The Nelson Leafs lost their first game in regulation play Sunday afternoon in Creston against the Thunder Cats – and it wasn’t a squeaker.
The Cats beat the Leafs 9-3 in the final game of three played this long weekend, all three being losses for the team that had previously tallied only one over-time loss and a tie.
Carson Willans, Austin Seaman and Linden Horswill scored for the Leafs – two coming in the first period and one in the final minutes of the third. The Creston Valley team notched four in the first period and then again in the second with their ninth goal coming in the third.
Shots were 47-28 for the Thunder Cats and both Brad Rebagliati and Tyler Moffat played in net for the Nelson team.
The Leafs lost in overtime against the Princeton Posse at the NDCC on Friday night and Spokane Braves beat them in overtime on Saturday night in Nelson.
The Leafs will get another chance against Princeton when they travel to the Okanagan on Friday. They play Osoyoos Coyotes on Saturday. Their next home game is against the Border Bruins midweek on November 20.
