The Royals went a perfect 6-0 through the weekend, and defeated the Edgy Islanders of Victoria 4-2 in the final game.

The Royals were down on the scoreboard 2-1 heading into the third period, but got a huge tying goal from Abbotsford’s Jake Enns to even the game at 2-2. Minutes later, Mission’s Sean Sidhu got the eventual game winner when he wired home a slap shot to put the Royals up 3-2.  Enns sealed the victory with his second goal of the game, and it ended 4-2.
