The Morinville Kings took their first loss Saturday night, a 6-5 OT loss to the Eckville Eagles on home ice. Saturday’s loss brings the King’s record to 3-0-1 so far.
The game was the Kings all the way in the first as the Senior AA club lead Eckville 3-0 after one. Although Eckville pounded back with four in the middle frame, the King’s contribution that period meant a 4-4 tie heading into the third. Another equal effort on both sides of the centre line meant a 5-5 tie to send it to overtime.
Eckville took at 3:26 in OT to leave the Kings with a point for their troubles.
The Kings take to the road Oct. 27 to face the Whitecourt Wild.
