It was a tight game in Spokane Friday night with the Leafs Carson Willans scoring the winning goal in overtime for the Nelson team.

The Braves Tanner Stolz scored the only goal for his team late in the first period from Coleman Macdonald and Levi Waterman.

And it wasn’t until late in the second that the Leafs tied it up despite many shots on goal. Darnel St. Pierre finally found the back of the net with help from Cole Arcuri and Blair Andrews just over four minutes left in the period.

The Leafs kept up pressure in the third again outshooting the Braves but the score remained tied at the end of regulation play.

Linden Horswill and St. Pierre fed Willans the puck with just under four minutes left in overtime period one to make the final 2-1 for the Leafs.

It was the Leafs first game without star scorer Jamie Vlanich who was called up to BCHL’s Langley Rivermen earlier this week.

They play at home tonight against Osoyoos Coyotes who are 11-7-0-0 and sit second in the Okanagan Division behind Kelowna. They beat the Castlegar Rebels Friday night 6-3.

The Leafs lead the league with an impressive record that has them yet to lose a game in regulation play.

Puck drops at the NDCC at 7 p.m.
