The Victoria Royals were upended 6-4 by the Seattle Thunderbirds on Saturday night at the ShoWare Center.

Again the Royals continue to break down defensively allowing odd man rushes that cost them.

The Royals competed in their fourth teddy bear toss game of the season with tonight. Previously, the team had played in Prince George (December 2nd), in Vancouver (December 8th) and at home on December 15th against the Giants. This ties them with the Kamloops Blazers for the most teddy bear games played this season.
