The Morinville Senior AA Kings had a rough night in their home barn Saturday, falling 5-1 to the visiting Camrose Crush.

It was anybody’s game for the first 40 minutes with the Kings and Crush scoreless after one, but tied 1-1 after two. The final frame saw the Crush advance by one early in the period, a goal that was evened up by the mid-period mark. But the final 10 minutes gave the Crush three more goals, including one with 22 seconds on the clock into the Kings’ empty net.

The weekend loss brings the Kings to 8-4-1 and third place in the league.

The Kings play their last regular-season game Saturday, Jan. 29 at home at 8 p.m. against the Bonnyville Pontiacs.
