Recap: VIC 3 - REG 7

Adam Beukeboom got his 2nd win.
In the Victoria Royals (13-25-2-3) first outing without Kevin Sundher, they lit the lamp 3 times but fell 7-3 to the Pats in Regina (25-16-3-1) Friday night.

Tied at 3 after 40 minutes, Regina scored 4 straight led by Andrew Reider’s (3g, 1a) 3rd period hat trick and Jordan Weal’s 5 point night (2g 3a).  Martin Marincin (1g 2a) was third star in his home debut.  Adam Bookeboom notched his 2nd win of the season, as Keith Hamilton suffered his 20th loss.  Regina outshot Victoria 39-27. 

Victoria now winless in 10, held leads of 2-0 and 3-1 and got goals from from Logan Nelson (18th), Brandon Magee (12th), and Jamie Crooks 22nd who extends his point scoring streak to 6 games (5g, 6a).

Assistant Coach Enio Sacilotto thoughts following the 7-3 loss:
Jordan Fransoo
Jordan Fransoo looked steady in his first outing, and effective in killing penalty’s and was an even on the night.  Dakota Conroy took a piece off the puck with a shot in the third playing the right wing on a line with Mike Forsyth and Tim Traber.

Up next a Saturday night tilt against their former teammate, Kevin Sundher and the Brandon Wheat Kings.  Pregame show at 5:15 on The Zone at 91.3 FM.

Logan Nelson opened the scoring on a gratuitous bounce 1:20 in.  The Royals opened a 2 goal lead on Brandon Magee’s 12th, collecting a Steven Hodges rebound at the 13:17 mark.  The Pats would answer with just 47.8 seconds left in the first as Captain Brandon Davidson fired a Jordan Weal rebound past Hamilton for his 9th.

In the second, Jamie Crooks (1g) would extend his point streak to 6 games with his 22nd just 1:27 regaining the 2 goal lead.  Jordan Weal would score from between the circles on the power play at 3:30 and then Martin Marincin (1g 2a) would go glove side to get his first as a Pat at 13:51.  The two clubs would go into the third tied at 3.

Reider lit the lamp twice in a span of 3:07, Weal would add his second just 1:07 later, and then Reider would complete the hat trick at 16:08.  It was a four goal third period, 6 unanswered to erase a 3-1 Royal lead and win it by a convincing 7-3 score.
