The Royals had 5 different goal scores on the score sheet: Josh Hardiman, Lucas Condotta, Sam Hu, Rylee St. Onge and Doug Carter tallied while Eric Holland scored all three goals for the Tigers for the hat-trick.

After unveiling their 2015-16 North Division Championship banner in a pregame celebration, the Markham Royals continued the party with a 4-1 win over the Pickering Panthers on Friday night. The win was Markham’s second of the season, their first on home ice, against a very young Panthers squad that held their own against the more veteran Royals lineup. “We knew they were going to work hard,” said Royals head coach Mike Galati after the game, “They are a real young and eager group that’s got some skill and speed. There were times where they outworked us, it took some time for us got get it going with the ceremony, we thought we would be okay if we didn’t get outworked the whole game and we were good enough to win”.

The Markham Royals began their 2016-17 campaign with a win on Saturday after taking a trip down the QEW to Burlington to face the Cougars. “It’s always good to get a win in your first game especially when you are on the road, playing against a good hockey team, and we had a good night,” said Royals Head Coach Mike Galati after the game, “it feels good that’s for sure”. The Royals got off to a bit of a slow start with a warm-up violation penalty to start the game, followed by a too-many men bench minor leading to an early Burlington goal and lead in the game. A situation that could go either way for a team playing it’s first game as a complete unit, with some new faces to the league, but the Coach was not worried. “That stuff happens,” said Galati, “I just said to the guys to just settle down, let’s regain focus. You are on the road, you are not familiar with surroundings, but I think we did an excellent job of refocusing and taking control”.
