It was a tough start for the Dauphin Kings and the ending wasn’t much better on Friday night.
The Neepawa Titans scored just three minutes into the contest and they ended up cruising to a 5-1 win on home ice at the Yellowhead Centre.
Dauphin fell down 3-0 in the game before Tyson Pauze found the back of the net to give the Kings some life. However, that was it. The Titans would score two more for the convincing win.
