MCKENZIE CUP 2012

April 8, Game Four Recap

Brandon Skinnerís goal with 11 minutes remaining in game four of the best-of-five senior menís BC/Alberta championship eliminated the Powell River Regals from further playoff action and earned the Stony Plain Eagles a spot at Allan Cup 2012 as the pacific region representative. Eagles erased a two-goal third period deficit with goals by Blair Zahara and Jeff Yopyk before Skinner broke the tie by jamming a rebound past Regals goaltender Justin Mulholland.

Elias Godoy was the offensive star for the Regals on the night, scoring twice and adding an assist on Dale Lupulís second period power play goal. Jordan Ceh had the Eagles first goal of the game. Wade Waters recorded the win in goal for the second night in a row after relieving starter David Rathjen midway through the second period with his team trailing 3-1. Waters and Rathjen combined for 29 saves while Mulholland kicked out 22 for the hometown Regals.

Stony Plain will be one of six teams from across Canada competing for the Allan Cup later this month in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. The Regals will now set their sights on Allan Cup 2013 in Bentley, Alberta.
