Beaver Valley Nitehawks road woes continue

The Castlegar Rebels defeated the Beaver Valley Nithehawks for their fifth straight win Wednesday

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks struggles continued, while the Castelgar Rebels kept the pedal to the metal, downing the Hawks 6-2 at the Castlegar Rec Centre on Wednesday.

The Rebels jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead on goals from John Moeller, Edward Lindsey, and Vince Bitonti to chase Hawks goalie Owen Sikkes from the crease.

The Rebels outshot the Hawks 11-7 in the period and continued to press in the second when Evan Della Paolera converted a Jesse Belley set up for a 4-0 lead at 11:03.

The Hawks Jaxen Gemmell replied scoring shorthanded for his sixth of the season on a gutsy individual effort with 7:05 remaining in the period.

The Hawks cut the lead to 4-2 when Aiden Jenner scored unassisted just 12 seconds into the third period, but the Rebels regained a four-goal lead when Lindsey tallied his second of the night on a power-play at 14:06 and Everett Hicks sniped a shot past Liam Coulter for the 6-2 final.

The Rebels outshot the Hawks 34-24. B.V. went 0-for-6 on the power play, while Castlegar scored once on three opportunities. Lindsey was the Home Star and Gemmell earned the Away Star of the game.

Castlegar finishes November with their fifth win in a row and eight in nine games, while an injury laden B.V. team has gone 2-7-1 in the month and are looking forward to a fresh start in December. The team has been without forwards Sam Swanson, Nolan Percival, and Morgan Peace, and defencemen Conner Seib and Kevan McBean, making it all but impossible to ice a full line up.

Castlegar, 17-7-0-1, jumped into second place and now lie four points up on the 14-9-1-1 Hawks, while Nelson Leafs lead the league with a 19-4-1-1 record.

Beaver Valley’s next game goes tonight in Spokane against the Braves at 7 p.m.
