Jackals score four unanswered goals in final period to knock off Reading 5-2 in the final game before the all-star break.


The Royals have been sizzling at home as of late. Reading's win Saturday night over Elmira was the team's tenth straight victory at the Sovereign Center. That mark sets a new team record.

The Royals looked to push the streak to 11 games Monday afternoon against those same Jackals in a matinee game at the Sovereign Center.

Behind goals from Joel Champagne and David Marshall, Reading took a 2-1 lead into the third and final period. That's where things got messy.


In a blitzkrieg, the Jackals rattled off four unanswered goals in the third and final period to capture a 5-2 win over the Royals.

Louie Caporusso netted his second goal in the final frame to tie it at 2-2. Alexander Beauregard, Justin Daniels and Dustin Gazley scored the rest of Elmira's goals in the third.

The Royals head into the all-star break still leading the Eastern Conference by four points. They'll return to action on Saturday, February 26th when Las Vegas visits Reading for the weekend.
