Owen Wareham is the captain of the Dauphin Kings and on Saturday, he played the role of hero.

On a power play late in overtime against the Winkler Flyers, Wareham beat Aidan Comeau to give the Kings a 3-2 thrilling win to end the weekend.

It was a great response win for Dauphin after they struggled in a loss on Saturday night. Deepkaran continued his strong play with the Kings as he scored his eighth of the season.

Also scoring for Dauphin was Carter Zalischuk and the hometown boy looked great overall in the victory over the third-place team in the East Division.

Marko Belak was outstanding in net for Dauphin as he made 24 saves to pick up the win as Dauphin has 12 wins as the league takes a small pause for the MJHL Top Prospects Showcase which takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday at Stride Place in Portage.

With the win, Dauphin is now 12-8-2 and they’re back into second place in the highly competitive West Division with 26 points, one point ahead of Waywayseecappo.

Dauphin is back in action on Friday when they welcome the Winnipeg Freeze to town.
