Kings fall again to Neepawa, 3-2

The Dauphin Kings once again had several chances late, but for the second straight night they failed to capitalize as the Neepawa Natives swept the home and home series with the Kings by winning, 3-2 on Wednesday night in Neepawa.

1st Period

It didn't take the Natives long to score in the first frame, as just 4:38 seconds in, Benoit Mowbray took a pass from Lewis Negrich and put it past Brady Weiss as Neepawa took a 1-0 lead.

Under three minutes later, Riese Gaber continued his impressive preseason as he sniped a shot past Noah Morin with Brendan Arnold picking up the assist as the Kings tied the game at one.

Then under 10 minutes later, Kyle Oleksiuk walked out into the slot and sniped a shot low side past Morin as the Kings led 2-1 after one period.

2nd Period

Neepawa didn't trail long in the second period, as one of their most dangerous players, Justin Metcalf tied the game just one minute into the period.

The game stayed tied at two until the 16:38 mark when Jordan Martin got a shot past Parker Waseylenko as Neepawa took a 3-2 lead, and that's where it stood after 40 minutes.

3rd Period

The third period provided lots of physicality, bad blood, but no goals as the Neepawa Natives earned a win for the second straight night.

Game Facts

Both teams recorded 27 shots in the game.

Dauphin went 1-5 on the power play, and Neepawa went 0-3.
