Dauphin, Canada

The Dauphin Kings 50th Anniversary Season has reached its final game as the team gets set to battle with the Virden Oil Capitals tonight in Virden.

In five previous meetings between the two clubs, it's been all Oil Capitals as they've scored 40 goals, while the Kings have mustered 13.

The Kings (14-43-1-1) will look to rebound after a 10-4 loss last night against Swan Valley, while tonight's game is a huge one for the Oil Capitals.

With a win tonight, the Oil Capitals (39-17-2-1) would clinch the second spot in the league heading into the playoffs, while a loss and a Portage win would mean Virden would enter the playoffs as the three seed.

After scoring in three straight games, Kyle Oleksiuk's point streak was snapped last night.

Offensively the Oil Capitals have the second most goals in the league behind the Pistons.

You can hear all the action tonight in the season finale right here on 730CKDM beginning with the pregame show with Darnell Duff just before 7:20.

Sifton's Kelton Amendt will be competing in six events at the Manitoba Winter Games in Thompson when his events starts on March 7.

"I'm really looking forward to the 50M breaststroke, and the 100M IM," said Kelton. "I'm really excited to go to the Games."

Kelton has prior Games experience, after competing in the Manitoba Summer Games in 2016.

"That was a great experience," said Kelton. "Now I can't wait to experience the Winter Games, and meet some new people."

The 13-year-old just recovered from an injury, but he isn't making that an excuse heading into the Games.

"I've been training really hard," said Kelton. "So, I'm hoping it all pays off."

Kelton also notes he's ready to swim his best.




Sifton will have some representation at this year's Manitoba Winter Games in Thompson as Rhea Amendt is set to compete in the swimming competition.

"I've never competed in the Games before," said Rhea. "So, I'm really excited about this opportunity."

At just 12-years-old, Rhea who swims with the Parkland Gators will be one of the youngest competitors in the swimming competition and event in general but she's ready for the challenge.

"My goal is to get better times in each race I take part in," said Rhea. "I'm going to try my hardest, and I've been training a lot, so hopefully I can get some really good times."

The swimming competition gets underway on March 7, and Rhea says she can't for the 50M freestyle race, and the chance to meet new people.

The Manitoba Winter Games Opening Ceremonies take place this Sunday.




At just 12-years-old, Dauphin's Breken Brezden has had a very successful figure skating career, and now she's taking her talents to the Manitoba Winter Games.

"I am super excited to head to the Games," said Brezden. "It's going to be fun."

The selection committee chose Breken as one of the competitors in the U-16 women's competition based on her past results at various events.

"I'm just hoping I can do the best I can do," said Brezden. "I just have to give it my best, and not worry about what the other skaters are doing."

This will be Brezden's first appearance at a Manitoba Winter Games, and she can't wait for the Games to begin.

"I'm really looking forward to the whole experience that will come out of this event," said Brezden. "It's going to be so much fun to spend time with my team, and watching other events as well."

Brezden notes this event will help her going forward for future events because the team is always pushing each other to compete at the highest of their abilities.

The Dauphin Clippers are one win away from playing for a Championship.

The Clippers and Raiders will hook up tonight in game two of the best of three series, and after a big comeback win yesterday, the Clippers can win the series with a win tonight.

Hunter Glover was the star last night scoring three times including the game-winner. 

Dating back to the regular season, the Clippers have now beat Killarney twice and both were by one goal apiece.
