Beaver Valley Nitehawks clinch Kootenay Conference title with win over Creston

The B.V. Nitehawks defeated the top team in the Eddie Mountain division to capture the Kooteny Conference title.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks clinched the Kootenay Conference title with a 2-1 win on Wednesday in a head-to-head tilt against the Eddie Murdoch division leading Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

The 37-4-1-2 Nitehawks needed just one victory to secure the regular season title and can clinch the KIJHL overall points title with either one more victory in its last three matches or a loss by the Osoyoos Coyotes.

Mitch Foyle scored his third straight game-winning goal to lift the Hawks to a 2-1 victory to give B.V. its 15th straight win.

Kevan McBean notched his second of the season on the power play midway through the opening frame to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead. But Creston battled back and Austin Anselmo netted his own power-play goal with 4:03 to play in the period.

Creston pressed in the second outshooting B.V. 12-6, but Hawks goalie Tallon Kramer was stellar once again holding the Thunder Cats off the board the rest of the way.

Foyle tallied his 16th of the season and sixth game winning goal in just 21 games after joining the Hawks at the end of November.

Kramer earned the game star for the Nitehawks for his 30 saves, while his counterpart Brock LeFebvre earned game star for Creston with 28 saves.

The Nitehawks next face the Columbia Valley Rockies on Saturday before returning home Feb. 17 for their final regular season home game against the Kimberley Dynamite.
