RDC Kings hockey rolling early in ACAC season

The RDC Kings grabbed their third straight win in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference men’s hockey play.

RDC edged the University of Alberta-Augustana Vikings 5-4 at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre Saturday.

Veteran Lynnden Pastachak led the way with a pair of goals for RDC and was player of the game for his efforts. He buried an unassisted tally in the first and the game-winner 4:56 into the third.

Tyrell Mappin, Jacob Wozney and Kyle Salaway also had goals for the Kings, while Nathan Alalouf stopped 31 shots for the victory. Austin Hunter, Ryley Smith, Jantzen Leslie, Salaway and Ross Heidt had assists for RDC.

Friday, the Kings earned a 3-1 victory over the Vikings.

Owen Lamb scored for the Vikings in the first and from there the Kings buried three unanswered goals to win the contest.

Captain Scott Ferguson, fourth-year Austin Hunter and third-year Matthieu Lapointe all had goals for RDC in the win, while Tyler Podgorenko picked up a pair of assists. Second-year goalie Arik Weersink stopped 33 shots to earn the victory in net for the Kings.

Next weekend, the Kings travel to NAIT on OCT. 24 and will host the Ooks on Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.
