The hockey Paladins continue to be the talk of not only the OUA but the entire CIS. Teams from East to West are beginning to take notice. RMC earned another pair of victories over the weekend. They traveled to Toronto and edged both Ryerson and U of T by identical 3-2 scores.
Luke Pierce, Paul Bradley, and Roman Sruteck were the marksmen against Ryerson. Richard Lim, Jeffrey Oke, Matt Fetzner, and Tyler Spice all chipped in with one assist each. Goalie, Adam Briggs continued his hot play making 36 saves and also added a rare assist by a goalie.
In the second half of the weekend doubleheader, Michael Soros broke a 2-2 tie at the 17:01 mark of the third period to preserve the victory. IV year players, Josh Fudge and Luke Pierce with his second of the weekend and his sixth league leading goal of the season rounded out the scoring. Roman Sruteck, Tyler Spice, Ian Miller and Paul Bradley all had one assist. Matt Hartney was key in goal as RMC were out shot by a wide margin 30 – 19.
Paul Bradley now sits tied for first place in OUA scoring and tied for second spot in the entire CIS at 13 points. Luke Pierce is the next top point getter on the RMC squad with a very respectable nine after seven games. The goaltending tandem of Adam Briggs and Matt Hartney are among the stingiest in the CIS – giving up only 15 regulation game goals in seven games played. The Paladins have been involved with three shoot-outs winning two of them. The five goals scored by UWO in the season opener are the most allowed by RMC in one game.
The team passed a big test on the weekend with the two road wins. They have served notice to all the other teams in the OUA that they are for real. Well balanced offence; tough “D” and quality goaltending. A team that can win the close games.
RMC will be at home this weekend as the two Toronto teams will be looking for payback. Ryerson on friday with a 7PM start. U of T on Saturday, opening face-off time is set for 2PM – both games @Constantine arena. More hockey details
