Steelheads extend undefeated record

A month into the 2011-2012 Central Interior Hockey League season, the Smithers Steelheads remain undefeated.

A month into the 2011-2012 Central Interior Hockey League season, the Smithers Steelheads remain undefeated. The only other team in the league with the same record is Quesnel, in the inaugural season for the Kangaroos.

Last Saturday the Steelheads were in Kitimat, facing the Ice Demons. After a scoreless first period, Mitch Pederson and Darryl Young both scored for Smithers. Two Kitimat goals from Blaine Markwart and William DeJong evened up the score. Randall Groot picked up one more for the Steelheads in the third, with a 3-2 win going to Smithers.

On Sunday afternoon the Steelheads were in Prince Rupert, facing the Rampage. Kristopher Ouellette scored the sole goal for the Rampage in the first period; from that point on, the Steelheads racked up point after point, finishing with a 10-1 win. Ryan DeVries scored a hat trick, while Adam DeVries and Stu Barnes scored two each. Young, Groot and Ryan Green all scored a goal each.

The pair of wins leaves the Steelheads at the top of the CIHL Central Division. The next home game in Smithers will be this Friday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m. at the Civic Centre Arena against the Hazelton Wolverines.
