ALBERTON – Alex Morrissey’s goal with 40 seconds remaining in the second period was the difference.

Chandler Wood, Brayden Handrahan, Brayden Arsenault and Cody Ellsworth earned assists for the Regals. Alex Young and Andrew Campbell drew helpers on Charlottetown’s goal.
Bronson Banks was the winning goaltender, and Ava Boutilier was between the pipes for the Abbies.
