Leafs crushed by Nitehawks 9-3

Nelson Leafs lost 9-3 on Friday in Fruitvale.

The Nelson Leafs gave up four first-period goals en route to a 9-3 drubbing at the hands of the

Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Friday night in Fruitvale.

Forward Nicholas Wihak was the top player for the Leafs as he scored a pair of goals and was

named the game’s second star.

The Nitehawks took advantage of undisciplined play by the Leafs to score five powerplay goals,

including a pair of man-advantage markers in the first ten minutes.

The game was a feisty affair with the Leafs collecting 61 minutes in penalties, including

three misconducts, while the Nitehawks were only assessed 18 penalty minutes including one 10-minute


Defenceman Michael Lenoury scored the Leafs third goal.

The loss was the Leafs’ third straight and sixth of the season
