Yannick Tifu scored a pair of goals to lead the Royals to a home win over Cincinnati.

READING, Pa. -

It's been a busy week for the Reading Royals.

They've been to Washington to scrimmage the Capitals of the NHL as they prepare for their season.  They followed that with a morning game in Trenton. That was a tough overtime loss. 

Friday night, the Royals were back home after a little rest and faced Cincinnati. The Royals were trying to snap a three-game losing streak.

Behind two goals from Yannick Tifu, Reading snapped that skid with a 4-1 victory at the Sovereign Center.

Reading also got goals from Nikita Kashirsky and Adam Comrie.

The Royals increase their conference-best record to 27-9-2-2. They'll host Elmira on Saturday night.
