The wins keep piling up for the Dennis GM Western Kings.

The latest victim was the Central IcePak, as the Kings took all three games over the weekend in provincial major midget hockey league play.

On Sunday at the Corner Brook Civic Centre, Brady Parsons netted the winner, his first goal as a major midget, in a 5-3 triumph for the home side.

Drew Cornick, Liam Smith, Tristan Dower Nichols and Adrian Ward also found the back of the net in the victory.

Philip Pardy, Joseph Toope and Stephen Baldwin provided the offence in the losing cause.

Kirklin Young backstopped the win, while Will Brown took the loss at the other end of the ice. Brown was the busier of the two, however, as the Kings outshot the IcePak 46-16.

The weekend series opened in Lewisporte on Friday night, with the Kings earning a convincing 7-2 triumph on the strength of a remarkable five-goal night from Liam Smith.

Drew Cornick and Kyle Robinson did the rest, while Kris Thomas picked up four assists.

Philip Pardy and Jeff Fewer were the marksmen in the loss.

Young again notched the victory between the pipes, with Brown coming up on the losing side.

The Kings held the shot advantage 35-17.

On Saturday in Corner Brook, the Kings trounced the IcePak 9-2 in a game that saw seven different scorers and 14 different players pick up points for the victors.

Adrian Ward (2), Kris Thomas (2), Liam Smith, Jacob Oake, Skyler Coates, Tristan Dower Nichols and Andrew Antle all got on the board in the win.

Central goalscorers were not available as of press time.

Lucas Park was the winning netminder in this one, while Jack Cameron suffered the loss.

The Kings again ruled the shot clock, with a 55-11 edge.

The team is idle this weekend before hitting the road to tangle with the St. John’s Maple Leafs on Oct. 7-8.
