A hat-trick from former Notre Dame Hound Kobe Kindrachuk helped the Hafford Hawks stay alive in their Saskatchewan Prairie Hockey League semifinal playoff series, as they topped the Battleford Beaver Blues 6-1 in game four on Thursday night.

Also scoring for the Hawks on Thursday was Tyler Hubbard, who found the back of the net twice, and Micheal Lamborn. Brandon Ewanchuk registered three assists.

The Hawks win means whoever triumphs in game five on Sunday will advance to the SPHL finals, where they will play either Meota or Edam. Meota currently leads the other semifinal series 2-1.

Last year, Hafford lost in the league finals to Edam.

The Blues have lost their 2-0 series lead in this year's semi, as they edged out 4-3 wins in games one and two, but then fell 6-3 to Hafford in game three on the road.

Their top line once again provided the only scoring on Thursday, with Brent Salzl netting the only goal, assited by Cody Danberg and Mike George.

Sunday's decisive game is set for 5 p.m. in Hafford.
