There was just one game on the SJHL schedule Wednesday night, as the Kindersley Klippers continued their north-south road swing. After playing in La Ronge Tuesday, the Klippers travelled the 642 kilometres to Wilcox to take on the Notre Dame Hounds. The Klippers would come out firing and picked up a 3-2 win in a shootout over the Hounds.

The Hounds had jumped out to an early lead with Kyle Robinson netting his third of the season at the 6:50 mark of the period. Tanner Tarbell and Qaritaq Kusugak-Clark assisted on the Notre Dame goal.

Kindersley didn’t waste much time in getting the equalizer. Josh Fletcher scored on the power play with 6:46 left in the opening frame. Kyle Bosch assisted on the tally.

Notre Dame would jump back out into the lead in the second period, when Conor Maclean, back in Wilcox for his second stint with the Hounds, scored his third since coming back to the team. Jared Hamm and Tarbell provided the assists on the power play marker.

The Klippers weren’t done yet, though. Josh Fletcher scored his second of the game, unassisted, to force overtime with just under ten minutes left in regulation.

In overtime, it was the goaltenders who stood tall for both teams, much as they had throughout the rest of the game. Zach Johnson would finish the game stopping 32 of 34 shots faced for Kindersley, while Riley Kohonick turned aside 39 of the 41 shots he faced.

With no resolution in overtime, the game went to a shootout. There, it would be Ty Enns who was the hero, as he scored the lone goal in the shootout, giving Kindersley the victory.

The Klippers have now won five games in a row, while the Hounds have dropped five in a row.

The next action for Kindersley will be Thursday when they finish their road trip in Weyburn against the Red Wings. The Hounds are now off until next Wednesday when they host the Humboldt Broncos.
