On a night where the Dauphin Kings put up 62 shots through 65 minutes, they couldn’t get more than a point.
Ste. Rose’s Brad Marshall scored the lone goal in the shootout to give Neepawa their first win of the season as they beat Dauphin, 6-5.
It took Neepawa just 10 seconds to score on the night. Kadin Ilott responded for Dauphin and Nakodan Greyeyes also scored in the first but Neepawa had a 3-2 lead after 20.
Former Parkland Ranger Jaeger Lapointe had one of the goals in his return to Dauphin. Brad Marshall also scored.
Up 3-2, Neepawa doubled their lead early in the second. Avery Smith and Cole Dekoninck scored, however, as the game was tied at four after 40.
Neepawa went on to regain their lead in the third, but they couldn’t hold on. With just more than four minutes left, Grady Hobbs tied the game at five and pushed it into overtime.
After nothing happened in overtime goals wise, Marshall scored the lone goal in the shootout to give Neepawa their first win of the season.
Dauphin drops to 1-5-0-1 on the season. They’re in Selkirk on Friday, Steinbach on Saturday, and Winnipeg on Sunday. Darnell Duff will have the call of all three games.
