KIJHL: Beaver Valley Nitehawks hold off Posse

Defenceman Fraser Stang emerged as the overtime hero for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Saturday.

Defenceman Fraser Stang emerged as the overtime hero for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Saturday, converting a pass from Dallas Calvin at 1:03 of the extra frame to give the Hawks a come-from-behind victory over the Princeton Posse in Princeton.

The Posse’s Eric Schmidt opened the scoring on the power play after the Hawks Mitch Foyle was sent off for tripping. The score would stay 1-0 in the first period despite firing 14 shots at the Princeton goalie Spencer Huff. But at 13:19 of the second the Hawks finally found the answer when Kyle Hope netted a short-handed goal to tie it.

Calvin would capitalize two minutes later on a B.V. power play to give the Hawks the lead, but Princeton would storm back with two late goals by Eric Kubis and Kraig Leochko who scored with just four seconds on the clock to give the Posse a 3-2 lead headed into the third.

Michael Bell would net his 11th on the season on a nice set up from Taylor Stafford to tie the game at 8:39, and the Hawks would throw everything they had at Huff, but could not beat him until Stang’s marker in OT.

B.V. outshot the Posse 40 to 29 with Brett Clark getting the win for the Hawks.

Beaver Valley next hosts the Columbia Valley Rockies on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Hawks’ Nest.
