With goals by Nick Childs and Tommy Ryan, the Royals left the ice after the first with a two goal lead. The Jets got on the scoreboard in the second with a goal by Jordan Bennett and two by Tim Caines, but the Royals also scored two in the period by Ryan MacMackin and Andrew Stagg to end up the second at 4-3 for the Royals.
The Royals came out quick in the third with Johnny Jones scoring just a little over a minute in. He had another in that period, along with three by Daniel Whitten and one from Tommy Ryan. Mark McGuire had the only goal in the third for the Jets.
There was a full house at the Dome for the game, which involved some fighting towards the end of the game, then the presentation of the Cliff Gorman Memorial Cup to the Royals Captain Ryan McMackin by members of Gorman’s family.
