The RDC Kings exacted some sweet revenge just 24 hours after a tough defeat.
RDC lost 5-3 Friday night at home to the top-ranked NAIT Ooks, but Saturday on the road, they played one of their best games of the season.
Arik Weersink, in just his second game since Nov. 30, put up a stellar performance with 30 saves in the 1-0 shutout over the number one team in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference.
Second-year winger Kyle Salaway scored the only goal for RDC at 4:18 of the second period.
Weersink was the player of the game for the Kings, he made one more stop than the other player of the game, Jordan Papirny who saved 25 shots for NAIT.
