The Kindersley Jr. Klippers played host to the Wisconsin Lumberjacks of the SIJHL Sunday night at the West Central Events Centre. Kindersley outshot Wisconsin badly 24-1 in the first period, and got a pair of goals. The first one was by Noah Edstrom at the 15:05 mark, with the assist going to Cash Arnsten. Then just over three minutes later at the 18:12 mark, Aidan Taylor continued his impressive preseason, with another goal on the powerplay to double the Jr. Klippers lead. 

Heading into the second period, Wisconsin had a powerplay, as Aidan Bangs was in the box for tripping late in the first period, and Wisconsin took advantage, as Brandon McDonald scored just 15 seconds into the second, with the assist going to Ryan Kayser. Kindersley kept pressing and finally got on the board at the 12:25 mark, as Carson Baylis scored on an impressive rush, on a nice setup by Kaden Ostrom. The shots were actually even in the second period, as both teams had 10, but Kindersley still held a large margin overall, 34-11.

The third period saw Kindersley continue to get shots on Wisconsin goaltender Kyler Lowden, who was superb in this game, making 46 saves overall. The Lumberjacks finally took advantage of their strong goaltending and got one goal closer, as Caden Sutter scored on one that squeaked through the arm of Brett Sweet at the 12:05 mark. That is as close as the Lumberjacks would get though, as Kindersley held on for the 3-2 win, to up their record to 2-0 in the preseason. 

The Jr. Klippers saw strong games from their defense, as Tyson Tisdale, and Josh Morton has strong games on the back end. Aidan Taylor looked good up front, Carson Baylis and Cameron Rimstad, who laid out numerous people, were very solid as well.

Kindersley now plays a home and home with rival Battlefords beginning Tuesday night on the road, and the return matchup at home on Wednesday. Both games will be at 7:30 pm.
