Nelson Junior Leafs forward Carson Willans drives to the net last Saturday at the NDCC. The Leafs play two home games this weekend — Friday and Sunday afternoon.

Nitehawks seek revenge against Nelson tonight

Eleven days ago the Nelson Junior Leafs handed the Beaver Valley Nitehawks their worst loss of the young season in Fruitvale.

Eleven days ago the Nelson Junior Leafs handed the Beaver Valley Nitehawks their worst loss of the young Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season in Fruitvale. Tonight at the Nelson District Community Complex the same two teams will tussle and odds are the visitors will be looking for redemption.

“They are going to come out strong. We just have to come out stronger,” said Leafs captain Colton Schell in reference to the 10-3 win.

The Leafs ride into the weekend on a five-game winning streak that Schell says is a product of focus by the entire squad.

“It all comes down to hard work in practice during the week and major focus in the dressing room,” the veteran sniper said. “We have to make sure that everyone doesn’t try to play the game for themselves and we work as a team.”

Tonight’s game starts at 7 p.m. The Leafs will then host the Sicamous Eagles on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at the NDCC.
