The Nelson Pee Wee Leafs fought hard

Nelson Pee Wees can’t shake Castlegar

The Nelson Pee Wee Rep Leafs had a chance to seal a ticket to the tier 3 provincials on Tuesday night

The Nelson Pee Wee Rep Leafs had a chance to seal a ticket to the tier 3 provincials on Tuesday night at the NDCC, but Castlegar wouldn’t give up.

Having won the first game of the West Kootenay final on Monday night, Nelson needed a win Tuesday to clinch the first-to-four-points series.

The game started well for Nelson when they grabbed a 1-0 lead late in the first period. Less than 30 seconds after the puck dropped in the second period, Castlegar notched the score at 1-1.

Midway through the second period Nelson again gained the advantage, a lead they would hold until late in the third period. With 1:41 left in the game, Castlegar scored to tie the score and the game ended in a 2-2 tie.

The tie means the two teams will tangle once again Thursday night in Castlegar. Win or tie, Nelson will be off to Quesnel during spring break. If Castlegar wins, it will force a fourth and final game on the weekend.
