The Nelson Leafs are back on the winning track. The locals beat the Princeton Posse 7-4 on Friday night.

Leafs round up Posse 7-4

Nelson is back in the win column following a 7-4 decision in Princeton on Friday night.

Last weekend’s three game losing streak may just have been a blip on the radar as the Nelson Leafs returned to its winning ways on Friday night.

The Leafs beat down the Posse 7-4 in Princeton.

But for a short while, it looked as though the losing streak might continue.

Nelson jumped out to a quich 2-0 lead thanks to first period goals by Alec Wilkinson and Carson Willans.

But the Posse battled back, scoring three goals in a row to take a 3-2 lead early in a wild second period.

Just as it appeared that the Leafs might be letting this one slip away, the offence took over the second half of the middle frame, putting four pucks into the net in an eight minute span.

Travis Wellman got the offensive ball rolling, tying the game at the midway point. Then goals by Tyler Garcia, Darnel St. Pierre and Nick Landry put the victory on ice.

Princeton added one more in the third but Nelson’s Patrick Croome restored the three goal lead with a tally late in the game.

Jamie Vlanich notched two assists in his return to the local squad.

Goaltender Brad Rebagliati earned the victory, stopping 27 of the 31 shots he faced.

The Leafs continue its two-game road trip with a contest against Osoyoos on Saturday night.

The squad’s next home game is set for Wednesday November 20 when Grand Forks comes to the NDCC. The puck drops at 7 p.m.
