The Dauphin Kings are one win away from moving on to the second round of the MJHL playoffs.
It all started with a goal from Cordell Coleman to tie the contest and Dauphin would then open up the flood gates as they scored six straight goals to secure a 6-1 win Friday night at the Centennial.
The win now has Dauphin leading three games to none. Swan Valley opened the scoring just 5:40 into the game when Cody Barnes scored on the man advantage as the Stampeders took a 1-0 lead. Carson Cherepak was unbelieavble for Dauphin as the Stamps’ had many other great chances; however, they were unable to beat the league’s goaltender of the year and the team’s offence came to his aid.
After Coleman tied the game 9:36 into the second, Kaden Bryant scored on the powerplay less than two minutes later to give Dauphin a 2-1 lead. Colby Jaquet, Nakodan Greyeyes, Luke Morris and Nolan Wickham would score third period goals as Dauphin skated off with a convincing 6-1 win.
The two teams will meet for game four on Monday night, a game you can hear on 730CKDM with Darnell Duff.
