Nitehawks rebound

In a lively, penalty-filled affair, the Nitehawks power play went 3-for-5 as they engaged in a see-saw battle with the Border Bruins.

Jacob Boyczuk scored once and added three assists to help the Beaver Valley Nitehawks bounce back from a 3-2 loss to the Kelowna Chiefs Friday with a 6-3 victory over the Grand Forks Border Bruins Saturday.

In a lively, penalty-filled affair, the Nitehawks power play went 3-for-5 as they engaged in a see-saw battle with the Border Bruins that the Hawks manage to pull out in the third period.

Michael Rand and the Hawks’ Ryan Edwards would exchange goals in the first period to make it 1-1 before a five goal outburst in the second period. Mitch Foyle would net a pair of markers in the first five minutes of the second, before Jackson Purvis and Connor Gross replied with back-to-back goals for the Border Bruins within 90 seconds of each other midway through the frame to tie it at 3-3.

However, Andrew Clark would convert an offering from Keenan Patershuck to net the winner at 6:05 of the period, sending it to the third with the Hawks up 4-3.

Jeremy Lucchini and Boyczuk would finish the scoring for the Nitehawks as they outshot the Bruins 52-29 on the night. Brett Clark got the win in net for the Hawks while Kai McDonald took the loss for Grand Forks.

On Friday, the Chiefs outlasted the Nitehawks putting an end to their 10-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory at the Hawks Nest Friday.

Jagger Bowles scored the winning goal at 18:06 of the third period, as the Chiefs hung on in the final minutes despite Hawk pressure for their 24th win.

Walker Sidoni opened the scoring with assists going to Dallas Calvin and Fraser Stang, but Kelowna’s Chase Astorino would tie it at 12:50 of the first. The Chiefs would enjoy a pair of two-man advantages in the second frame as Brady Mende would capitalize on the second opportunity at 3:20 with Patershuck and Russell Mortlock off for roughing and high-sticking.

After Bowles made it 3-1, Calvin would draw the Hawks within one on a PP of their own at 12:51 but B.V. could not find the equalizer despite a flurry of opportunities.

Clark stopped 35 shots in net for the Hawks while Tyler O’Donnell stopped 36 for Kelowna.
