Kings Lose Penalty Filled Affair

January 28, 2016

The Dauphin Kings battled some tough adversity and ended up coming out on the losing end Thursday night in a 5-3 loss to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines.

After going down 1-0 in the early stages of the first period the Kings responded with two quick goals to go up 2-1. The teams then traded goals as the contest went on and ended up tied 3-3 heading into the final frame.

Dauphin got goals from Keaton Leininger (13), Daniel Chartrand (5) and Trevor Kavanaugh (6).

Wayway got two goals in the third to pull away and take the two points. 

Early in the second period the Kings had a goal waived off, it would have been their fourth to take a 4-3 lead but the officials called it off because of too many men. Dauphin then recieved a penalty for that. Later on Oliver Lester took a slashing penalty.

Things got very testy following a number of shenanigans in the second period. It seemed to boil over a bit after Hayden Pierce made an open ice hit on Wayway’s Brayden Cullum. Cullum left the game with obvious concussion symptoms. I did not see the hit, so I can’t really comment on it.

Overall I don’t really want to comment much on the officiating for Thursday’s game. All I will say is it was one of the worst called games I have seen since game four of the Sher-Wood Division Semi Finals between the Winnipeg Saints and Kings back in 2012.

According to the MJHL Website the Kings finished the night 0 for 4 on the Power Play while Waywayseecappo was 3 for 10. In total there were 73 minutes in penalties with three game misconducts. Forty-nine of those 73 penalty minutes went to the Kings, which is about 67%. Pierce, who recieved a Match Penalty, automatically gets a three game suspension. 

Brandon Holtby took the loss between the pipes, stopping 36 of 41 shots, the Kings had 21.

The loss is Dauphin’s fourth straight and puts them at 16-27-2 on the MJHL season. They’ll look to rebound on Sunday when they skate with the OCN Blizzard at Credit Union Place. Game time is 7:00pm!
