Red Deer College teams firing on all cylinders

Kings 2 Clippers 1

CARONPORT, Sask. — The RDC Kings had problems with the Briercrest Bible College Clippers the first time they met in Alberta Colleges Men’s Hockey League play this season at the Penhold Regional Multiplex.

The Kings won one and tied one. This time the Kings were on the road, so it wasn’t a surprise to see just as intense of a battle.

The RDC squad managed to pull out a 2-1 victory Friday on Dustin Gorgi’s goal at 11:37 of the third period, breaking a 1-1 tie.

Blair Mulder gave the Kings a 1-0 lead in the second period with Tristan Hermanson tying it at 1:17 of the third.

The Kings finished with 40 shots on Dan Dekoning while Troy Trombley made 36 saves for the Kings.

‘The RDC power play didn’t do them much good as they were zero-for-six with the man advantage and gave up a power play goal on six shorthanded situations.

The teams meet again Saturday afternoon.

CALGARY — The RDC Queens got back on the winning track in the Alberta Colleges Women’s Basketball League with a 75-48 victory over the Ambrose University Lions Friday.
