The Nelson Junior Leafs ran their winning streak to 11 with a 4-1 win over the Kimberley Dynamiters on Friday to start their three-game East Kootenay roadtrip.

With both teams coming out of the gates pressing, it wasn’t until just under four minutes left in the first period that any scoring was done. First Kimberley’s Jason Richter beat Nelson starter Brett Soles to give the home side a 1-0 lead. But 20 seconds later, the Leafs tied the score when James Sorrey notched on the powerplay.

The Leafs took the lead with seven minutes left in the second period when rookie defenceman Seth Schmidt scored his fifth goal of the season.

In the third period the Leafs defence was solid and Soles held his ground. Nelson added two more goals — Aaron Dunlap and Dallon Stoddart — to finish the game 4-1.

The Leafs now travel to Golden to take on the Rockets tonight. They will conclude the roadtrip in Invermere on Sunday with a  game against Columbia Valley.
