Leafs fall to Nitehawks despite solid effort

Nelson Leafs lost to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks 4-3 despite a solid effort Friday in Nelson.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks continue on their winning streak after putting away the Leafs 4-3 Friday in Nelson. The Nitehawks opened strong scoring their first just seconds into the first period, however a strong effort by both teams would leave the score unchanged until the third period.

Half way into the third period, the Nitehawks put in a breakaway goal on Leafs goaltender Andrew Walton, but was followed up by the Leafs’ first goal from James Sorrey.

Both teams were fired up for the last few minutes of the third period each scoring two goals in a row within three minutes. The Leafs pushed hard to tie up the game, but were unable to do so in regulation time.

The Leafs’ next match up is against Castlegar on Saturday.
