The Kindersley Klippers have been away from home for a couple days now as they continue with their tour in Eastern Saskatchewan this week.

Things started off on the right foot for the Green and Whites during their first game of the road trip in Yorkton on Tuesday night. Despite a comeback attempt from the Terriers, Kindersley held on for the 4-3 win. But last night in Melville was a different story.

After Melville went up in the latter half of the second period from a Damien Bentz goal, the Millionaires right winger went on to score two more times in the 3rd period to complete the hat trick and singlehandedly help his team take down the Klippers 6-3.

It was a tough go for Klippers goaltender Justen Close in his third start since the SJHL/MJHL Showcase break. The puck went past him five times on the night, making 21 saves in the loss.

Kindersley was unable to separate themselves from the Humboldt Broncos in the division standings as both clubs are tied on 59 points for the lead with the Battlefords North Stars on their tails with 57 points.

The loss goes to show that the Klippers cannot take the Mills lightly heading into a rematch on Saturday night back in Melville. It has been a difficult year for the Millionaires so far this winter as they are in a heated tussle with the Weyburn Red Wings for the final playoff spot in the SJHL standings. Last night's win puts them up by two points on their division opponents.

Before the Klippers can start preparations for Saturday, they have to erase the loss from their minds and put their focus into tomorrow night's showdown against the Terriers. Both teams will return to the Farrell Agencies Arena in Yorkton for a 7:30 p.m. start time. This will be matchup three of five this season with the clubs tied 1-1 for the season series.

Saturday's game in Melville also kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
