Beaver Valley Nitehawks bomb Grand Forks Border Bruins

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks throttled the hapless Border Bruins beating them 12-3 Saturday at the Hawks Nest.

After being held to one goal on Friday, the Beaver Valley Nitehawks exploded for a dozen markers on Saturday in a 12-3 victory over the Grand Forks Border Bruins at the Beaver Valley Arena.

The Nitehawks fell 2-1 to the Spokane Braves in Spokane on Friday, but bounced back Saturday on the strength of a four-goal outing by Tyler Hartman .

The Hawks scored four times in each period with Hartman netting three of his four goals in the first period to give B.V. a 4-1 lead. Reid Anderson had his biggest night of the year, counting five points on the strength of a goal and four assists. Devin Nemes and Mitch Foyle each scored twice while McKoy Hauk had a goal and two assists, and Jacob Boyczuk pitched in with a goal and an assist. Sam Swanson and Spencer McLean each had three helpers as the NItehawks dominated the game outshooting the Border Bruins 71 to 27.

Mitch Pearson, Josh Gladman, and Matt Lucero replied for the Bruins, which sit in last place in the Neil Murdoch division with a 7-28-1-3 record, while B.V. won its 25th game of the season and lead the Nelson Leafs by five points for top spot in the division.

On Friday, the Nitehawks led 1-0 heading into the third, but two power play goals by Tanner Stolz and Sean Collins would give the Braves the 2-1 victory. The Nitehawks outshot the Braves 51-42 but were stymied by Spokane goalie Trevor Delauro.

B.V. has a home-and-home with Grand Forks next weekend hosting the Border Bruins on Saturday at 7:30 p.m at the Hawks Nest.
