Nitros split weekend road swing through Okanagan.

Dynamiters defeat Summerland Steam 3-1, but fall 8-5 to the Kelowna Chiefs.

The Kimberley Dynamiters split their weekend action on the road, dumping the Summerland Steam 3-1, but falling 8-5 to the Kelowna Chiefs the following night.

The weekend performance puts Kimberley in second place in the Eddie Mountain Division, three points behind the Fernie Ghostriders.

Connor Tetlock had a four-point weekend, notching a goal and an assist against the Steam, while scoring twice on Saturday against Kelowna.

Dynamiters stopper Jeremy Mousseau stood in net in both games, facing more shots in each contests than his opponents on the other side of the rink.

The Steam took the lead in the second frame after a scoreless first period on Friday evening, when Daniel Kerr posted a power play marker five minutes in.

However, the third period was the decider as the Nitros rattled off three consecutive goals to coast to the win.

Tyson Klingspohn got the ball rolling four minutes into the final frame with his third goal of the season. Connor Kutzner followed up at the halfway mark with a power play goal.

Tetlock notched the empty-netter with 10 seconds left to close it out.

Mousseau was busy in the crease, turning away 38 shots, while Connor DeMelo stopped 31 shots for the Steam.

The Nitros capitalized once in five opportunities with Kutzner’s goal on the power play, while the Steam were good for one goal in four chances.

A strong second period propelled the Chiefs to the win on Saturday, as the Nitros fell short of a comeback in the final frame in their 8-5 loss.

The two teams remained tied at 2-2 after the opening frame; the Chiefs scored a pair of goals, before the Dynamiters responded with markers from Corson Johnstone and Tetlock.

The Chiefs jumped ahead with six goals in the middle frame, four of which occurred on the man-advantage. During that time frame, the Nitros only scored once on an effort from Jared Marchi.

Trailing 8-3 going into the third period, the Nitros managed to score twice on the power play from Sam Nigg and Isaac Schacher.

Mousseau again manned the crease, stopping 32 shots, while Tyler O’Donnell turned away 20 shots for the Chiefs.

The Nitros hit the road again this Tuesday for a quick trip up to Invermere to face the Columbia Valley Rockies, before hosting Nelson on Friday in the first of a four-game home stand.
