Kings 5 Thunder 2

PENHOLD — The RDC Kings got their record back to .500 in the Alberta Colleges Men’s Hockey League with a 5-2 victory over the Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder at the Penhold Regional Multiplex Friday.

The Kings, 6-6-2-1, also moved into a tie for fourth place in the league with the Augustana Vikings, who do have a game in hand. The Thunder dropped to 3-10-0-0.

Riley Simpson opened the scoring for RDC at 14:36 of the first period only to see Chance Thomas tie the score at 15:42. However, Scott Ferguson put the Kings ahead for good at 18:33.

Trevor Costello and Dylan Baer connected in the second period for RDC. Ian McLellan narrowed the gap at 6:15 of the third period, but Tyler Berkholtz put the final nail in the coffin with an empty net marker at 19:29.

Devon Fordyce, who has been the forgotten man of late, started in goal for the Kings and finished with 23 saves. The Kings had 31 shots on Tanner McCorristan.

The teams meet again tonight in Edmonton. The Kings finish the first half of their schedule next weekend at Briercrest.
