The home team applied consistent pressure throughout the entire game.

Three unanswered goals in the second period break rival’s confidence

The Roos played like they had something to prove on Saturday night (Dec. 15), handing their rivals from south on Highway 97 a 10-3 thrashing.

Paul Girodat, Nick Tomassetti and Tommy Grant each found the back of the net twice on a night, with the fans at West Fraser Centre getting their money’s worth.

Rounding out the scoring for the home team were Justin Fulton, Alessio Tomassetti, Chase Astorino and Karl Weberg.

The Williams Lake Stampeders got two goals from Nathan Zurak and one from Matt Lees but were consistently frustrated by the Quesnel defense over the course of the evening.

Although the game was somewhat tight through one period, with Quesnel eking out a 3-2 lead, the Roos scored three unanswered goals in the second to give themselves a comfortable cushion to finish out the evening.

The Stampeders will have their chance for revenge when the two teams face off for their last regular season match-up against one another on Jan. 5.
