Nelson Leafs winning streak continues over weekend

Another good weekend for the Nelson Junior Leafs. The team added two more wins to their success streak — now five games into regular season action, they’ve yet to lose any.

On Friday night, the Leafs travelled to Spokane to meet the Braves.

The guys in green dominated the first period with two unanswered goals by Travis Wellman and Alec Wilkinson. Wellman got another through the pipes during a power play early in the second period to bring the score to 3-0.

The Braves found their way past Leafs goalie Adam Maida for the first time midway through the second and tapped another one in the last minute of that period.

In the final frame, the Braves evened the score on a power play but the Leafs Jamie Vlanich was able to find an opportunity, during another power play, to get the team back into the lead before the buzzer. The final score was 4-3.

On Saturday the Leafs were back home at the Nelson and District Community Complex taking on the Grand Forks Border Bruins.

The home team again racked up two unanswered goals in the first period, thanks to Tyler Garcia and Wellman. In the second period Wellman found the net twice more to make it a hat trick.

Going into the third period 4-0, the Leafs’ Jamie Vlanich added one more to the home teams tally. Grand Forks got their first goal of the night past Tyler Moffatt midway through the final frame. The final score was 5-1 for the Leafs.

The next Nelson Leafs home game is Friday, October 4 at 7 p.m. against the Columbia Valley Rockies.
