There is no stopping the Kimberley Dynamiters these days.
With no questions existing about the team’s offense, which sits first in the KIJHL (48 goals for), the Nitros showed they can play stiff defense this past weekend as they claimed back-to-back shutout victories over the Creston Valley Thunder Cats (4-0) and Grand Forks Border Bruins (3-0).
Goaltender Tyson Brouwer backstopped the Dynamiters both nights, turning in performances of 30 saves and 24 saves, respectively, laying claim to his third and fourth goose egges of the season.
Forward Jared Marchi provided the offensive punch for the Dynamiters over the weekend. The 20-year-old Kimberley native scored the game-winning goal both nights, and registered a hat-trick in Friday’s triumph over the Thunder Cats.
With the wins, the Dynamiters (9-1-0-2, 20 points) maintained their first-place standing in the Eddie Mountain Division, ahead of the second-place Thunder Cats (7-2-0-0, 14).
Next up, the Dynamiters take on the Golden Rockets in a home-and-home clash. The Nitros host the Rockets Friday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.
