The score can’t get much better than that, it was a staggering triumph for the Quesnel Kangaroos as the took on the Lac La Hache Tomahawks on Nov. 29.

This game severed as the fourth match the ‘Roos played against the Tomahawks and what a game it was.

After losing to the Tomahawks in their previous two matches the ‘Roos seemed determined to make up for that loss and quickly trampled the Tomahawks.

As the buzzer sounded, calling the players to the ice the ‘Roos were poised and ready for the oncoming Tomahawks.

Only four minutes into the first period ‘Roo Justin Fulton, assisted by Coltin De Frais, scored the first goal of the night and from there the Quesnel boys appeared unstoppable.

The next goal was scored by Ryan Hanes, with the help of Kris Mattice and Mitch Galbraith.

Skating in for the third goal of the night was Alessio Tomassetti, with Fulton assisting.

Mattice and Hanes assisted Galbraith for yet another goal for the ‘Roos.

This was quickly followed by a goal from De Frais, with the help of Fulton.

And scoring the final goal of the first period for the ‘Roos was Tomassetti, assisted by Fulton and De Frais.

Scoring goal after goal after goal the ‘Roos proved they are a force to be reckoned with.

Quesnel’s team skated in for the second period with a six goal lead and though the Tomahawks started the second period off on a good note, scoring their first goal of the night, this brief victory was definitely short lived.

The Kangaroos netted another three pucks before the Tomahawks could even manage their second goal of the night.

‘Roo trio Tomassetti, Fulton and De Frais scored the first and second goals of the second period for Quesnel.

The third goal went to Mattice, assisted by Hanes and Waylon L’Heureux.

After struggling and failing to keep up with the visiting ‘Roos the Tomahawks scored their second goal of the night, but having already fallen drastically behind they would need more than one goal to become a threat.

Before the buzzer sounded to signal the end of the second period the ‘Roos took aim and fired, scoring another two goals.  First by Galbraith, assisted by Hanes and Mattice, followed by Futon with the help of De Frais and Tomassetti.

Though it seemed the Tomahawks weren’t going to go down without a fight, literally.

Nearing the end of the second period Tomahawk Ellery Brigham and Kangaroos Ryan Skinner were each given five minutes in the penalty box for fighting.

Though this remained the only major scuffle taking place on the ice.

With a triumphant nine goal lead at the start of the third period the ‘Roos appeared to have it in the bag.

The Tomahawks scored two goals in the third and final period, but to their two the ‘Roos scored another four goals leaving the Tomahawks far behind.

The final buzzer sounded ending the game with a staggering final score of 15-4 in favour of the ‘Roos.

The Quesnel boys returned home victorious, leaving the Tomahawks with some time for practice before facing-off again.
