Chiefs Sink Thistles In Third

Despite scoring the first goal of the game and a strong 44-save performance from James Hill, the Kenora Thistles dropped a 5-2 decision to the Yellowhead Chiefs Sunday afternoon at the Moncrief Construction Sports Centre.

Reid Pitura scored the first goal of the game, his first of the season, on the powerplay about halfway through the opening period (assisted by Jackson Tucker and Cole Bodnar). The other Thistles goal was scored in the third period by Carter Peters (assisted by Callum McCormick).

With the helper, Bodnar finished the weekend with four points (three goals, one assist) in two games.

Next up for Kenora is a mid-week tilt with the Winnipeg Bruins.
