KIJHL: Leafs cross Grand Forks Border Bruins

The Nelson Leafs were two for two on the weekend, with wins against the Spokane Braves and Grand Forks Border Bruins.

The Nelson Leafs picked up their second win of the young KIJHL season Sunday, 2-1 over the Grand Forks Border Bruins on the road.

Following the Leafs’  4-1 win against the Spokane Braves on Friday, breaking their two-game losing streak, they now boast a 2-and-2 record, although they remain in the Murdoch Division basement. With 13 rookies on the team, they are in the rebuilding phase and practicing four times a week said head coach David McLellan.

Veteran defenceman Brendan Smith scored the first goal against Grand Forks with less than 15 seconds left in the first period.

The Bruins’ Shayne Pluto brought the score to 1-1 in the second period but the Leafs forged ahead again in the third on a goal by Jordan Davie, his fourth of the season making him the top Leafs goal scorer thus far.

This weekend the Leafs head westward to play the Princeton Posse Friday and Osoyoos Coyotes on Saturday.

Their next home game is Friday, Oct. 2 in the Nelson and District Community Centre against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.
