The Nelson Leafs battled it out with the Kimberley Dynamiters tonight in a back and forth game leading to a 4-3 win for the Leafs.

The Leafs Colton Schell scored the first goal of the game late in the first period giving Nelson a one goal lead going into the second period.

But the Kimberley Dynamiters took advantage of their power play early in the second period scoring their first goal tying the game 1-1.

The Leafs were given a one man advantage in a power play minutes later when Matti Jmaeff scored Nelson’s second goal making the score 2-1 headed to the third period.

Momentum stayed in the hands of the home team early in the third as Brett Norman snuck the puck in the net giving the Leafs a two goal lead.

But their lead didn’t last long as the Dynamiters shot the puck high past goaltender Andrew Walton making the score 3-2.

Norman scored his second goal of the game half way through the third period shifting the momentum back into the hands of the Leafs.

But just when it looked Nelson would win with a two goal lead, the Dynamiters scored on the power play finishing the game 4-3.

The game wasn’t without excitement both on and off the ice.

Leafs fans were vocal throughout the game about calls made and not made by the referees.

Dynamiter Brennan Foreman threw his stick into his team’s bench while yelling at refs after he was given a total of four minutes of penalties for holding and game misconduct.

After slamming the door at bench closed and leaving the ice, play resumed.

Leafs fans were also disappointed after the puck slid into an empty Dynamiters net in the third period after the whistle.

The Leafs take on the Spokane Braves on Sunday night in Spokane.

The next Leafs home game is October 19 when they will face off against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.
