Dylan Bertrand of Sioux Lookout scored twice and added an assist in last night's 5-3 win. Cooper Witherspoon added two goals, as Kenora outlasted the Northstars. After outshooting Thompson 23-10 in the second period, Kenora was still tied 2-2 with Norman after 40 minutes. However, the Thistles scored three straight at the end of the third to break it open.
After a 3-2 shootout loss Friday night, the Kenora AAA Midget Thistles took three of four points from the Norman Northstars over the weekend. Kenora's still two points out of a playoff spot.
There was concern before the series about a repeat of the rough stuff in Thompson, which resulted in suspensions, officials called just eight penalties Friday and 10 Saturday.
Kenora's next home game is Friday, when they host the Winnipeg Thrashers.
