The Victoria Royals were downed 4-3 by the Tri-City Americans on Saturday night at the Toyota Center in a game that was highlighted by a heated first period.

The opening stanza saw 46 of the game’s 50 total penalty minutes, as tempers flared on multiple occasions.

Americans’ captain Tyler Sandhu registered a four-point night and Morgan Geekie recorded a pair of markers that included the game winner. Victoria’s Matthew Phillips extended his point-scoring streak to six games when he converted on a penalty shot in the first period. The Royals’ Regan Nagy scored in his third consecutive contest, while Jack Walker stretched his point-streak to four games with a goal and an assist.

During his six-game streak, Phillips has tallied 12 points, while Walker has recorded six points in his last four contests. With an assist on Walker’s goal, Chaz Reddekopp extended his point-streak to four contests where he has tallied one goal and three assists.

The Royals returned to the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on Tuesday to face the Portland Winterhawks. That match continues Wednesday, Dec. 14 (today). The puck drops at 7:05 p.m.
