PRINCE GEORGE BC – A goal from Nick Bochen and 29 shots to the Powell River goal was not enough as the Prince George Spruce Kings were edged 2-1 by the Powell River Kings.
In a fast-paced opening frame, Powell River found themselves on the man advantage. It took just eight seconds into the power-play for Brett Roloson to find the back of the net. Roloson got a feed right in front of the goal and released a one-time shot past Jett Alexander to give Powell River a 1-0 after the opening twenty minutes.
In the second frame, it was again Roloson on the power-play to give the Kings a 2-0 lead. Roloson raced the puck into the attacking zone and shot the puck underneath the glove of Alexander and upped the lead to 2-0 for the Powell River Kings. A few minutes later, Prince George was able to get their first power-play of the afternoon. It was at the 14-minute mark, where a Nick Bochen point shot made its way through traffic and past goaltender Derek Krall to get the Spruce Kings on the board and to make the game 2-1.
The Spruce Kings had a pair of power-plays in the final period but were unable to find the equalizer as Powell River wrapped up their road trip with a 2-1 win on a Sunday Afternoon at the RMCA.
The Spruce Kings home-stand continues, as they host the Chilliwack Chiefs for a pair of games beginning Thursday night at the RMCA. That one is slated for a 7:00 PM puck drop. You can get your tickets at the Spruce Kings office or online on the Spruce Kings website.
