Dauphin, MB – The Virden Oil Capitals picked up their fourth win of the MJHL pre-season Friday night, beating Dauphin 4-2. 

Four different goal scorers helped the Caps battle back from down 2-1 in the middle frame to take the win. 

The Winnipeg boys connected to open the scoring for Virden as Jake Dudar took a pass from Dylan Theissen and notched his 3rd of the exhibition season. 

Dauphin would tie it up moments later as Kirklan Lycar found the back of the net on a Kings power play. 

Chance Thomas would give the Kings a 2-1 lead with the lone goal of the middle frame, Logan Nelson and Zac Boyle picked up assists. 

The Oil Caps came out flying in the third, potting three goals in a six minute span. 

Dylan Thiessen found the back of the net just 43 seconds into the frame. Less than two minutes later it was Tanner Lewis notching his first of the pre-season. 

Tyler Ham would round out the scoring three minutes later for his first of the pre-season as well. 

The Oil Caps and Kings will square off again tonight in Virden. Game time at TOGP is 7:30.
