Dresden Kings Alone In First
The Kings now sit 3 points ahead of second place Essex, with 54 points.
Dresden’s climb to the top started last Tuesday, when they shutout that same Essex team 1-0, followed by a win Friday night at home against Wallaceburg, Saturday in Mooretown, and Sunday against the Blenheim Blades.
In Sunday’s win, a 4-2 decision, Blenheim jumped on the board first, only 39 seconds into the game as Drew Marlatt potted his 14th of the season.
Dresden however would bounced back, with Nolan Vandenboorn scoring to tie the game.
Vandenboorn would add another in the second frame, to send the Kings to the third leading by one.
In the third period, Derek Shaw added to Dresden’s lead before Blenheim pulled within one again on a Bryce Broad goal.
Kings defender Brady Hogg would ice the game with less than a minute to go however, sliding one into the empty net.
The Dresden Kings have two game remaining before playoffs, facing Petrolia and Wheatley.
