The Beaver Valley Nitehawks Riley Brandt is foiled on this attempt on the Castlegar goal

Beaver Valley Nitehawks take Game 1

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks defeated the Castlegar Rebels 3-1 in Game 1 of the Neil Murdoch division opener.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks opened the Neil Murdoch division playoff with a 3-1 victory over the Castlegar Rebels on Wednesday at the Beaver Valley Arena.

Taylor Stafford scored the winning goal midway through the second period when he fought off a Rebels defenceman in the right corner and his centering pass went off Castlegar goalie Patrick Zubrick and into the net.

The Rebels Hunter Jenerou opened the scoring in the first, but second period goals by Ryan Edwards and Stafford put them in the lead for good, as Keenan Patershuck would net the insurance marker early in the third.

The Hawks blasted 57 shots at the Castlegar net while Brett Clark stopped 30 in the Nitehawks net.

Game 2 goes tonight at 7 p.m. at the Hawks Nest.
