It’s still early in the West Coast Senior League hockey season, but fans of the Corner Brook Royals should be smiling after a weekend of great hockey.  The Royals downed the Caribous in a weekend series and also defeated the Deer Lake Red Wings to extend their winning streak to 4 games.

What’s impressive is the play of Morgan Warren, who had a stellar performance throughout the weekend and in one game, scored 6-goals.

Yes, the Corner Brook Royals, a team that many people had counted out this year have started the year off with a bang – a very big bang.  Newfoundland Hockey Talk had picked the Royals to finish in the basement of the league once again.  However after the play this weekend, it looks like this season is shaping up to be a very interesting one indeed.  The Royals have shown they can play and play hard.  They are a much improved team and look to have new life in this early season.

Some will argue that the Caribous were short their star goalie – Jason Churchill, but one can’t argue that the Royals did outplay the Caribous.   Rumours abound on the Newfoundland Hockey Talk Discussion Forum about Churchill being gone for the year but sources say that this is only rumour.  Churchill was called away last minute for work commitments and that he will return next weekend.

With play resuming next weekend, it will be interesting to see how things shake out in this early season.
