Davidson scores hat trick, OT winner for Leafs

The Nelson native led the Leafs to a 3-2 win over Castlegar

Nelson native Joe Davidson scored a hat trick including once in overtime as the Leafs beat the Rebels in Castlegar 3-2 on Tuesday.

Davidson scored once in the first period, again on the power play in the second and finally 2:12 into OT to help Nelson snap a three-game losing streak.

Anderson Violette made 27 saves for Nelson (18-8-4), which moved back into first place in the Neil Murdoch Division, one point ahead of the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. Beaver Valley has three games in hand over the Leafs.

Justin Duguay and former Leafs player Tyson Soobotin replied for Castlegar (8-16-5), while Dawson Rattai stopped 25 shots.

The Leafs next play a home-and-away series Friday and Saturday with the Spokane Braves, starting Friday in Nelson.
