Kings win on the road
The Morinville Kings travelled to Slave Lake Sunday afternoon to take on the Winterhawks in their second matchup of the season. The Kings emerged from that outing with a 12-1 victory, their second win against the struggling club.
Just as they had in their 6-3 win over Slave Lake Oct. 17, Morinville once again won the game by a good margin, building from a 3-1 lead after 20 to a 9-1 lead after two periods. Another three goals in the final frame gave the Kings an 11-goal margin.
The Kings take to the road Friday night to face the Rocky Rams at 8 p.m., and head to Westlock a week later to face the Warriors once again. Game time is 8:30 p.m. at the Westlock Rotart Spirit Centre.
