This game had some good back and forth action right from the start. The action was back and forth but neither team put together many good scoring opportunities. The Royals took the lead when, Duncan Pernal sniped the top corner from the high slot with just over three minutes left to play in the first.
The Royals took momentum from the end of the first through the second, pulling away to a 4-0 lead. Mitch Collett scored two goals and Reid Duke added one of his own.
The Royals continued to out-chance the Hawks in the third period. Will Heseltine looked poised to get his second shutout of the season, but in the last two minutes the Hawks scored two power play goals. Will looked good stopping 36 of 38 shots he faced.

8 Ryan Chynoweth (F) — Ryan played a solid game. He likes the physical side of the game and can throw a big hit. Ryan was quite vocal on the ice, running breakouts and power play scenarios. It was his goal late in the third that spoiled Will Heseltine’s shutout bid. Ryan plays with a lot of heart.
Calgary Royals Gold
8 Mitch Collett (F) — Mitch led the Bisons offensively with two goals and two assists. Mitch and his line mates play well down low, and are able to control the puck well while cycling. Mitch scored a beautiful goal, beating the defence on his own before putting the puck behind the Hawks goalie. Mitch showed that he has good speed and stick handling ability and can also put them together.
