Newfoundland Growlers (3-0-0-0) vs. Reading Royals (0-2-1-0) Sunday, October 23 – St. John’s, NL

OFFICIAL GAME SHEETGame Story

The Newfoundland Growlers made it a series sweep in style as they scored five first period goals en route to a 6-2 win over the Reading Royals on Sunday evening at Mary Brown’s Centre.

Jacob Gaucher opened the scoring for the visiting Royals 90 seconds into regulation before the Growlers quickly took control of the game.

With a Max Newton tally from Reading sandwiched between, Newfoundland got goals from Isaac Johnson (2), Todd Skirving, Keenan Suthers and Tommy Miller in the first 20 minutes of play – the latter two scoring their first goals as a pro.

Tyler Boland would add some insurance midway through the second period, finishing off a great 2-on-1 feed from Johnson to make it 6-2.

Dryden McKay made 29 saves in his second career pro start, turning away all 18 shots he faced after the opening frame to secure a 6-2 Growlers win.
