Victoria Royals slip past Portland Winterhawks

The contest marked the first encounter between the two teams since last year's playoffs

The Victoria Royals scored the first five goals of the game en route to a 6-2 victory over the Portland Winterhawks on Monday night in Western Hockey League play.

The contest marked the first encounter between the two teams since Portland knocked Victoria out of the 2014 WHL Playoffs.

The Royals tallied three goals in the middle frame with two highlight reel markers. Joe Hicketts finished off an Austin Carroll pass, while Mitch Skapski buried a behind the back feed from Regan Nagy. Victoria opened the scoring when rookies Nagy and Matthew Campese recorded their first career WHL markers in the first period. Both teams would score in the final frame with Jack Walker tallying for the Royals, and Oliver Bjorkstrand and Anton Cederholm scoring for the Winterhawks.

The Royals begin a six-game road trip tonight (Oct. 10).
