The Beaver Valley Nitehawks dropped a 4-2 match to the 100-Mile House Wranglers but bounced back with a 2-1 win over Kamloops Storm on Saturday in Kamloops.

Beaver Valley Nitehawks split Okanagan-Shuswap conference matches

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks won one-of-two in their final tilts against out-of-conference teams on the weekend.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks goalie Drake Poirier was all but unbeatable on Saturday night as he backstopped B.V. to a 2-1 victory over the Kamloops Storm on Saturday, following a 4-2 loss to 100-Mile House on Friday night.

Poirier stopped 17 shots in the third period and 44 on the night to ensure the two points over the Doug Birks division-leading Storm on what was the Nitehawks final road trip of the season.

With the score tied at 1-1, B.V.’s leading scorer Mitch Foyle beat Storm netminder Jacob Mullen with assists from Spencer McLean and Ross Armour to net the winner at 16:45 of the third period.

The Hawk’s Allan Pruss opened the scoring at 13:55 of the first period finishing a play from Reid Anderson before the Storm’s top scorer Ian Chrystal tied it with 5:40 remaining in the middle frame.

Mullen stopped 32 in the Storm net while B.V. went 0-for-1 on the power play and Kamloops 0-for-2.

The win follows hard on the heels of a disappointing loss against the Wranglers on Friday night.

B.V. outshot 100-Mile House 41-31 but couldn’t find the equalizer despite 20 third-period shots. Tyler Garcia scored what proved to be the winner at 4:43 of the middle frame, and Tyler Hartman would put the Hawks within one with 8:42 left in the third, but Wrangler goalie Quinn Ferris shut the door after that and Garcia would ice it beating Poirier with under four minutes to go in regulation to halt a five-game losing streak for the Wranglers.

McLean counted the other marker for B.V. while Brett Harris and Stephen Egan replied for the Wranglers.

B.V. remains in top spot in the Neil Murdoch division with 61 points, seven up on the second-place Castlegar Rebels. The Nitehawks next game goes in Nelson on Wednesday before they return to the Hawks Nest on Friday to take on Spokane.
