Christmas sweater jerseys can't help Royals stop skid

The Reading Royals lost Sunday night, but they did so with Christmas cheer.

The Royals donned some special Christmas sweater jerseys Sunday night in a 3-2 loss to the Elmira Jackals at the Santander Arena.

The Royals fell behind 1-0 and 2-1, but rallied to tie the game both times.

But Kyle Bushee's goal in the second period broke a 2-2 tie and proved to be the difference.

The Royals are now winless in their last five games.
