Il­le­gal player re­sults in changes

Wind­sor Roy­als pick up two wins in games they orig­i­nally lost

Valley Journal Advertiser - - SPORTS - BY DAN BOYD WWW.HANTSJOURNAL.CA

The Wind­sor Roy­als, of the Nova Sco­tia Re­gional Ju­nior Hockey League, were handed two wins af­ter league of­fi­cials de­ter­mined an il­le­gal player was on the ice for some re­cent games.

League of­fi­cials no­ti­fied the Ju­nior C squad that the two games they had lost to the Eastern Shore Thun­der, which were by scores of 3-2 and 6-4, would ac­tu­ally go down in the win col­umn for the Roy­als.

League pres­i­dent Tom Fo­ley told the Val­ley Jour­nal-Ad­ver­tiser that the league de­ter­mined the Thun­der used an il­le­gal player in each win.

“An il­le­gal player can be some­one who has not signed a Hockey Nova Sco­tia card or per­haps they did not have their proper re­lease from an­other provin­cial hockey body,” said Fo­ley.

“Rules are rules and they must be abided by and there­fore the Roy­als are be­ing awarded the two wins.”

With the prob­lem rec­ti­fied, the Thun­der vis­ited Wind­sor for the third game in this sea­son. They were sched­uled to play on Oct. 26 in Wind­sor.

Head­ing into that game, the Roy­als had a 4-3-0 record.

In pre­vi­ous ac­tion

The Roy­als recorded a win and a loss on Oct. 20 and Oct. 21.

In Spry­field against the first­place at­tack on Oct. 20, Wind­sor was crushed 9-4 as the At­tack mounted leads of 4-0 and 7-2 af­ter the first and sec­ond pe­ri­ods.

Spencer Bauch­man and Cameron Dauphi­nee, with a power-play ef­fort, scored for the Roy­als in the sec­ond be­fore Chad Wood­ill and Bran­don Sul­li­van scored for the Roy­als in the third.

The Roy­als were out­shot 43-38. On Oct. 21, the Roy­als beat the Colts 4-1.

The home game saw the Colts and Roy­als pile up 218 penalty min­utes, with 194 of them be­ing as­sessed in the third pe­riod. Of­fi­cials handed out seven mi­nors, nine mis­con­ducts, six ma­jor penal­ties and six game mis­con­ducts. As a re­sult, the Roy­als’ Bauch­man has been sus­pended for two games for be­ing in­volved in two fights dur­ing the same stop­page of play and Keagan Levangie will not play again for three games af­ter be­ing sus­pended for stag­ing a fight.

Be­fore the rough play be­gan in the third, Levangie scored a pair of goals for the Roy­als to put them up 3-1 over the Colts.

The Colts opened the scor­ing in the sec­ond pe­riod but Sul­li­van tied it for the Roy­als be­fore Levangie’s two goals. Ja­cob Cald­well closed out the scor­ing in the third pe­riod.

The Roy­als were slated to play three games Oct. 26-28; they were at home against Eastern Shore on Oct. 26, in Sackville Oct. 27, and at home to Sackville on Oct. 28.
