KINGS SEASON COMES TO AN END
Your Penetang Kings have just wrapped up their first round against the fifth place Caledon Golden Hawks in a very intense four game sweep. In the regular season, we split the series 2-2 and in the last game of the year we hosted Caledon and lost 3-2 in a hard fought game that had to be decided in a shoot-out. In the opening game of the series we wanted to set the tone and came out playing Kings hockey right from the opening face-off; after three periods and scoring into an open net, we sealed a 3-1 win.
Game two was in Caledon and after the first 10 minutes we broke a 1-1 tie and went on to score four unanswered goals to take game two 5-1. Game three was back at home and this was the best game we played as a team in this series, as we scored six straight goals; our PK was spotless as Caledon went 0 for 8 and we were able to capitalize on three of our PP with the only blemish coming with 3 seconds left in the game to make it a 6-1 final.
We went back to Caledon for game four with the intent to try to wrap up the series. We knew we were going to get their best game as both teams battled to a 2-2 draw in the first. We came out flat in the second and they took full advantage taking a 5-2 lead going into the third. In the third period your Penetang Kings were back to playing Kings hockey and stormed back to tie the game 5-5 heading into overtime. We didn't take our foot off the gas as we continued to push the pace and at your Kings swept the series in four straight games. In this series we had 17 players record a point. Everyone stepped up on our special teams and on the defensive side of the puck; doing all the little things that don't show up on the score sheet to make it a complete team victory and we will continue to play KINGS HOCKEY.
