Glen Traverse put forth his best Georges Vezina impersonation, and Ben Kielb scored a powerplay goal with five seconds left in the game to lead Kilrich to a nail-biting 4-3 win over the Firth Rangers in Whitehorse Oldtimers hockey action Thursday night at Takhini Arena.

Dustin Heffner added two for Kilrich to help his team strengthen their grip on first place in the standings. Les Luciuk rifled home the other one for Kilrich. Blayne Monahan potted a pair in defeat, and Damon Crosby also scored for Firth on a dandy shot just under the crossbar.

The other Thursday game saw Darryl Cann post a 4-0 shutout for AON in their victory over Yukon Inn. Gary McKellar led the offensive charge for AON with two goals, and singles came from Wade Hanna and Kevin Johnstone.

Wednesday night, Mike Sage took advantage of a copious amount of ice time to pop in a pair of goals to lead EDI to a 5-2 triumph over Air North. Marcel Barrault, Johnny Sembsmoen and Stu MacMillan also scored for EDI. Air North got goals from Pete Mostyn and Al Hansen.

And defenceman Bruce Milligan showed his versatility as he scored twice playing forward to propel Tim Hortons to a 7-3 win over Medicine Chest. Mike Blower chipped in two markers, and Mike Menzies, Gregor Gabb (on a beauty top shelfer) and Anthony Grottoli rounded out the scoring. Replying for Medicine Chest were Myles Dolphin with a pair and Chris Carli.
