Klippers enter week on four-game winning streak

With five games remaining in the regular season, the club has locked up a playoff spot. But they could finish anywhere from sixth to eighth place

Curtis Peck showed some great speed, fighting off two Yorkton checkers and finishing off with a great move to open up the scoring Friday night in the Klippers 7-0 rout of the visiting Terriers.

The Kindersley Klippers are on a hot streak.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team has won four in a row and the offence really came alive last week.

Austin Nault scored twice in Friday’s game, one on the power play and one shorthanded.

They defeated the Notre Dame Hounds in Wilcox, winning 6-2 on Wednesday. During a weekend set at home against Yorkton, they won 7-0 Friday and followed that up with a 6-3 win Saturday night.

Coach Geoff Grimwood said that the week went well and the team was getting to the net a lot more and getting more shots.

“As a team we have struggled to score at times, and we are okay with that, we can play that type of game,” he said. “But we also have to pick up our goal scoring and it was good last week to get a bunch of goals on the board.”
