Having only won a point from their opening two matches, King scored four and British teammate Sean Ryder added two as Weiden held SG W98/Waspo Hanover to an 8-8 draw on Saturday night.
King and Ryder repeated their scoring form 24 hours later scoring four and two respectively as Weiden downed Jake Vincent’s SV 08 Bayer Uerdingen 12-9 to stretch their unbeaten run to three.
Vincent’s side also came unstuck against teammate Glen Robinson’s SV Würzburg with the latter scoring two in a 7-6 victory while Will Middleton scored in both matches as SC Wedding Berlin lost to league leaders Spandau 04 Berlin (20-6) and ASC Duisburg (12-8).
Elsewhere, it was a good weekend for the British goalkeepers as Ed Scott and Matt Holland both secured victories at their respective domestic clubs in Europe.
Scott was between the sticks for CE Mediterrani in the Spanish Division de Honor as they recorded their second victory of the season with an 8-5 defeat of CN Terrassa.
Rob Parker played for the visitors who stood toe-to-toe with Mediterrani, locked 5-5 at the half-way point before third and fourth quarter shut-outs saw Scott’s team home as they jumped to eighth in the league.
Meanwhile, Holland’s Aix en Provence picked up their first victory of the season in the French Elite League.
Holland’s side travelled to newly-promoted Noisy-le-Sec and came away with an 11-7 win to move seventh in the division.
Craig Figes scored twice on his debut for new side Simply Sport Pescara. The British captain impressed but couldn't prevent Pescara slipping to a 9-7 defeat in their opening match of the season in the Italian Serie A2 South.
Joe O’Regan and Adam Scholefield also found the net for PVSK-Fuszert as they slipped to a 12-7 defeat at third-placed Szolnoki Dózsa-KÖZGÉP in the Hungarian Vodafone OB I league.
Finally, in Spanish Division de Honor, Ric Lawlor scored once and Mike Bourne played as CN Turia lost 23-4 at league leaders and defending champions CN Atletic Barceloneta while Jack Waller’s Sant Andreu lost 13-10 at home to CN Mataro Quadis.
