders picked up the go-ahead goal seven minutes into the third and then hung on for the ride the rest of the period.

In the second game, the Kitimat Ice Demons were caught early by a short-handed giveaway unassisted goal by Quesnel sniper Paul Girodat but fought back to tie and take the lead before the end of the first period. These goals came from Terry Whelan (Jeff Mildenberger, Derek Wakita) and on a late deflection at 19:15 in the period by Brandon Wakita, off a Jeff Baker shot.

Although the Kangaroos, playing much better and more penalty-free hockey, scrambled back into a 2-2 tie in the second, the Demons quickly asserted themselves and went ahead to a 6-3 lead by the end of the second and added two more in the third for a convincing win.
