Steelers Slip Past Kings

SELKIRK, MB - The Dauphin Kings battled back from a 2-0 deficit Friday night but they couldn't get the game to overtime in a 3-2 loss to the Selkirk Steelers.

The opening 20 minutes was slow with Selkirk scoring the lone goal of the frame. The Steelers also had three power plays in the first to Dauphin's zero. You could see the Kings were a little behind the play after having four days off.

In the second period Selkirk took their lead to 2-0 before the Kings started to come on. Avery Smith would notch his first in the MJHL to get Dauphin within one in the last minute of the second.

The final period saw the Kings in control for most of the 20 minutes. They hit two posts before Jacob Evans tied the game up with just over a minute to play. The tie was short lived however, as Riley Shamray was called on a questionable closing the hand on the puck penalty with 1:09 to play. The Steelers would score with just over seven seconds remaining to take the contest.

Brennan Kitchen was solid between the pipes, but suffered the loss with 43 saves on 46 shots. The Kings fired 43 shots on the Selkirk net.

The Kings will regroup and look for a better game Saturday when they go south of Winnipeg to skate with the Steinbach Pistons. Game time is 7:30pm. Dauphin's record slips to 2-1-0 on the young season with the loss.
