North Stars sweep weekend with Kindersley

Win both games by 5-2 final scores

The Battlefords North Stars have swept both their weekend games with the Kindersley Klippers, winning the second game at home 5-2 for their fifth win in a row.

It was the exact same score as it was the previous night in Kindersley. The Saturday contest was the North Stars' first home game back on Civic Centre ice after the almost two week Christmas break, and the team clearly was happy to be home as they scored early and often.

Just 1:15 into the contest Rylan Nivon got his 12th of the year from Austin Becker and Seth Summers to make it 1-0.

After Jaxon Georget's got tied it, Austin Becker responded with his 15th of the season for a 2-1 lead through one.

In period two Matthias Urbanski got the first of his two goals on the night at the 8:59 mark. That was only the 10th North Stars shot of the game, ending the night early for Klippers goaltender Matt Senkner. Steven Bacovsky went the rest of the way in net for Kindersley.

Sean Michalevich responded midway through the period for the Klippers, but Urbanski's second of the game from Becker and Ben Hiltz on the power play extended the lead to 4-2 through two.

Steven Kesslering's goal in the third from Noah Form and Kaden Boser wrapped the scoring for the North Stars. Despite being outshot 33-22, the North Stars still prevailed where it counted most: on the scoreboard. Adam Dmyterko stopped 31 of 33 to get the win.

The North Stars are back in action again at home Wednesday night versus Nipawin at the Civic Centre.
