Nelson Leafs ended a two game losing streak by defeating the Kimberley Dynamiters 3-1 on Friday night in Kimberley.

Strong second period leads Leafs to victory

Nelson Leafs scored three goals in the second period to defeat the Kimberley Dynamiters 3-1.

The Kimberley Dynamiters may have scored first, but a big second periond helped the Nelson Leafs end a two game losing streak as they knocked off their opponents 3-1 in action on Friday night.

The two squads played a scoreless first period but the home town Dynamiters opened the scoring early in the second when Jason Richter scored a shorthanded goal for the Kimberley squad,

But the rest of the period belonged to Nelson.

Darnel St. Pierre got the offensive ball rolling for the Leafs, scoring at the five minute mark of the second periond thanks to a feed from Brandon Sookro.

Two minutes later it was Troy Petrick bulging the twine to give Nelson the 2-1 lead. Helpers went to Carson Willans and Nick Trefry.

The final goal of the period, and the game, came when the leafs were shorthanded as Jamie Vlanich beat the Dynamiters netminder to finish off the scoring.

Like the first, the third period was scoreless.

Brad Rebagliati had a fairly easy night in the nets, stopping 19 of the 20 shots he faced.

The Leafs fired 27 shots at Kimberley netminder Tyson Brouwer.

Nelson continues their four game road trip tonight when they play the Golden Rockets followed by a contest on Sunday, January 5 in Invemere against the Columbia Valley Rockies.

The following week the Leafs travel to Castlegar to play the Rebels on January 10.

The squad’s next home game is Saturday, January 11 at the NDCC when the Spokane Braves come to town.

The puck drops at 7 p.m.
