The Nelson Leafs have bounced back after Friday night’s loss to Castlegar, beating the visiting Spokane Braves 3-1 on Saturday.
Nelson’s Matt MacDonald opened the scoring in the first period. For 40 minutes it appeared as if that may be the only goal of this defensive battle.
But in the third period, Rayce Miller increased the lead to 2-0 but Spokane’s Jake Toporowski cut the lead to 2-1.
An empty net goal by Sam Webber sealed the game for Nelson.
Brett Soles picked up the win, facing only 10 shots in the game.
