Leafs dump Lakers

The Nelson Junior Leafs notched their second win in a row Saturday night with a 4-1 effort against the Penticton Lakers.

The Nelson Junior Leafs notched their second win in a row Saturday night with a 4-1 effort against the Penticton Lakers.

Leafs rookie Carson Willians started the scoring at the Nelson and District Community Complex with a strong second effort seven minutes into the game. With just over a minute left in the opening period, Leafs’ defenceman Jonathon Petrash wired a shot from the point on the powerplay that eluded Lakers’ goalie Jessie Gordichuk.

The second period started with Colton Schell scoring his 12th goal of the season less than a minute into the middle frame.

Two minutes later the Lakers got on the board when Evan Anderson scored beat Leafs starter Andrew Walton on the powerplay.

Schell made the score 4-1 midway through the third period when he tallied his second goal of the game.

The Saturday night game marked the return of Adam Plant to the NDCC. Plant played minor hockey in Nelson until bantam, helping the local rep team to a provincial tier III championship three seasons ago. The 16-year-old is having a standout year with the Lakers having notched 20 points so far.

The Leafs travel to Fruitvale tonight to take on the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.
