KIJHL: Hunt scores twice as Leafs rout Braves

Nelson rebounded from a loss the night before for an easy win in Spokane.

Sawyer Hunt scored twice as the Nelson Leafs cruised past the Braves in Spokane 6-2 on Saturday.

Ryan Piva, David Lenzin, Sam Weber and Dale Howell also scored for the Leafs (1-1-0), who found their offence after a 3-1 loss in the season opener Friday in Fruitvale.

Jason Sandhu was again solid in the Leafs’ net, making 30 saves.

Paxton Malone scored twice for the Braves (1-1-0), while goaltender Blake Norman stopped 35 shots.

The two teams meet in a rematch Friday when the Leafs host their home-opener.
