The Beaver Valley Nitehawks put on a special-teams clinic for the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Tuesday in a 6-0 victory.

Three of B.V.’s six goals were scored on the power play, in addition to a short handed goal from Keanan Patershuk as the Hawks exploded for four goals in the second period.The Border Bruins meanwhile went 0-for-5 in man advantage situations, and suffered their eighth consecutive loss.

The Hawks fired 64 shots at Bruin goalie Kai McDonald with defenceman Sheldon Hubbard scoring twice and Brett Clark recording the shut out.

Archie McKinnon opened the scoring at 15:47 of the second on the P.P. and two minutes later Lyle Frank would feed Dallas Calvin to make it 2-0, Patershuk would make it 3-0, before Hubbard wired one by the Grand Forks goalie.

Jacob Boyczuk made it 5-0, and Hubbard would nail down his fifth goal on McDonald in two games, after recording a hat trick in a 6-2 win last week in Beaver Valley.
