The Nelson Leafs were only able to score once in Creston last night.

KIJHL: Nelson falls 5-1 in Creston

The Leafs did not have much to show for their trip over the Kootenay Pass Friday.

Alec Wilkinson scored a goal and added two assists as the Creston Valley Thunder Cats beat the Nelson Leafs 5-1 on Friday night at the Johnny Bucyk arena.

Captain Rayce Miller scored the only Leaf goal on a pass from Nolan Percival with a little more than four minutes left in the game to break Brock Lefebvre’s shutout bid.

The Thunder Cats led 3-0 after the first and 4-0 after the second, although the Leafs actually outshout Creston 33-31. Joseph Barton made 28 saves in the Leafs net.

The loss dropped Nelson’s record to 12-8-0. They remain third in the Neil Murdoch Division, five points back of Castlegar.

Nelson returns home tonight to take on Grand Forks, who are four points back of the Leafs in the standings.
