RDC Kings hockey win ninth straight over SAIT

Queens fall to Trojans

The RDC Kings are heading into the semester break wishing it wasn’t coming so soon.

They’ve been world-beaters of late, securing their ninth straight win Saturday, downing the SAIT Trojans 5-4 in Calgary.

RDC was a perfect 8-0 in November, is 12-1-1 on the season and won’t be back on the ice again until Jan. 10.

In Saturday’s win, the Kings power play struck three times on 11 chances, two of which came in crunch time during the third period.

With SAIT up 4-3 early in the third period, Austin Hunter cashed in on the man advantage at 8:13 to tie the game at four.

Less than four minutes later, Chase Thudium buried the game-winning goal.

Dylan Thudium, Chance Longjohn and Jacob Wozney all scored for RDC in the victory. Thudium and Mathieu Lapointe also had two assists.

Arik Weersink made 26 saves in the Kings net, while Kyle Dumba stopped 38 shots for SAIT.

The Queens lost a tight 3-2 decision to the SAIT Trojans on home ice Saturday.

After RDC opened the scoring on a goal from Jessi-Lynn Sumaling, the Trojans scored three straight goals on the way to the victory.

Avery Lajeunnesse scored on the power play for the Queens at 7:27 of the third but the home side couldn’t find the equalizer in the final 10 minutes of the contest.

Madison Fox made 10 saves for RDC, while Cassidy Brown stopped 28 shots.
