B.V. Nitehawks: Castlegar Rebels win in OT

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks have outshot opponents in all three of their games, but are still searching for their first win

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks have outshot opponents in all three of their games in the young KIJHL season, but are still searching for their first win after dropping a 4-3 double-overtime decision to the Castlegar Rebels on Tuesday night.

With the score tied 3-3 in the second 3-on-3 overtime, Aaron Petten notched his third goal on the night, beating Hawks goalie Carson Schamerhorn to give the Rebels their first victory of the season.

It was another blow to a Hawks team that has controlled the flow of most games this season,  but remain unrewarded for their efforts.

Rossland’s Ross Armour got the Hawks on the board on the power play at 2:45 of the first, but Castlegar would tie it at 15:38 of the second period when Carson Wornig converted a nice passing play from Jeremy McNeil and Darren Medeiros.

The Nitehawks Jacob Boyczuk put the Hawks in front on a shorthanded effort 66 seconds later, but the Rebels replied again with Aaron Petten netting two in a four minute span to give the Rebels a 3-2 lead heading into the third period. Both Petten’s goals were setup by veterans Bryan Lubin of Michigan and Castlegar native Diego Bartlett who is playing in his fifth season in the KIJHL with the Rebels.

However, with time winding down the Rebels Ryan Teslak was sent off for boarding, and Armour would net his second of the night on the power play to tie the game with just 1:35 remaining in regulation.

The Nitehawks outshot the Rebels 19-5 in the period and 54-28 overall, but Castlegar’s Patrick Zubick and Austin Wells were sharp in net for the Rebels.

Schamerhorn took the loss in net for the home team, while defenceman Lyle Frank added two assists for the Hawks.

Beaver Valley next hosts the Nelson Leafs on Friday at the Hawks’ Nest at 7:30 p.m.
