Beaver Valley Nitehawks forward Mitch Foyle battles for the puck with a Creston Thunder Cat defender on Saturday at the Hawks Nest as the Hawks came away with a 2-1 victory.

Beaver Valley Nitehawks clip Thunder Cats, but roasted by Rockets

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks earned 3-of-4 points on the weekend with a win against Creston and an overtime loss to Golden on Friday.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks emerged with three of four points in a two-game home stand on the weekend.

The Hawks fell to the Golden Rockets, 4-3, in overtime on Friday night but bounced back with a 2-1 victory over the Creston Valley Thunder Cats on Saturday.

The Nitehawks dominated the Cats outshooting them 37-16 over the first two periods and led 2-0 thanks to a brilliant play by Spencer McLean who sprung in on a 3-on-1 with Ross Armour and Mitch Foyle to score what proved to be the winning goal. McLean took a pass from Foyle and skated down the left side, slid a pass to Armour in the middle who then feathered it back to McLean who banged into the open net.

The Thunder Cats would score with 12:18 to play in the third period, to cut the lead to one, but Drake Poirier stood tall the rest of the way for the Nitehawks stopping 10 of 11 shots in the final frame to record the win.

Andrew Miller opened the scoring when he one-timed a pass from Tyler Hartman, wiring it top corner, and completely exploding the water bottle in the process. The Trail native has been a force on the back end for the Hawks scoring his fourth goal on the season for 11 points. The Hawks outshot Creston 45-27, and went 1-for-4 on the power play. Golden was 0-for-4.

On Friday, the Nitehawks got off to a good start against the Rockets and led 2-0 on goals from Jace Weeger and Tyler Stafford before Golden would reply. Nic Noseworthy scored an unassisted goal at 16:08 to cut the lead to one, but Armour would net a power-play goal, his fourth of the season, on a nice set up from Stafford to restore the two goal lead.

However, Golden would again make it a one-goal game with five minutes remaining in the second on a goal from Travis Kelley. Then midway through the final frame, Daniel Dahlin would tie it and the Hawks would kill a penalty in the final two minutes of the game to earn a point and send it to OT.

The Hawks outshot the Rockets 43-35, but with 2:47 left in the first overtime, Zack Finley beat goalie Carson Schamerhorn to get the two points.
