A second period goal from Braeden Adamyk was all the scoring the Klippers would need as they drew first blood in their Sherwood Conference semi-final series with a 1-0 victory over the Notre Dame Hounds.
Rookie goaltender Josh Thorimbert stopped all 26 Hound shots for the shut-out while Hounds tender Russell Abbott stopped 25 of 26 shots on the night.
The Klippers played what appears to be a very disciplined game only giving up 4 power play opportunities to the Hounds. Kindersley went 0/9 with the extra man. If the Klippers can click on the power play, special teams could be a deciding factor throughout the remainder of the series.
On paper it appears both teams went into a defensive shell in the third. Shots were 6-3 in favor of the Hounds and just one power play in the frame going the way of the Klippers.
Game two in this series goes tonight in Wilcox and the game can be heard on Classic Hits Radio.
I'm doing a little digging to see if anyone knows why the online broadcasts aren't working. It's pretty frustrating to be unable to hear the game online. Are most experiencing the same problem? I'll let you know what I find out.
