Rough start to road trip

The Nelson Leafs fell 7-3 to the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Friday night.

It wasn’t the way the Nelson Leafs wanted to start their road trip.

The local club travelled to 100 Mile House on Friday night and lost 7-3 to the Wranglers.

The home squad was all over the Leafs in the first two periods, taking a 4-0 lead into the third thanks to goals from Micky Turner, Justin Schwing, Cole Zimmerman and Nick McCabe.

In the third, Nelson attempted to battle back.

Aaron Dunlap and Aaron Brewer scored for Nelson to narrow the gap to 4-2, but Brady Ward scored soon after to increase the Wranglers lead to three goals.

Darnel St. Pierre scored the final Nelson goal while Michael Lynch and Nick Headrick rounded out the scoring for the Wranglers.

It was a tough night for both of the Leafs netminders as Adam Maida stopped seven of the 11 shots he faced in 40 minutes of play while Brett Soles stopped five of eight shots in 20 minutes of playing time.

The Leafs now have to regroup and prepare for tomorrow night’s road game against the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
