The Kindersley Jr. Klippers and Melville Millionaires played a high scoring game Wednesday night at the Horizon Credit Union Centre which saw Melville double up the Klippers 6-3. Kindersley fell behind early on a sharp angle shot by Louis-Fredric Theberge for his third of the season. The teams went back and forth in the opening period and the Klippers got a chance in the slot, as the puck squirted out to Rosetown product Kayden Ostrom. He beat Clement Labillois to tie the score on a nice shot for his fifth of the season.
The second period saw the Klippers take the lead on a nice rush by Logan Cox and he went to the backhand to beat Labillois for his eighth of the season about halfway through. Kindersley kept coming on a nice play by Spencer Paplawski as he stole a clearing pass, fought through a check and dished off to brother Adam and he scored his sixth of the season. But Theberge got his second of the night on a seeing eye shot to cut the Klippers lead to one.
The third period was all Melville. Thanks to a timely save by Labillois, he kept the score at 3-2 on a nice point blank save. Melville came down and tied not long after, as Carter McKay got his sixth of the season. Then just over two minutes later the Millionaires took the lead for good on a scramble, as McKay found the loose puck and beat Logan Falk as a high sticking penalty to Logan Linklater had just expired. They added one more on a nice rush by Nicholas Andrusiak, as he skated around the net and found Colby Ball off the bench at the right point and he went upstairs on Falk. Melville added an empty netter by Aiden Robson.
Kindersley will have tomorrow off before playing the Terriers once again Friday evening. The puck drop from the Westland Arena will be 7:00 pm, with the Murlin Electronics pregame show starting at 6:45 pm. Klippers forward Logan Cox was injured in this game and did not return.
