The Nelson Leafs handed Kimberly Dynamiters their first loss of the season winning against the Eddie Mountain leaders 3-1 on Saturday night.

The Leafs were first on the board after no scoring in the opener. Travis Wellman made it 1-0 early in the second  from Jamie Vlanich and JJ Beitel.

They held onto that lead until midway through the third when Charles Dagostin tied it up with help from Dynamiters line mates Brandon Bogdanek and Jared Marchi.

Soon after, the Leafs went on the power play. Unable to capitalize despite many great chances, the Dynamiters would get their own chance, the Leafs on the penalty kill.

But Vlanich fed Wellman another pass that resulted in a short-handed goal putting the Leafs up 2-1.

Just over a minute left in the game, the Leafs Vlanich and Wellman struck again with help from Alec Wilkinson. It was an empty-net goal for Vlanich making the final score 3-1 Leafs.

It was a three-point night for both Vlanich and Wellman putting them among the top 10 scorers in the league.

After two home games garnering the Leafs a tie and a win, they sit back atop the Neil Murdoch Division.

Thanksgiving weekend sees the Leafs play three games. The Nelson team takes on Beaver Valley Nitehawks at home on Friday. They game starts at 7 p.m. They play in Castlegar on Saturday before returning home for a Sunday afternoon game. It will start at 2:30 p.m.
