Houck scores twice as Giants beat Royals

VANCOUVER - Jackson Houck scored twice in the third period as the Vancouver Giants downed the visiting Victoria Royals 3-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Carter Popoff scored in the first period for the Giants (20-47-2), who made up for a 5-3 loss against Victoria on Friday.

Jamie Crooks scored the lone goal for the Royals (33-28-7), who have dropped 12 of their last 13 games.

Vancouver went the entire game without a power play while Victoria scored on its only chance with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
