Midget Kings undefeated in tournament division win

The Prestige Construction Midget Kings enjoyed a great weekend at home, going undefeated on the way to winning their division win at the PECMHA “RECHARGE WITH MILK” Tournament.

On Friday night the Kings met up with the very familiar Loyalist Jets in game one of the round-robin and came away with a 1-1 tie.  Seth VanVlack scored the lone home-team marker on a feed from Kevin Rallison while Brad Wells patrolled the Kings crease.

Game two on Saturday night was against a determined squad from Blyth-Brussells and despite good scoring chances at both ends, neither team could solve the solid goaltending and the tilt ended in a scoreless tie.  Alex Ward earned the shut-out for the Kings.

The Kings needed a win in game three on Sunday morning against Mount Brydges to ensure a place in the final, so that’s just what they did with a strong 3-1 performance.  Jake Staley and Rallison scored in the second period and VanVlack added some insurance in the third frame.  Jordan Terpstra, VanVlack and Robert Stapley collected assists and Wells played another strong game in the Kings cage.

The win set up a meeting with Blyth-Brussells in the championship game on Sunday afternoon.  The Kings got on the board late in the first period when Brad Reid cleared a puck that found Dallas Hunter on the other side of the red line.  Hunter rushed in and beat the opposing goalie to give the Kings a 1-0 lead that lasted until 6:06 of the third.  That’s when Hunter scored an insurance marker, this time on a feed from Staley.  The goal proved very important as Blyth-Brussells scored with just over two minutes left in the game to make it interesting.  The Kings weathered a few late flurries to preserve the 2-1 win and take the Midget title.  Kings keeper Alex Ward was named the Essroc MVP of the final game by the visiting coaches.
The Kings next home game is Friday, November 9th at 7 pm when the face Port Hope in Wellington.
