The Nelson Leafs fell 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday night.

Leafs facing elimination after overtime loss

Nelson is now down three games to one to Beaver Valley in the KIJHL playoffs.

The Nelson Leafs are one game away from elimination following a 2-1 overtime loss to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Tuesday night in Fruitvale.

Nelson now finds itself down three games to one and will play game five, back at the Nelson and District Community Complex, on March 13.

Tuesday’s game was a nail biter for both squads. After a scoreless first period, the visiting Leafs opened the scoring in the second period as Jamie Vlanich scored on the powerplay, assists went to Travis Wellman and Austin Seaman.

But the lead only lasted for a short time as Beaver Valley’s Archie McKinnon tied the game at one before the end of the second.

After another scoreless period, the squads headed to overtime.

Jacob Boyczuk was the hero for the Nitehawks as he beat Leafs’ netminder Patrick Zubick to win the game.

Zubick was solid in the Nelson net, stopping 38 of the 40 shots he faced. However, his counterpart Brett Clark was equal to the task, stopping 35 of 36 shots for Beaver Valley.
