RDC Kings hockey force Game 3 with MacEwan University Griffins

The RDC Kings will play a do-or-die game Saturday.

They forced a deciding contest in their best-of-three Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference semifinal series against MacEwan University Griffins with a 1-0 overtime victory Friday night.

After 60 minutes of scoreless hockey, Dylan Thudium broke the deadlock for the home side 6:07 into the extra frame at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.

Troy Trombley turned aside 33 shots in the Kings net while Marc-Oliver Daigle stopped 33 for the Griffins.

Game 3 goes Saturday night in Edmonton.

The Kings fell behind in the best-of-three ACAC semi-final after a tough 4-3 double-overtime loss Thursday in Edmonton.

RDC jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first with goals from Chase Thudium, Tanner Butler and Dylan Thudium, before the Griffins came storming back. Garan Magnes scored with 4:50 left in the first then Brett Njaa buried with just 42 seconds remaining in the frame.

Njaa notched a power-play tally late in the second to tie the game at three.

In the second overtime, Tyler Morrison found the game-winner.
