The Nelson Leafs beat the Grand Forks 6-3 Saturday night taking both games played against the Border Bruins last week.

Having three-point nights at the game played in Grand Forks were Blair Andrews, Brandon Sookro and Aaron Dunlap. And it was that trio that opened scoring midway through the first period, Dunlap getting the goal.

The Bruins Michael Rand tied it up on the power play and then Ravinder Shokar made it 2-1 for the Bruins before the end of 20 minutes play.

The score remained in the Bruins favour with no goals scored in the second but the Leafs came out ready to take over the game in the third.

Dunlap scored from Cole Arcuri and Sookro just over a minute into play. And then Arcuri and Andrews fed Patrick Croome the puck and he made it 3-2 Leafs.

Sookro and Andrews teamed up again with Sookro making it 4-2 and then Austin Seaman scored on the power play with help from Dunlap with just over eight minutes left in the final period.

Grand Forks Mitchell Pearson made it 5-3 as his team attempted a comeback but Carson Willans put the game away with 2:41 left in the third. Alec Wilkinson and Linden Horswill with the assists.

The Leafs beat Grand Forks at the NDCC 10-3 on Wednesday evening with the Bruins spending much of the game short handed. Friday night the Leafs extended their winning streak in Spokane against the Braves with a 5-1 score.

The Nelson team returns home this weekend with two games against the North Okanagan Knights on Friday and Kelowna on Saturday. The Leafs sit in first place with 44 points. Puck drops at 7 p.m. Friday.
