Beaver Valley Nitehawks roll over Golden Rockets

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks won their fifth in a row, steamrolling the Golden Rockets 6-2 at the Hawks Nest in Fruitvale Friday.

Sam Swanson scored his first of two goals on the night, netting the winning goal at just over a minute into the second period to lead the Beaver Valley Nitehawks to a 6-2 victory over the Golden Rockets Friday at the B.V. Arena.

The goal put the Hawks up 3-0 after first period tallies from Taylor Stafford and Jeremy Lucchini. Riley Brandt would extend it to 4-0 before the Rockets got on the board with a shorthanded marker from Ian Desrosier at 7:55 of the middle frame. Bowen Alcock cut the lead to two, but Brandt and Swanson would restore the four goal lead with third period goals.

Dan Holland returned to the line up and pitched in with two assists, while Andrew Clark added three helpers for the Hawks.

The Nitehawks outshot the Rockets 47-27 with Brett Clark getting the win, and clinching a playoff spot for the Hawks who lead the Neil Murdoch division with 69 points.

The Hawks next game goes against the Creston Valley Thunder Cats on Tuesday at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7 p.m. The Cats have been scorching hot, and are currently on a 10 game winning streak.
