KIJHL: Kimberley Dynamiters take two games in Beaver Valley

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks fell to the Kimberley Dynamiters 6-3 in the Kootenay Conference playoff on Thursday at the Hawks Nest.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks are facing adversity for the first time in their playoff run, down 2-0 in their best-of-seven Kootenay Conference final, following a 6-3 defeat at the hands of the Kimberley Dynamiters Thursday night at the Hawks Nest.

Jordan Brush would score what proved to be the winner on the power play midway through the second period to give the Dynamiters a 4-1 lead. The Dynamiters capitalized on every scoring chance, tallying four goals on 10 shots to chase Nitehawks goalie Carson Schamerhorn from the net.

Coy Prevost counted two goals and an assist for Kimberley while the game’s star Braden Saretsky added three helpers. For the Nitehawks Spencer McLean was the Hawks’ best player, scoring twice for B.V.

The series will resume in Kimberley on Saturday and Sunday, where the Nitehawks will have to win one if they expect to return to Beaver Valley to play a game on Tuesday at the Hawks Nest.
