CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Second-period goals four minutes apart proved the key to the Western Regals 7-4 victory over the Sherwood Drug Mart Central Attack Wednesday in Charlottetown.
Fifty-five seconds into the frame, Chandler DesRoches netted his second of three goals in the P.E.I. Midget AAA Hockey League contest, then Ethan Oliver (1-1) followed with a score at 4:05. It opened up a close 4-3 game and handed Western a 6-3 edge, enough rope to lasso the win.
Chase Gaudette (2-1) and Kalim DesRoches had the other Western markers. Carter Cahill and James Doyle each chipped in two assists.
Luke Dillon (2), Owen Matheson (1-1) and Noah Dow tallied the Attack goals.
Cole Gallant earned the win over Keegan Kelly.
Central was 1-for-9 on the power play, while Western went 2-for-11 with the extra man.
Western improved their perfect record to 16-0-0 while Central (3-12-1) is at the bottom of the five-team circuit.
