Kings 8 Voyageurs 1

PENHOLD – The RDC Kings found their scoring touch much to the chagrin of the Portage Voyageurs.

The Kings got goals from seven different players in downing the Voyageurs 8-1 in Alberta Colleges Men’s Hockey League play at the Penhold Regional multiplex Saturday.

The win completed a doubleheader sweep over the Voyageurs, who lost 4-0 to the Kings at home Friday.

Nick Fountain, Zak Hicks and Austin Hunter scored for the Kings in the first period with Tyler Berkholtz and Scott Ferguson making it 5-0 before Portage’s Brandon Syms spoiled Troy Trombley’s shutout bid.

Dustin Gorgi and Berkholtz connected at 19:30 and 19:55 on the power play to give RDC a 7-1 lead after 40 minutes.

Arie Postmus, who also had two assists, scored in the third period.

Tanner Butler was the RDC player of the game, finishing with three assists, while David Heath and Logan Sceviour had two helpers each.

Trombley, who made 33 saves in the shutout Friday, finished with 31 saves while the Kings had 47 shot son two Portage netminders.

The Kings finished three-for-seven on the power play and killed off six of seven shorthanded situations.

The win gave the Kings a 4-5-2-1 record while Portage dropped to 4-5-0-0.

The Kings meet the Augustana Vikings in a home-and-home series next week – Friday in Camrose and Saturday at 7 p.m. in Penhold.
