The Kindersley Jr. A Klippers have a short-turnaround ahead of them after two losses on the weekend to the division leading Humboldt Broncos. After a loss on Friday night at home, and another defeat Saturday in Humboldt, the Nipawin Hawks will be in town for a Halloween showdown on Tuesday.
Friday's game at the West Central Events Centre got off to a fast start as the Broncos led the Klippers 2-1 going into the first intermission. Four second period goals from the Broncos gave the road side a commanding 6-1 lead headed into the third period, where the only scoring came courtesy Zakery Anderson and Alex Mack to make it a 6-3 final.
Saturday's game was much better for the Klippers off the hop as Easton Inglis' lone goal during the period had the Klippers up early. After battling it out to start the second period, the Broncos scored two goals in a three minute span to take the lead. It finished a 2-1 game as the Klippers dropped their fifth game in a row.
Positives out of the two games for the Klippers included Alex Mack picking up a multi-point effort on Friday with his goal and also assist on Kayden Ostrom's goal to end the first period. In Saturday's road game the team was helped out mightily by Logan Falk's efforts in net. Falk stopped 38 of 40 shots, with the two goal stretch in the second period being his only blip on the radar for the night.
As mentioned Kindersley will be back on the ice against Nipawin for a special Halloween game on Tuesday at the WCEC. Fans should make sure to wear their Halloween costumes to the game with some fun plans on deck. After that the Klippers will have to wait until Saturday for their next game when the Yorkton Terriers are in town, another promotional night at the rink in the Goals for KidSport game.
