Beaver Valley Nitehawks battle Posse in weekend tilt

Hawks face off against the Posse in Penticton tonight.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks are on the road this weekend for a single matchup against the Okanagan division’s Princeton Posse on Saturday.

The Posse are currently mired in last place in their division with a 7-11-0-1 record, but are coming off an inspiring 6-5 victory over the Nelson Leafs last week.

With the Posse’s help the Nitehawks were finally able to pick up some ground on a suddenly struggling Leafs’ team. Nelson lost its first game of the season in regulation on Sunday to Creston, 9-3, after succumbing to both the Spokane Braves, 4-3, and the Posse in overtime the previous two nights.

The Hawks were impressive in a 4-1 victory over the Eddie Mountain division’s Fernie Ghostriders (9-9-0-1) Saturday, and even more so in a 4-0 shutout of a surging Spokane squad.

Hawks goaltenders Brett Clark and Grayson Sharpe were stellar between the pipes, as Clark turned aside 36 of 37 shots Saturday, and Sharpe all 26 fired his way in the shutout against Spokane.

The Leafs lead the league despite collecting just 2-of-6 points on the weekend with 34 points, while B.V. remains in second spot in the Neil Murdoch division with 28.

B.V. returns to the Hawks Nest on Nov. 22 for a game against the Columbia Valley Rockies.
