Beaver Valley Nitehawks double up Grand Forks Border Bruins

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks did just enough to claim the 4-2 victory over the Grand Forks Border Bruins Tuesday at the Beaver Valley Arena.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks netted three-second period goals then shut the door in the third as they skated to a 4-2 victory over the Grand Forks Border Bruins Tuesday night at the Beaver Valley Arena.

Jacob Boyczuk scored what proved to be the winner at 14:29 scooping up a Ryan Edwards pass and firing it low between the pads of Bruins goalie Kai McDonald to make it 3-1 Hawks.

The Bruins were without leading scorer Jackson Purvis, but the Hawks were also humbled by injury to regulars Michael Bell, Sam Barker and Sam Swanson, inserting APs Spencer McLean and Ross Armour from the Major Midget Kootenay Ice into the lineup.

Archie Mckinnon counted three assists for the Nitehawks in the win. The Hawks captain has yet to score a goal but has 17 assists in 18 games. Ryan Edwards was also huge with a goal and two assists on the night as the Hawks outshot the Border Bruins 39-34. Grayson Sharpe got the win in net for the Nitehawks while McDonald took the loss.
