Leafs’ five-game winning streak snapped by Nitehawks

Nelson fell 4-1 on the first of three straight games this weekend

The Nelson Leafs’ five-game winning streak was snapped Friday with a 4-1 loss at home to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

Sawyer Hunt opened the scoring for the Leafs (26-7-3) in the first period, but Nelson’s offence was stymied for the rest of the game.

Josh Williams meanwhile allowed all four goals on 25 shots, and had his league-record four shutout streak snapped.

Kevin McBean scored twice for the Nitehawks (21-13-3), while Karsten Jang and Aidan Browell added singles and goaltender Liam Coulter made 30 saves.

The game was the first of three in a row for Nelson. They next host the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Saturday before returning to Fruitvale to finish a game against Beaver Valley that had been previously postponed by an electrical outage.
