Owen Gill opened the scoring with his first of the year for the Paladins in a four-goal first period. Gill had missed 14 games for RMC before returning to action Friday night to have an immediate impact.
Rhett Willcox extended his goal-streak to three games when he took advantage of a Concordia giveaway to increase the Paladins lead.
Charlie Roy responded soon after for the Stingers to narrow RMC's lead to 2-1.
Still in the first period, Déric Boudreau found the back of the net to restore the Paladins two-goal lead.
