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
