KIJHL: Leafs lose fourth straight

Nelson dropped a 5-3 result to the Columbia Valley Rockies in Invermere on Friday night.

The Nelson Leafs’ late-season slide continued Friday.

The Columbia Rockies scored four unanswered goals to beat the Leafs 5-3 in Invermere.

Mike Dyck scored twice for the Rockies (14-26-4), while Chase Hawkins, Riley Knott and Davin Burton also scored. Hawkins finished with a four-point night after assisting on three goals.

Rockies goaltender Ben Keisch meanwhile had 36 saves.

Mason Mullaney, Logan Wullum, who scored short-handed, and Jack Karran replied for the Leafs (18-21-5), while Devin Allen stopped 29 shots.

The Leafs seem destined to play first-place Beaver Valley in the first round of the playoffs. Either another Nelson loss, a Grand Forks win or two ties by the Border Bruins will mean the Leafs finish fourth in the Neil Murdoch Division.

Nelson next visits Fernie on Saturday night.
