Victoria Royals stay in with game 4 win over Kelowna Rockets

The Victoria Royals scored in overtime to defeat the Kelowna Rockets 5-4 in game number 4 of their Western Hockey league playoff series.

It took an overtime a goal mouth scramble to score but the Victoria Royals will take the needed win.

Royals’ Greg Chase scored the overtime winning goal at the 5:30 mark to propel the homeside to a 5-4 overtime victory over the Kelowna Rockets in the Western Conference Semi-Final. The Rockets lead the best-of-seven series 3-1.

The Royals trailed 4-2 mid-way through the third period when Jack Walker and Brandon Magee scored 24 seconds apart to force extra time. Royals’ Austin Carroll and Walker notched the other goals for the home team.  The Rockets received tallies from Lucas Johansen, Tyson Baillie, Rourke Chartier and Tomas Soustal.

Victoria netminder Justin Paulic turned aside 36 of the 40 shots he faced. Kelowna goaltender Jackson Whistle stopped 27 of the 32 pucks directed at him.

Neither team was able to capitalize on the powerplay as Victoria went 0/3=0.0% and Kelowna went 0/8=0.0%.

The Royals will play Kelowna for Game 5 to square off against the Rockets on Friday.
