Beaver Valley Nitehawks forward Jace Weegar beats Castlegar Rebel goalie Austin Wells to net what proved to be the winning goal as the Hawks cruised to a 7-2 victory over their Neil Murdoch division rivals Saturday at the B.V. Arena.

Beaver Valley Nitehawks dominate Castlegar Rebels

The B.V. Nitehawks scored four power-play goals on their way to a 7-2 drubbing of the Castlegar Rebels on Saturday at the B.V. Arena.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks’ Jace Weegar scored twice including the winner to lead the Hawks to a 7-2 victory over the Castlegar Rebels on Saturday at the B.C. Arena.

Weegar took a pretty cross-ice pass from Michael Pruss, and made no mistake in sending into the open net to give the Hawks a 3-1 lead at 14:49 of the second period. The goal would prove to be the winner as the Nitehawks dominated the Rebels outshooting them 60 to 39 in the game and going 4-for-7 on the power play, including three in the third period.

Taylor Stafford also had another great game for the Hawks scoring twice and adding two assists for a four-point night, while Weegar netted two goals and added an assist, Ross Armour had a goal and two assists, and Brayden Horcoff had a three assist night for the Hawks. Drake Poirier had one of his best efforts in net for the Hawks stopping 37 of 39 shots on the night.
