Isaac Schacher was the overtime hero on Saturday, scoring a power play goal in the second extra frame to lift the Nitros to the win.

Dynamiters stopper Jeremy Mousseau stood in goal for both games, stopping 15 shots in Creston, and 31 shots in the Civic Centre on Saturday.

Despite Nitro victories in both games, it was Creston who scored first on both contest.

Trevor Hanna found the back of the net on a shorthanded effort with five seconds  remaining in the opening period on Friday.

However, Jared Marchi responded for the Dynamiters less than a minute into the second period.

Kimberley earned the win with a strong final period, off of goals from Isaac Schacher, Adam Hodge and Tyson Klingspohn.

The only answer Creston had was a single goal from Ethan Rusnack with six minutes to go in the game.

The Nitros capitalized once in eight chances on the man-advantage, while Creston scored a single marker on the power play in five opportunities.

The T-Cats struck first in their rematch on Saturday in Kimberley, as Darcy Flaherty put Creston ahead four minutes into the game.

However, the Dynamiters came back and took the lead in the following frame off of goals from Sam Nigg and Marchi.

Creston tied up the game in the final period in the dying seconds as Angus Johnston sent the contest into overtime.

Creston failed to score on any of their five power plays, while Kimberley capitalized twice in four chances.

Mousseau eared the first and second star respectively in both games for his performance between the pipes.
