Kings hockey win fourth in a row

Finish the regular season with a home-and-home next weekend against SAIT

The RDC Kings took care of business on the ice Saskatchewan this weekend.

RDC picked up a pair of wins over the Briercrest College Clippers, Friday with a 7-0 shutout win and a narrow 4-3 victory Saturday.

The two victories extended the Kings win streak to four games in Alberta College Athletic Conference men’s hockey play and helped maintain second place in the conference. RDC leads the MacEwan University Griffins by one point with two games to play.

Nathan Alalouf was perfect with a 24-save shutout Friday, while Chase Thudium led the way offensively with a pair of tallies and an assist. Rookie defenceman Carter Wolski had a goal and a pair of assists and both Tyler Podgorenk and Ryley Smith had two assists. Donovan Lumb, Tyrell Mappin, Chance Longjohn and Lynnden Pastachak also all had goals.

Saturday afternoon, the Kings needed a little late game magic to pick up the win. Austin Hunter scored shorthanded with just 1:26 to play to break a 3-3 tie and push his side to the victory. Dylan Thudium, Mathieu Lapointe and Scott Ferguson all also scored for RDC.

Arik Weersink picked up the win in the Kings net, he stopped 30 shots.

The Kings round out the regular season with a home-and-home with the SAIT Trojans. RDC’s final home game is Feb. 29 against the Trojans.

The RDC Queens finished the regular season with a 3-1 loss at home against the NAIT Ooks. Jenessa Fournier had the only goal for the Queens, while Karlee Fetch made 14 saves.

NAIT took a 2-1 lead late in the game on the power play and added an empty-net goal with 45 seconds to play on the power play to close out the victory.

The two teams will be back at it next weekend in the first round of the ACAC women’s hockey playoffs.
