Hawks host Bruins Saturday

BV Nitehawks face Grand Forks at the BV Arena at 7:30pm.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks will try to get back in the win column after picking up just one point in an Okanagan swing last weekend.

The Hawks are now tied with Castlegar for top spot in the Neil Murdoch division after dropping a 5-3 game to the Kelowna Chiefs last Friday, then tying the North Okanagan Knights 3-3 on Saturday.

Both teams have 27 points, although the Hawks have played one less game than the Rebels.

Beaver Valley travels to Spokane to take on the Braves on Friday, then returns home Saturday to host the Grand Forks Border Bruins. The Hawks beat the Braves handily in a 6-2 win Oct. 13, but suffered one of their three losses to Spokane in a 2-1 decision on Oct. 3.

With goalie Drake Poirier out of the line up, the Hawks picked up goalie Billy Gorn from Campbell River to join Trail native Jason Mailhiot as the B.V. tandem.

The Bruins meanwhile have won two of their last three games, including a 7-3 win over the Golden Rockets on Saturday. Led by a three-goal performance from Dylan Haney, and a five-point game from newly acquired Jordan Robertson, who has seven points in three games, the much improved team is in fourth spot in the Murdoch division with a 6-11-0-2 record.

Game time is 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Beaver Valley Arena.
