RDC Kings and Queens hockey teams win Saturday

Queens 3 SAIT 1

Red Deer College’s hockey teams have reason to smile after picking up wins Saturday night.

The Queens beat SAIT Polytechnic on the road 3-1 and the Kings grabbed a 4-2 win over NAIT at the Penhold Multiplex, avenging a 3-2 double-overtime loss at NAIT the night before.

Damien Kulynych got the Kings on the board first, about half way through the opening period.

NAIT answered back with a goal of its own early in the second frame, but Kulynych’s second goal of the game and a Tyler Berkholtz tally put the Kings up 3-1 going into the final period.

King Jason Miller scored a shorthanded marker with about four minutes left in the third. NAIT was able to score on the powerplay before the game ended, but it wasn’t enough as the Kings won 4-2.

Mike Salmon stopped 33 of 35 shots in the win.

In the women’s game, Queen Jade Petrie scored the lone first period goal with a helper from Sydnee Decorby.

The second period was scoreless, but the Queens’ Keinyn Nordell put her team up by two about a minute into the third frame.

SAIT scored a few minutes later, but Queen Celine Chailler scored an insurance marker for RDC with just over a minute left. Petrie picked up an assist on the goal – her second point of the night.

RDC’s Tracie Kikuchi stopped 20 of 21 shots in the game.

Both the Kings and Queens are 9-5 so far in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference season.

Neither team will play until after the holiday break.
