The Melville MIllionaires moved out of their tie with the Weyburn Red Wings for tenth place in the SJHL standings Wednesday night, as they beat the visiting Kindersley Klippers 6-3. The win, the second in a row for the Millionaires, gives them 36 points on the season, two points more than the Weyburn Red Wings, with 13 games remaining in the campaign. The Wings also have a game in hand.

The Millionaires were led by veteran forward Damien Bentz. The 21-year-old scored a natural hat trick against the Klippers, with all three goals coming in the third period to break a 3-3 draw between the two teams.

For the Klippers, the win leaves them in a tie with the Humboldt Broncos for first in the Global Ag Risk Solutions Division. The Broncos and Klippers are also two points up on the Battlefords North Stars.

Kindersley is now off until Friday when they will take on the Terriers in Yorkton as they continue their swing in the Parkland, while the Millionaires host the Battlefords.

There is just one game in the SJHL on Thursday, as the La Ronge Ice Wolves welcome the Notre Dame Hounds to the Mel Hegland Uniplex.
