With three wins over outside division teams last weekend the Royals extended their league record to 8-1.

In the early hours of Friday morning the Royals team was on the bus for the trip up to Hudons, NH where they would play the hometown team Northern Mass. Cyclones. Two goals in the first period, one from Monfredo and one from Mehalakes put the Royals up 2-0.   Royals goalie Corey Cairo turned away all 25 Cyclone shots to earn another shutout and give the Royals the win.  
Saturday the team played the Portland Jr Pirates and the game became the Vinny Monfredo show.   Monfredo scored all four goals for the Royals with one in the first and three in the second half.   Jake Bichko  and Andrew Green each had two assists with Drizis and Goldberg picking up one each.     
Game #3 on Sunday was against the Dowd Division second place Junior Flyers.    Goals by Keating, Drizis, Zaverdas and Bichko were enough for the 4-2 win.   Matt Goldberg  had a great day not only scoring a goal but had three assists.  Marchetti and Lanaro split the game in net giving up only one power play goal each.
