Costly Mistakes

January 22, 2016


The Dauphin Kings battled back to make a 3-0 deficit 3-2 in the third period but they couldn’t complete the comeback in a 5-2 loss to the Portage Terriers Friday night at Credit Union Place.

Dauphin gave up two goals in the first 20 minutes to go down after the opening period. The first, I thought, was quite even with Portage out shooting Dauphin 9-8. The difference was the Terriers finished on their scoring chances. After falling behind 3-0 in the mid stages of the second period Dauphin got on the board when Kirklan Lycar notched his 17th of the season.

The Kings played strong in the final frame, getting the game to a one goal difference when Chance Thomas tallied his 14th. However a couple bad mistakes and giving one of the best players in the MJHL a breakaway in the third period costed Dauphin their first loss at home in 2016.

Brandon Holtby (8-20) was good between the pipes for the Kings. He kept the club in the tilt, making a number of key saves throughout the night. He turned aside 25 of the 30 shots he faced. The Kings put 23 on Portage’s Nathan Park.

Brad Bowles, who scored on a shorthanded breakaway in the third period, led players in points on Friday. He had one goal and two assists while Chase Faulkner had two goals for Portage.

Power Plays saw both teams going 0 for 4.

As mentioned the loss is Dauphin’s first at Credit Union Place in 2016, they’re now 16-24-2 on the season and remain ninth in the standings. The Kings will get a shot at bouncing back Saturday night when they entertain Steinbach for Ukrainian Night. Opening face off is 7:00pm.
