Nitros split weekend with Rockets

Dynamiters surrender three goals in one period for a loss in Golden, but rebound with an explosive 8-3 win.

A bad period was the only thing that stood between the Kimberley Dynamiters and two wins over the weekend.

The Nitros gave up three goals in the second period of a 4-1 loss to the Golden Rockets, but exploded for an 8-3 win on home ice the following night in a rematch.

Kimberley is currently in a standings battle with the Fernie Ghostriders and lead by two points for second place in the Eddie Mountain Division. The Creston Valley Thunder Cats are in the top spot with a seven-point cushion.

Brady Revie and Jason Richter led the way with a pair of goals on Saturday night, as the Nitros scored seven unanswered goals in the second and third period to win 8-3.

The two teams traded powerplay goals in the first frame, Golden first by Cole Mckechney before Tyson Klingspohn answered for the Dynamiters.

Tanner Watt retook the lead for the Rockets a the halfway mark of the second period before the floodgates opened.

In his second KIJHL game after being called up from the B.C. Major Midget League, Coy Prevost notched his first career KIJHL marker, followed by Richter’s first of the game a few minutes later.

Leading 3-2 with 20 minutes to go in the game, the Dynamiters put on the pressure.

Four goals at even strength came from Richter, Revie, Alex Rosolowsky and Jared Marchi, while Revie’s second marker came on the powerplay.

Golden managed to get on the board with 4:13 left in the game with the man-advantage on a goal from Dustin Watt.

Jeremy Mousseau picked up the win with 21 saves while Brian Parsons and Adam Johnson collectively made 25 stops in goal for the Rockets.

Kimberley’s powerplay drew blood twice in eight opportunities while Golden was good for a pair of goals in 10 chances with the man-advantage.

It was a more positive result than the night before in Golden, where the Dynamiters allowed three goals in the second period to give up a 4-1 loss to the Rockets.

With just under 1:30 left in the opening period, Marchi opened the scoring on a solo effort, but just 24 seconds later, the Rockets answered back on a powerplay from Braeden Allkins.

In the second period, Nick Hoobanoff and Allkins added even-strength goals, while Ian Desrosier posted a powerplay goal in-between for Golden.

Tyson Brouwer took the loss in goal with 20 saves while Parsons picked up the win with 26 stops in goal for Golden.

The Rockets had the edge on special teams, with two goals in nine powerplay opportunities, while Kimberley was shut out in four chances with the man-advantage.

The Dynamiters have a brief break for Christmas, and will return to action with a game in Fernie against the Ghostriders on Dec. 28th.
