Nelson Leafs Rayce Miller fights for the loose puck with Kimberley Dynamiters goaltender Kiernan Matsuba. Miller would score on the play

Leafs fall to Dynamiters 4-2

The Nelson Leafs lost their first game in regulation time, dropping a 4-2 decision to the visiting Kimberley Dynamiters.

For the first time this season, the Nelson Leafs failed to earn a point as they lost 4-2 to the Kimberley Dynamiters on Friday night.

It was the Leafs first loss in regulation time this year.

The local squad looked to be in control of the game early on, out shooting their opponents 15-5 in the first period, but the Leafs only managed one goal in the opening frame, a marker by Branden Chow.

In the second, Nelson continued to carry the play, but the Dynamiters tied the game on a powerplay goal by Tyler Garcia.

Nelson quickly regained the lead as Rayce Miller put the puck in the net on a scramble in front of Kimberley goalie Kiernan Matsuba.

After that, it was all Dynamiters on the score sheet.

Before the period was over, Jason Richter beat Leafs’ goaltender Brett Soles to tie the game at two.

In the third Cov Prevost gave Kimberley an early 3-2 lead which they held until Prevost scored his second of the game into an empty Nelson net.

The Leafs will have to shake off their first loss in a hurry as the Sicamous Eagles come to town on Sunday, September 28 for a matinee contest at the Nelson and District Community Complex.

Puck drops at 2:30 p.m.
