Tyler Soy had a hot hand, he notched a goal in the second and third frames for the Royals, while Greg Chase would add a late marker for Victoria. Prince George’s other goals were scored by Haydn Hopkins and Aaron Boyd.

The Royals started Coleman Vollrath in net and he turned aside 17 of 20 shots before being replaced by Jayden Sittler who saved nine of 10 shots.  Cougars’ netminder Ty Edmonds stopped 16 of 19 shots in the win.
