Four straight goals and some incredible goaltending earned the Kindersley Klippers a 4-1 Family Day win over the Humboldt Broncos yesterday at the Elgar Petersen Arena in Humboldt.

Following a scoreless first, Kindersley's Tyler Traptow and Will Van der Sloot started the scoring in the second period, before Ty Enns and Noah Bankowski would add two more to give the Klippers crucial points against their division opponents.

Kindersley's Justen Close had his shutout spoiled by Humboldt's Riker Franczak with two and a half minutes left in regulation. The Klippers goaltender backstopped his team to their 33rd win of the season by making 34 saves for the road victory. This was Justen's 22nd W in his 36th appearance.

Broncos goaltender Rayce Ramsay faced the most shots in the contest, providing 41 saves in a losing effort.

Yesterday's win in Humboldt puts the Klippers and Broncos at a first-place tie in the division with 71 points each. Not far behind them are the Battlefords North Stars who fought their way to a 3-2 win over the Klippers on Friday night in Kindersley.

While Kindersley and the Battlefords are equal on games played this season at 52, the Klippers have two games in-hand on the Broncos heading into this weekend's three-game road trip.

The Klippers now have a couple days to gear up for their hectic three games in three nights coming up this weekend. They will start the road trip off with the league-best Hawks in Nipawin on Friday, Melfort on Saturday, and back in Humboldt on Sunday.

Kindersley has six games remaining on their regular season schedule, four of which will be played away from home.
