Bruins take it to the Mustangs to close road trip

After a week of frustration in the Sherwood Division, the Power Dodge Estevan Bruins unleashed a deluge of goals in their last road game there this week, a 9-4 clobbering of the Melfort Mustangs.

The Bruins scored three goals in each period in the decisive victory, their first in four games in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s northernmost division and their final one on their week-long road trip.

Turner Ripplinger, Eddie Gallagher and T.J. Irey scored in the first period for the Bruins, while Irey, Jayden Davis and Bryce Platt scored in the second. Davis, with his second, Jake Heerspink and George Cathers scored the Bruins third period goals.

This was Davis’ first two-goal game in the SJHL.

Kadin Kilpatrick made 27 saves in the Bruins net in his first win since Sept. 18 against Yorkton and first start since Oct. 3 against Notre Dame.

The Bruins will have a few days to rest from game action before battling the Battlefords North Stars Friday and the Kindersley Klippers Saturday.
