Regular season play carried on for the NobleKing Knights all weekend at both the King City and Nobleton arenas.
On Saturday morning, the tyke 1 and 2 teams were in action and played some exciting hockey against teams from Innisfil and Beeton.
The tyke 1 team was up first against the Beeton Stingers and turned that game into a high scoring barn-burner.
Both teams went back and forth at each other, running the score up to 8-8. Each team feverishly tried to score the go-ahead goal, but the score ended in a tie.
Up next was the tyke 2 team, who welcomed the Innisfil Winterhawks 2 team to the King City arena.
The team, who just completed a fantastic week with two wins, a tie and a loss, were looking to keep the momentum going against the Winterhawks.
Looking to take control right away, the Knights advanced upon the Winterhawks goalie and took a 1-0 just over a minute into the game.
Dante Alaimo was the one who scored for the Knights, while Carson D’Ulisse was credited with the assist.
However, the Winterhawks was also looking for an early goal and equalized less than a minute later.
Innisfil added another to take a 2-1 lead before the end of the first period, but the Knights did not let up.
In the second and the third periods, the Knights kept pushing to get back on the scoreboard, but the Innisfil goalie made some huge stops in net to keep his team ahead.
The Winterhawks added two more and won that game, but the Knights are still happy with the way they have been playing as of late.
“We’re doing better than expected,” said Knights tyke 2 coach Dave Henderson. “The kids have all improved so much and it has been a great season for us. The kids are loving it and we’re doing awesome.”
The team will keep up regular season play until playoffs start sometime in March.
