RDC Kings lose ACAC Men’s Hockey semifinal to Grant MacEwan

The RDC Kings season came to an end on Saturday night in Penhold.

The Grant MacEwan University Griffins beat the Kings 4-2 and earned the series victory in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference Men’s Hockey semifinal.

RDC appeared to be in good shape after 20 minutes, with Austin Hunter and Tanner Butler both finding the mark for the home side.

The Griffins responded with a pair of markers in the second to tie the game at two.

On the power play 8:23 in the third, Sean MacTavish scored for Grant MacEwan and Ryan Baskerville notched an empty net goal to clinch the win late in the frame.

Marc Oliver Daigle was stellar in the win for the Griffins with 31 saves while Mike Salmon stopped 27 in the loss for RDC.

Salmon, the fifth-year Kings netminder was named player of the game.

Undisciplined play hurt the Kings in the loss as they went to the penalty box seven times. RDC was unable to convert on five power plays.
