Chill Split Series Against Fairbanks

The Coulee Region Chill split their series against the Fairbanks Ice Dogs this past weekend.

Friday nights game was an overtime thriller that resulted in a 5-4 win for the Chill.  The game was dominated offensively by Dom Florian (two goals, two assists) and Michael Wilson (one goal, two assists).  Wilsons’ lone goal – and only shot throughout the game – came in overtime to win.  Other goals scored by the Chill were Isaac Theisen in the first and Aussie Miller in the second.  Both Hunter Vorva (34/36 saves) and Matiss Kivlenieks (16/18 saves) were in net throughout the night with Kivlenieks picking up the win.

Saturday nights game was much like the night before.  The Ice Dogs scored first off of a power-play goal via Logan Coomes but Justin Kendall answered back with a power-play goal of his own.  The Chill took the lead midway through the second after Theisen – second on the weekend – while shorthanded.  Jakob Stridsberg of Fairbanks scored to tie the game up at two but Coomes scored his second of the night for Fairbanks with 1:02 left and it proved to be the game winner as the Chill fell by a score of 2-3.  Kivlenieks was in net once again, saving 39/42 shots on the night.  Gavin Nieto got the win for Fairbanks, saving 26/28 shots.
