Smithers Steelheads blank Quesnel Kangaroos to open Coy Cup

Smithers Steelheads opened the 2012 Coy Cup with a 5-0 win over the Quesnel Kangaroos.

Smithers Steelheads netminder, Mike Wall, was perfect between the pipes Tuesday evening as he led his team to a 5-0 win over the Quesnel Kangaroos in the opening game of the 2012 Coy Cup.

Special teams were key in the win as the Steelheads managed two powerplay goals and a short-handed goal to take a 3-0 midway through the second period.

“We heard a lot about them [Kangaroos] from other teams about their play and their style, we just had to keep our composure and play our game,” Steelheads coach Tom De Vries said.

“We had to make sure we stayed out of the penalty box and they did go to the penalty box and they did.”
