Ryan Edwards scored four goals and Brett Clark stopped 39 shots to lead the Beaver Valley Nitehawks to a decisive 8-3 win over the Kamoops Storm in Kamloops on Thursday.

Edwards netted the natural hat trick in the second period, including the winning goal on a short-handed effort at 9:53 to break open a close 2-1 game and give the Hawks an insurmountable 5-1 lead.

Dallas Calvin opened the scoring on the power play, firing a shot through traffic from the blue line that beat Storm goalie Wade Moyls at 6:46 of the first period.

The Storm would tie with 1:39 remaining in the opening frame, but Dan Holland would put the Hawks up 28 seconds later when he moved in from a difficult angle and wired a laser under the cross bar on Moyls.

The Ryan Edwards’ show would begin at 15:39 of the middle frame when he fired an Archie McKinnon set up by the Storm goalie to put the Hawks up 3-1. The 20 year old would then score back-to-back short-handed goals midway through the period, before the Storm replied making it 5-2 heading into the third.

The Nitehawks onslaught would continue, as Edwards would net his fourth in a row 26 seconds into the final frame. Fraser Stang would then send Jacob Boyczuk in on Liam MacLeod now in the Storm net to make it 7-2 before Calvin swatted in a bouncing puck to finish the scoring for the Hawks. Ian Crystal would add one more for Kamloops before the final buzzer, as the Storm outshot the Hawks 42-29 on the night.

Game 6 goes tonight at the B.V. Arena with the puck drop at 7:30 p.m.
