They went a perfect 6-0 through the competition and defeated the Edgy Islanders of Victoria 4-2 to take home the championship. The Royals were down on the scoreboard 2-1 heading into the third period but  a huge tying goal from Abbotsford’s Jake Enns evened the game at two.

Minutes later Mission’s Sean Sidhu got the eventual game winner when he wired home a slap shot to put the Royals up 3-2. Enns sealed the victory with his second goal of the game, 4-2. The 2000 Royals top three point getters were Abbotsford’s Brett Bass with nine goals three assists, Mission’s Hayden Vetterals, five goals, five assists, Maple Ridge’s Jacob Mainhout, four goals, three assists.

The Royals are coached by Troy Stordy, Scott Penman, Jeff Penman and Ken McPhalen.
