The Kitimat Ice Demons capped their 2011 CIHL play-off championships by being edged by one goal in a 7-6 game three goal-fest at Williams Lake Sunday afternoon.

The Kitimat Ice Demons capped their 2011 CIHL play-off championships by being edged by one goal in a 7-6 game three goal-fest at Williams Lake Sunday afternoon.

The Stampeders earned their second CIHL championship in succession (over the Ice Demons) as they surged back fro m a 6-3 deficit at the 12 minute mark of the second period.

They scored three more times to end the period tied 6-6 with the Demons, who had taken a 5-2 lead into the second period.

But the Stampeders still had one goal in them in the third, scored by Jeff Gagnon, and they defended that lead stubbornly for the last nine minutes of the game.

 

Once again, the Ice Demons will look on this one as a championship they let slip away and won’t rely on the excuse of being short the 15 playoff points represented by two key absent players, sniper Blaine Markwart and MVP defenseman, Jeff Mildenberger, both of whom were unable to make the trip to Williams Lake for the last two games.
