Midget Kings down two heading into Friday’s game

The Prestige Construction Midget Kings have yet to find the winning formula in their regular season, dropping two more games over the weekend.
There were some good signs as the Kings had a strong, two-period road performance versus the league-leading Ennismore Eagles on Friday night.  The Eagles scored in the first period before Jake Staley tied it up for the road-crew on an unassisted effort in the second frame.  Ennismore took the lead at 10:19 of the third period while playing with the man advantage and added another just a minute and half later to make it 3-1.  With Kings net minder Alex Ward on the bench, the home team scored an empty-netter in the last minute to make it a 4-1 final.

On Saturday night the Kings were back home in Picton to face the Loyalist Jets and despite taking the play to their opponents, they couldn’t score and found themselves down by a goal at the end of period one. There was no scoring in the second period but Scott McQuaid tied things up at 13:48 of the third on a feed from Seth VanVlack and Bryce VanGrootheest.  Then at 9:46 Ben Wilson found Ryan Jones in the slot and he made no mistake, giving the Kings a 2-1 lead.  The Jets pulled their goalie and tied things at two with 1:04 on the clock, then took advantage of sloppy Kings defending to score the 3-2 winner with just over sixteen seconds remaining.  Kings goalie Brad Wells played a solid game and deserved a better outcome.

The Midget Kings are back in action on Friday night at 7p.m. in Wellington when they host Ennismore.
