good things must come to an end 4-7 in game 3 of the series. All our
goals came on the PP with Derek McWhinnie (2) and Mason Shukalak (2)
doing the scoring. Assists went to Nick Orsini, Gavin Olito (2), Shawn
Kempster, Kody DePaoli and Liam Skitch. Shots 30-48, PP 4-7 and PK 1-1.
We fought hard all series and this game was no exception. The biggest
thing was our inability to shoot the puck into the wide open spots in
the net after we had created the scoring chance. Part of the that was
Wetaskiwin's team defense. In this game we overcame a sloppy first part
of the 2nd period and tied the game up in the middle of the 3rd. We
created the chances but they closed the door with a couple late goals.
Good luck to the Icemen!! This also spells the end of our 21 year olds
career's and start of their new positions of being Beauty Royalamainiacs.
Brenden (I spelt it right) Klutke, Liam Skitch, Ryan Rosich and Logan
Walters were great Royals and a lot of fun to have on the team for their
4 seasons. They all added something different to the mix with their
skill's. We will miss them on the ice. (10).
2-5 loss in 2. Shawn Kempster and Ryan Rosich scored our goals with
Taylor Shields (2) and Christian Chorney (2) the assists. Shots 28-37,
PP 0-5 and PK 3-3. We are creating the goals opportunities but not putting
the puck in the net ('why don't you go to your home puck - don't you
like your home'). The games are fast and hard, we need to continue to
pressure but finish our chances. Our Write-in Royalamainiac was Brad
didn't get the result we wanted in game 1 as we fell 2-6. Our goals
came from Derek McWhinnie and Brenden Klutke with assists to Brenden
Klutke, Gavin Olito and Derek McWhinnie. Shots 48-33, PP 1-8 and PK
2-3. We played hard and need to score on the Blue Plate chances we create.
(That has nothing to do with a certain blue haired coach that used to
be with the River Kings). Our Write-in Royalamainiac was Mitch Cunningham.
series came to a close in convincing fashion with a 8-1 win. Brenden
Klutke started the game where he left off game 2 with the 1st of the
game then Liam Skitch took over with a hat trick, Mason Shukalak (2),
Derek McWhinnie and Taylor Shields rounded out the scoring. Setting
up the goals Derek McWhinnie, Shawn Kempster (2), Logan Walters (3),
Phil Couture, Nick Orsini, Kody DePaoli, Brenden Klutke (2), Taylor
Shields, Will Kulmatycki and Colton Broomhall. Shots 52-23, PP 3-7 and
PK 2-3. Maybe the 2 teams played each other too many times this season
(pre season, reg season, playoffs) cause they weren't happy with each
other and it showed on the number of penalties being taken. Belt to
Skitch. Write-in Royalamainiac was Taylor Shukalak. (10).
to our Captain we win game 2 in a 4-3 skatefest. Brenden Klutke set
up the first 2 goals and scored the game winner with 15 seconds to go.
Logan Walters, Shawn Kempster and Taylor Shields scored and assists
went to Derek McWhinnie (2), Mason Shukalak (2), Christian Chorney and
Nick Orsini. Shots 33-32, PP 0-4 and PK 5-5. We played hard but not
always smart. Good things happen when we keep the bad guys to the outside
and we drive to the net without the puck. On to game 3. Brenden got
the belt and Andy Fox was the Write-in Royalamainiac. (11).
1 didn't end the way we planned it as we lost 3-4. Our goal scorers
were Ryan Rosich ( I thought it was Skitch), Mason Shukalak and Derek
McWhinnie. With assists to Liam Skitch, Ayden Justice-Riar, Timon Mueller
(2) and Logan Walters. Shots 46-18, PP 0-3 and PK 3-3. It's been said
before but we are a way better team when we have a full roster. Playoffs
also mean suck it up and play through all the shit. James Patterson
was the Write-in Royalamainiac. (12).

score was very flattering to us, as we skated like a group that had
better things to do than come to practice this week. This equals a 2-6
loss to Fort Sask. Taylor Shields (unassisted cause the ref didn't pay
attention and asked the bench instead of his linesmen), and Logan Walters
scored our goals, from Brenden Klutke and Kody DePaoli. Shots 33-51,

was the final against Sherwood Park. We played the game with 4 officials
and it was quite a tame game but there were a ton of penalties. Most
of them were 10's and mostly trying to settle down frisky kids.
Game 3 wasn't as inspired as the first 2 games and we fell 2-4 to St.
Albert. Camp is coming along very good and the decisions will be hard.
2 didn't go as planned as we lost 2-3 to the Warriors.
1 of the preseason was a success, we skated and bumped our way to a
4-3 win against the Knights. Lots of new guys in the lineup and they
