The Beaver Valley Nitehawks continued their assault on the Rebels from Castlegar on Friday with an 8-2 rout at the Castlegar Complex to take a 3-0 stranglehold on the Murdoch division semifinal.

The Hawks’ defencemen stepped up and contributed in the offensive end as Walker Sidoni and Sheldon Hubbard each scored a pair of goals and added an assist to lead the Nitehawks.

Sidoni scored his first of the night and what proved to be the winner, when he took a pass from Riley Brandt and fired it by Patrick Zubic at 14:28 of the second period to put the Hawks up 3-1.

B.V. opened the scoring when Mitch Foyle converted a nice setup from Jacob Boychuk just 80 seconds into the first period. Castlegar’s Kody Disher would tie it at 14:51 before Hubbard put the Hawks up for good on the power play two minutes later.

Sidoni began a second period barrage that saw the Hawks score five times to take a 7-2 lead into the third. Dan Holland, Ryan Edwards, Braden Fuller, and Sidoni with his second of the night, tallied for the Hawks while Hubbard rounded out the scoring in the third period at 15:10.

Brandt also kicked in with four assists, and has been a force up front for the Hawks throughout the series. Edwards and Holland had a goal and two assists for the Hawks, and Brett Clark stopped 36 shots in a solid effort between the pipes.

Game 4 goes Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Castlegar Rec Complex.
