Nitros suffer setback with two weekend losses

Dynamiters fall to the Thunder Cats and the Ghostriders at scores of 5-2, fall to third in Eddie Mountain Division.

The Kimberley Dynamiters suffered a setback over the weekend with a pair of losses to the Creston Valley Thunder Cats and the Fernie Ghostriders—both at scores of 5-2.

The Nitros now occupy third place in the Eddie Mountain Division, two points behind the ‘Riders and seven behind the leading Thunder Cats.

On Friday evening on home ice, Tyson Klingspohn scored a pair of goals in the first period to give the Nitros a 2-1 lead going into the second period. However, the Thundercats tied it up in the middle frame, and added three goals in the final frame.

Dynamiters goaltender Jeremy Mousseau turned away 29 shots in defeat, while Brock Lefebvre made the same number of saves for the win.

The Nitros rode into Fernie on Saturday night, and peppered 41 shots on net, but the ‘Riders built on a two-goal lead after the opening period and didn’t look back.

Klingspohn again drew first blood, but the Riders answered back with three straight goals. The two teams traded markers in the second period, and Fernie notched another in the final frame.
