The Elmira Jackals struck first on Wednesday at the Santander Arena, but the Royals responded with 4 unanswered goals to seal a win over their division rivals.

Reading got goals from T.J. Syner, Domenic Monardo, Sean Wiles and Ryan Cruthers  across all three periods.

The Royals win keeps momentum going from last weekend's road trip that saw the team go 2-1.
