Linden Horswill had a three-point night with a goal and two assists. Despite the offensive effort

Another overtime loss for Nelson Leafs

The Nelson Leafs were handed their second overtime loss this weekend when they took on the Spokane Braves

Despite a 3-1 lead early in the third, the Nelson Leafs were handed their second overtime loss this weekend when they took on the Spokane Braves a the Nelson and District Community Complex.

Tying it up in the third, the Braves couldn’t beat Nelson in regulation but an unassisted goal by Spokane defense Kyle Davis  made it a 4-3 final.

Spokane was on the board first late in the first period as Tyler Wilkerson got it past Leafs netminder Brad Rebagliati. Tanner Stolz and Coleman Macdonald assisting.

Just 30 seconds later Leafs Linden Horswill made it 1-1 from Darnel St. Pierre and Carson Willans. Horswill struck again early in the second from Travis Wellman and Willans and it was 2-1 after 40.

Fifteen seconds into the third the Leafs extended their lead to 3-1 as the Wellman, Willans and Horswill trio struck again – this time Wellman with the goal.

But the Braves commanded the game from then on. Stolz got a powerplay goal at 17:13 left in the third. Sean Colins and Kurtis Redding helping. Adam Shaner tied it up with just over 14 minutes left in regulation Redding and Davis assisting. It remained 3-3 at the end of 60 minutes.

It took into the second overtime period for the game decision by Braves Davis as the clock was winding down.

The home team still hasn’t lost in regulation play and despite the rough weekend so far still sits atop the league with a 15-0-1-3 record.

The Leafs head over to Creston Valley to play the Thunder Cats this afternoon. The Cats are in first place in the Eddie Mountain Division. Game starts at 2 p.m.
