Nitros edge T-Cats 4-3

Dynamiters finish third game in as many nights with a win in Creston.

The Nitros finished off their three games in three nights with a 4-3 win over their divisional leaders in the Creston Valley Thunder Cats on Monday night.

Goaltender Tyson Brouwer was the hero for his team, making a monster 43 saves in goal, while a trio of goals in the second period set the Nitros on the road to victory.

The win now closes the gap to a manageable three points between Kimberley and Creston Valley, however the Thunder Cats have five games in hand.

The two teams traded goals in the first period, as Bryce Perpelitz tallied first on the powerplay, before Carson Cartwright answered back later in the frame.

Kimberley’s offensive spark ignited in the middle period, as Tyson Klingspohn and Dallin Wolf scored five minutes apart.

Maverick Lynes put Creston back on the board in the second half of the frame, but Matt Barzilay scored soon after to make it a two-goal lead for Kimberley.

Brandon Formosa scored the lone goal in the final 20 minutes, however, the Nitros stayed alive on sharp goaltending from Brouwer, who faced 23 shots in the third period.

Perpelitz’s powerplay goal was the only one in four chances with the man-advantage for Kimberley. Creston was denied on all five of their powerplay opportunities.
