The Morinville Kings played a pair of games over the weekend, a Saturday night road trip to Devon to face the Barons and a Sunday afternoon outing against the Eckville Eagles.
Saturday night’s road game was an easy 5-2 win for the Morinville Kings, built in the third period. The Kings started the game with a 1-0 lead to end the first but gave away their ground in the middle frame when the Barons evened the score with a power-play chance eight minutes in. But the third period gave the Kings four, half of those from Cole Cavell 20 seconds apart from one another.
Sunday afternoon gave the Kings another win, this time against Eckville. The Kings pulled ahead from a 1-1 first period to a 4-2 second and a 7-3 finish.
The Kings have two more games before Christmas break. They play at home Saturday night against Bonnyville at 8:30 p.m. and again on the 17th at 8:30 p.m. against the Edson Ice.
