Despite a strong second period, the Richmond Royals came up short in a 7-4 loss to the Char-Lan Rebels Sunday afternoon in Richmond in their CCHL 2 junior hockey game.

The loss runs the Royals’ losing streak to four games. The club is now 3-14 on the year.

After falling behind 3-0 in the first period, the Royals tied things up in the second. Shane Carroll scored a power play goal from Willem Brandt and Same Wilson, and then Aiden Parnell scored a pair of goals, both assisted by Adam Goodfellow, with the second one coming shorthanded.

In the third, the Rebels scored three quick goals. Goodfellow got one back for the Royals shorthanded from Parnell and Danny Carroll, but the Rebels would score again to make the final 7-4.

On Sun., Nov. 4 in Richmond, Corey Symington of the Royals got the game’s first and last goals, but the Ottawa West Golden Knights scored five in between in a 5-2 Knights win. Ryan Bonfield, Patrick Yates and Vinny Quattrochi had assists.

The previous night, the Royals dropped a 4-3 decision to Carleton Place. Grant Cooper, Adam Goodfellow, Ryan Bouley and Josh Arts had the Royals goals.
