Kimberley 2 @ Creston 7
Seven different Thunder Cats scored and they also outshot Kimberley 36-26.
Nelson 4 @ Golden 0
Jason Sandhu got the shutout and 4 Leafs scored.
The Creston win gives them a 4 point lead on Kimberley while Fernie is now only 3 points behind the Nitro's. Meanwhile Golden remains 5 back of the Rockies for the final playoff spot.
The other game of note that keen KIJHL watchers was interested in was in that other Conference between two of the best teams but it was another blowout.
Osoyoos 7 @ Chase 7-2. A blowout was not expected between two 30 point teams.
