Demons shut out Stamps in Coy opener

The Ice Demons left it late in their Coy Cup opener, but they got the job done.

The game saw the Demons taking on the Williams Lake Stampeders, the team that just 10 days earlier had stormed back to snatch the CIHL Rio Tinto Cup away from Kitimat.

This time neither team could get one into the net through the first two periods and it was still scoreless with less than five minutes to play.

But then the Demons finally found a way past Stamps goalie Justin Foote not once, but three times.

Daniel Mayer scored on a power play with 4.32 left in the third with assists going to Craig Hewitson and Blane Markwart.

Just 31 seconds later, right from the face-off, Derek Wakita made it 2-0 from Jeff Baker and Terry Whelan.

And to clinch things, a minute and five seconds after that Markwart scored from Wade Masch and Hewitson.

Jamie Moran in the Demons’ net was star of the game, making all 19 stops.

The Demons had 35 shots on Justin Foote.

Kitimat face hosts Prince Rupert Rampage tonight at 8 p.m. tonight.

In last night’s action the Rampage took a lead but eventually lost 5-3 to defending Coy Cup champions Powell River Regals.

The other game today is Powell River v Stampeders at 5 p.m.
