(WINDSOR, ON) – The Kingsville Kings outshot the Windsor Aces at Adie Knox Arena Saturday night en route to an 8-3 final in front of a small but boisterous crowd. The loss extended Windsor’s loosing streak to 5 games while the Kings trail St George by just 2 points for top spot in the GMHL south division.

The Aces opened the scoring at 5:34 of the 1st period on an Alec Segers tally. Then the Kings got to work with 3 unanswered goals in 8 minutes to close the first 20 minutes. Petr Panacek drew Kingsville even before Elvar Olafsson and Daniel Krizek each connected on a 5-minute power play with Windsor’s Yaroslav Blokhin in the box for checking from behind.

David Vostarek, Jakub Hendrych, and Krizek, again on the power play, doubled the score for Kingsville in the 2nd period before Segers stemmed the bleeding with his second of the night.

In the 3rd frame, Panacek notched his second, an unassisted effort, and Nicholas Lang with a man advantage, closed out the Kingsville scoring. Windsor’s Alex Campbell managed to beat the Kings’ goaltender, 19 year-old Windsor native Pierce Dubowski, with less than 20 seconds to play.

Raymond Smith was peppered with 59 by the Kings snipers and took the lose in goal for Windsor.

Vostarek staked Kingsville to a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes, then Blake Naida and a second by Vostarek in the 2nd period extended the margin to 3-0. In the 3rd period, Filip Kafka and Lang piled on for the Kings.
