Dauphin Kings take the lead at RBC Cup

  • Print

The Dauphin Kings are off to a hot start at the RBC Cup, clinching their first two matches to take the lead in the tournament standings.

The Kings bested the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots 2-1 on Saturday, and followed that up with a 4-3 overtime win over the Carleton Place Canadians on Sunday at Kal Tire Place in Vernon, B.C. Forward Brent Wold proved the overtime hero for Dauphin in that game, notching the winner at 8:37 of the extra period.

Of the five teams in the tournament, only the Kings remained unbeaten on Sunday, as the Vernon Vipers and the Yorkton Terriers lost their first games. The top four teams will move on to the semifinals on Saturday, with the RBC Cup championship game slated for Sunday. Preliminary games continue through Thursday, with the Kings set to face the Vernon Vipers on Tuesday night.

No Manitoba team has won the RBC Cup since its inception in 1996, though the Kings were runners-up for the Cup when they hosted the tournament in 2010. They advanced into the nationals this year after finishing second at the Western Canada Cup, a spot which earns a berth to the RBC Cup tournament.
