The Morinville Kings defeated the Slave Lake Winter Hawks 10-2 in the first game of a best-of-five round one series Saturday night. The Kings built steadily from a 3-1 period one lead to an 8-2 gap by the end of the second period. The Kings kept the Winter Hawks scoreless in the final frame, adding another two for themselves in the final 20.
The Kings were joined by the Sturgeon Atom B Mustangs, a team they had offered some mentoring and hockey tips to last Sunday night.
Game two will be played in Salve Lake Friday night. The Kings return to home ice Saturday night at 5:45 p.m. for game three.
