The Western Prairie Junior Klippers traveled down to southeast Saskatchewan for a pair of SJFHL games over the weekend, unfortunately walking away winless, ahead of a key doubleheader next weekend.
The road-trip started with a loss on Saturday night in Regina against the Junior Rebels. The Klippers faced an early 2-0 deficit, extended to 3-0 early in the second period before Laiken Swan scored her eleventh goal of the season to make it 3-1. The Rebels would score three more goals before the end of the second period, and then two more goals in the third made the final 8-1.
The Klippers then traveled to Lumsden for a game on Sunday, putting up a nice offensive effort despite another loss. The Klippers were down 3-0 early before getting on the board via Laiken Swan once again. The Lynx made it 6-1 shortly after that, before Kolbie Parker made it 6-2. The teams traded goals two more times Lashanti Iron made it 7-3, and Laiken Swan scored again to make it the 8-4 final.
The Western Prairie girls will have a chance to rebound next weekend with two games against the Outlook Ice Hawks. They are on the road both Friday and Saturday against the Ice Hawks, 8:30 PM and 4:00 PM respectively.
The Klippers next home game will be a Sunday afternoon matchup on February 25 against the Saskatoon Prairie Blaze.
