The Nelson Leafs’ five game winning streak ended this afternoon in Spokane.
The local squad dropped a 4-3 decision to the Braves.
Nelson opened the scoring when Rayce Miller found the back of the net in the first period, but in the second, Spokane began to fire back. Sean Collins and Tanner Stolz scored to give the home town braves a 2-1 lead after two.
The third period was a high scoring affair. Nelson’s Aaron Dunlap tied the game at two apiece but a minute late, Spokane’s Tanner Stolz scored to give the Braves the lead for good.
Collins popped in another to make the lead 4-2 before Nelson’s Nolan Percival closed out the scoring.
Adam Maida stopped 29 of 33 shots in the loss.
The Leafs now play four straight road games. The next home game is set for Wednesday November 19 against Grand Forks.
