After taking down the Westlock Warriors in four games, the Morinville Senior AA Kings entered round two playoffs over the weekend against Daysland and emerged with back-to-back wins.
The Kings hit the road Saturday night and built steadily from a 2-1 first-period lead to double the tally to 4-2 after two. The final frame saw both sides add another three goals to the board for a 7-5 finish.
Hitting home ice Sunday afternoon, the Kings once again took the day, this time building from a 1-0 opener to a 4-1 lead after 40 minutes. Another pair in the final frame gave the Kings game two and a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
Game three will be played on the road Feb. 17, and if game four is required, it will be played in Morinville Feb. 24 at 8 p.m.
