Soy tallied two goals in the middle frame that included a highlight reel marker when he deked around Cougars’ defenseman Brendan Guhle, outwaited netminder Ty Edmonds, and slid the puck five-hole. The Royals’ forward completed his hat-trick just 28 seconds into the third period when he redirected a point-shot from Chaz Reddekopp. Soy wrapped up his four-point outing when he assisted on the game’s final goal, which was scored by Reddekopp. Matthew Phillips tallied Victoria’s opening marker.
