Sr. Klippers blank Miners
The Kindersley Sr. Klippers and Unity Miners battled it out Saturday night in the Klippers only game of the weekend. Kindersley got on the board just shy of the halfway point of the first period, as Jace Reichert got his 1st of the season, with the assist going to Kasim Basharah. The Klippers then doubled their lead just over four minutes later, as Jonny Calkins started his big night, with his 7th of the season. The assists went to Kyle Donaldson and Jared Erickson. The second period saw some chippy play early on, as Erickson boarded one of the Miners in the defensive zone corner, causing a scrum with the Miners Carter Acton jumping in. Then at the end of the period, the Miners Davis Chorney and Klippers Byron Ismond dropped the gloves in a spirited tussle, as the Klippers maintained their two goal lead heading into the third period. Kindersley put this game away early in the third, as Kyle Donaldson finished a nice passing play from Calkins and Nik Fomradas to give the Klippers a 3-0 lead. Then less then two minutes later, Jesse Pocock stole a pass from one of the Miners in the offensive zone and found captain Troy Boisjoli and he beat Ryan Rewarts to make it 4-0. The goal was Boisjoli's 4th of the season. Then just over the halfway point of the third Calkins came in on a 2-on-1 rush was Lane Gilliss, walked in the left wing side and beat Rewarts upstairs for his second of the night and 8th of the season. Gilliss and Fomradas picked up the assists to make the score 5-0 and that is the way the game ended. Kindersley was without both Shayne Neigum and Brody Ryberg who were sitting out suspensions, and Neigum will not be able to return until December 16 against the Edam 3 Stars. Ryberg will be able to return on December 15 versus Hafford, which is the Klippers next game on the schedule.
