Kings take game in shootout

The Morinville Senior AA Kings were on the road Friday night in Whitecourt and returned with two points for their 3-2 shootout victory over the Wild.

Friday’s six-shooter victory brings the Kings to a 5-3-0 standing roughly a quarter of the way through the season. They are tied with Daysland for second place; however, have played two more games this season.

The Kings hit the ice at home against Daysland Dec. 9 at 8:30 p.m.

Jets one for two

The Morinville Jets fell 7-2 to the Stony Plain Flyers on the road Friday night and took on the East Division-leading Wetaskiwin Icemen at home Sunday night, a contest they emerged from with an impressive 4-2 win.

During the game, three of the Jets four goals were unassisted contributions.

The weekend’s two points bring the Jets to a 13-7-1 record this season, one point and two games behind the second-place St. Albert Merchants.

The Jets play the Mustangs on the road Wednesday night and take on the North Edmonton Red Wings at home Sunday night at 7:15 p.m.
