Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League


The Kindersley Jr. A Klippers were in Estevan for the Thanksgiving long weekend and managed to collect 3 of a possible 4 points on their quick two game swing.

Things started off well for Kindersley Friday, with Tylin Hilbig scoring just over the halfway point of the opening period, to give the Klippers a 1-0 lead.

Kindersley doubled that lead at halfway point of the second period, as Nolan Smith got his first as a Klipper.

Estevan answered back just over six minutes later, as veteran Owen Barrow lit the lamp to cut into the Klippers lead.

The Bruins keep things coming early in the third period, as Flexid Allard got two goals in just over two and a half minutes, to give Estevan a 3-2 lead.

The Klippers managed to tie the score at 12:10 of the third, on a goal by Zakery Anderson, his first as a Klipper.

That is the way things stayed until the shootout, as the Bruins Allard was the only player to light the lamp in the shootout, giving the Bruins a 4-3 shootout win.

Estevan goaltender Cam Hrdlicka stole this game for the Bruins making 41 saves on 44 shots to give his team a chance to win.

Kindersley looked for some revenge on Saturday, and once again scored the first two goals in this one, with Logan Cox and Keenan Ingram scoring early one in period one. Undeterred, the Bruins came back and tied the score on goals by Dillon Jackson and Kaelen Whittingham.

Estevan kept coming early in the second period, as Jack Piper gave the Bruins a 3-2 lead just over three minutes in. Kindersley answered back just over halfway through the period, with Tylin Hilbig scoring his third goal of the season, to even the score at three.

The Klippers then got the game winner in the early stages of the third period, with Austin Osiowy collecting his second of the season, and Kindersley held on for a 4-3 victory.

The goal for Keenan Ingram was his first in the SJHL, and Cody Jaman was solid in the net for Kindersley, making 36 saves on 39 shots for the win.

The Klippers will finally home this weekend, as they will host a pair of games against the 6-0 Melfort Mustangs on Friday and Saturday. Both games will begin at 7:30 pm at the West Central Events Centre.
