The Beaver Valley Nitehawks dominated the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Friday skating to a 4-0 victory to eliminate the Bruins and win the Neil Murdoch division title.
Affiliate player Bradley Ross netted the winner with 3:35 to play in the first period converting a setup from Dylan Heppler and Blake Sidoni for a 1-0 lead. The goal was all B.V. needed as the Border Bruins managed just 11 shots on the Nitehawks net with Tallon Kramer getting the shut out, while B.V. fired 37 at Bruins goalie Anthony Galliart.
Kyle Hope, Devin Nemes, and Tyler Ghiradosi scored the other goals for B.V., who will now face the Kimberley Dynamiters in the Kootenay Conference Final.
In the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference the 100-Mile House Wranglers bounced the Chase Heat from the playoffs with a 2-1 win in Game 6 Friday. The Wranglers will face the winner of the Summerland Steam and Osoyoos Coyote series which is tied 2-2.
