On Sunday morning, the Kings were propelled to victory thanks in part to a hat trick scored by Kurtis Kinoshita, as well as a few singles scored by Charlie Kehl, Maddux Martin and Pastro. The final was 6-3.

With these wins the Kings pulled themselves within one point of the league-leading Central Zone Rockets. If the Kings can pick up four more points against the last place Yukon Rivermen on Friday night and Saturday, Feb. 7-8, in Enderby, they will be the BC Hockey Zone Program regular season champions.
