Kings win thriller, stay in first

Carson Cherepak had another exceptional game on Saturday night as he propelled the Kings to another victory.

Playing the back end of a home-and-home against the Stampeders, the star goaltender made 36 saves as Dauphin won in a shootout, 2-1.

The Winnipeg 19-year-old also went 3-for-3 in the shootout as Dauphin earned the extra point. Kaden Bryant scored the game-winner in the shootout.

After falling behind, Dauphin’s third line went to work. Jayden Harris streaked in the zone down the left side and outlasted a defender and passed it in front to Parker Fofonoff who did the rest. It was Parker’s second goal of the season.

Dauphin now moves to 14-4 on the season and they remain in first place in the West Division.

The same two teams will play another home-and-home next weekend with Friday’s game being at the Centennial Arena.
