The Dauphin Kings battled back but it was a battle that came up just short.

Wrapping up a home-and-home with the Steinbach Pistons, the road team jumped out to a 3-0 lead and they didn’t look back as they downed the Kings, 5-3 on Saturday night.

In a game that started 60 minutes later than originally scheduled, Dauphin got out to a slow start and ultimately, they couldn’t rebound as they lost for a second straight night.

Dauphin’s Garrett Hrechka scored a goal for the Kings while Luke Morris and Owen Wareham also scored a single for Dauphin in the defeat.

Despite the loss, Dauphin is now 20-6 on the season and they lead the West Division and are just one point behind Steinbach for first place overall.

Next up for the team is a home-and-home with the Winnipeg Blues next weekend.

King Tips:

  • Dauphin has now lost two straight games for the first game this season
  • Dauphin went 0-for-2 on the man advantage while Steinbach converted on one of their three chances
  • Jack Rogers had a tremendous game for Dauphin, registering one goal and two assists
  • Carson Cherepak was pulled for the first time this season, making eight saves on 11 shots
