The Manchester Monarchs continued their winning ways on Saturday night with their second victory in as many days against the Reading Royals, this one ending with a 6-2 final score.

Matt Schmalz contributed a pair of goals, with Manchester also receiving goals from Martin Nemcik, Matt Marcinew, Spencer Watson and Jordan LaVallee-Smotherman.

LaVallee-Smotherman’s goal scoring streak is now at four games, and he’s recorded a goal in seven of his last nine appearances.

Frank Hora and Jimmy DeVito added third period tallies for the Royals, who were outshot 40-29 over the course of the contest.

The win puts Manchester (19-9-1-1) at 40 points on the season, six points ahead of Wheeling after they concluded a 6-2 victory against Brampton just three minutes after the final horn in Reading.

The Monarchs return to action Wednesday, Dec. 27 (7 p.m.) when they travel to Glens Falls, N.Y. to take on the Adirondack Thunder.
