by Blaine Meller
Despite repeated trips to the penalty box, the Cougars men’s hockey team captured the second game of their ACAC championship series with SAIT, winning the contest 4-2. The Cougars lost game one of the series 5-2.
Mount Royal was assessed five consecutive minor penalties in that period, including an overlapping pair which gave the visiting Trojans a two-man advantag for 1:51. The Cougars successfully killed off all five penalties and came out of the period with a 3-2 lead.
Barry Horman lead the way for Mount Royal with a natural hat trick, scoring three stright goals in the second period.

The fifth and final game will go Sunday, 6 p.m. at SAIT if needed.
