Beaver Valley Nitehawks split

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks won their fourth game in a row against Columbia Valley at the Hawks Nest Friday night.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks won their fourth game in a row against Columbia Valley at the Hawks Nest Friday night but couldn’t keep the streak going in a road game against Osoyoos Saturday.

After defeating the Rockies handily 7-2, the Nitehawks looked like a different team in Osoyoos as they fell to the Coyotes 6-1 the next night.

Despite outshooting the Coyotes 15-8 in the first period, the Nitehawks trailed 2-0 on goals from Brett Anderson and a power-play marker from Troy Maclise. Osoyoos would extend the lead to 3-0 in the second period, before the Hawks Jacob Boyczuk got the Nitehawks on the board in the third period converting a pass from Keenan Paterschuck and Michael Bell to make it 3-1. But frustration set in as B.V. took six penalties in the final 12 minutes of the third period, and the Coyotes made them pay.

The ‘Yotes leading scorer Colin Chmelka netted two power-play goals in the the final frame, while Brendan Smith rounded out the scoring in the last minute, as Osoyoos went 4-for-9 with the extra man and outshot the Hawks 40-34 including a 19-8 margin in the third period.

On Friday, it was a different Hawks’ team at the Beaver Valley Arena as Dallas Calvin netted a hat trick and a five-point night to lead the Hawks to a 7-2 victory over the Columbia Valley Rockies. Taylor Stafford and Russell Mortlock picked up singles for the Hawks, while Michael Bell would score the final two goals, as the Hawks outshot the Rockies 43-32 for the win. Archie McKinnon also had a stellar game, adding four assists on the night.

The Nitehawks play the Grand Forks Border Bruins tonight at 7 p.m. at the B.V. Arena. The Bruins are coming off a pair of wins against Spokane, 5-2, and Golden, 6-4, on the weekend.
