Back at home

The Dauphin Kings will look to end November the exact way they started the month, with a win.

The team wraps up the month with the back end of a home-and-home against the Portage Terriers. On Friday night, Dauphin opened the scoring just 1:24 into the contest and they never looked back in a decisive 5-2 win at Stride Place. It was the team’s seventh straight win and their 19th win in their last 22 contests.

Despite dropping their 13th game of the season, Portage did show signs of improvement throughout the game. The fact is that the Terriers are a young team this season but they continue to get better every game, they have won three of their last four.

Friday’s win combined with Waywayseecappo’s shocking loss now has Dauphin eight points ahead of their West Division rivals. The Wolverines were up 6-3 in the third period before the Freeze scored four straight goals to stun the second place team in the West. Winnipeg remains at the bottom of the East Division.

Saturday’s game is the second and final between the two clubs this season and Dauphin is looking for their 10th home win this season. They earned their 10th win on the road on Friday.
