The Beaver Valley Nitehawks' Dan Holland had a three-point night as he helped the Hawks to an 8-2 victory over the Revelstoke Grizzlies Sunday.

Beaver Valley Nitehawks skate to two of three wins on weekend

The Nitehawks soared back from a Friday night loss with convincing wins over Kimberley and Revelstoke on Saturday and Sunday.

After dropping a 3-1 decision to Kimberley Friday night, the

Beaver Valley Nitehawks responded with an offensive outburst in back-to-back

wins over the Kimberley Dynamiters and the Revelstoke Grizzlies Saturday and Sunday.

In a spirited match Sunday, both Dan Holland and defenceman

Derek Lashuk had a goal and two assists to lead the Nitehawks to an 8-2 win

over the Grizzlies to follow up a 5-1 victory on the home end of a home-and-home

with Kimberley Saturday night at the Beaver Valley Arena.

After early markers by Connor Brown-Maloski and Kurt Black, Lashuk

netted the winner on a shorthanded goal taking a pass from Levi Kress then dancing

around a Revelstokes’ defenceman before

wristing a lazer past starter Aaron Brandoli to make it 3-0 at 3:42 of the

first period.

The Grizzlies’ T.J Christensen made it 3-1 just 20 seconds

later finishing a nice passing play from Tyler Reay on the power play.

Despite fairly even play in the first period in which each

team had nine shots on goal, the Nitehawks were able to capitalize on their opportunities

while the Grizzlies were foiled by some great saves by Zach Perehudoff.

AP Sam Swanson of Fruitvale buried his first goal in just

his second game as a Nitehawk, after a perfect setup from Holland as he drew

the defenceman and goalie to the right post, before dishing to Swanson in the

slot.

Dallas Calvin made it 5-1 picking up a perfect breakaway

pass from Brown-Maloski and beating Brandoli with a quick move then sliding it

between his legs. Holland then made it 6-1 after intercepting a pass and

walking in all alone and beating the Grizzlies’ goalie with a backhand into the

top shelf.

Walker Sidoni made it 7-1 on the powerplay with a blast from

the point, and after Revelstoke got one back, Holland and Calvin teamed up to

finish the scoring. The Boston native delivered a perfect pass up the middle as

Calvin broke for the opening, split the D, and made no mistake rifling the puck

five-hole to notch his second of the night and 20th of the season.

Michael Bell and Calvin each scored twice to lead the Hawks

to the 5-1 victory over Kimberley Saturday. Calvin now leads the Hawks in

scoring, and with 48 points, sits just six points back of the KIJHL leader Nelson’s

Colton Schell despite playing nine fewer games.

The win puts the Hawks in a tie with Castlegar who defeated

Nelson on Sunday 5-3. The two teams each have 53 points, but Nelson and

Castlegar have two games in hand. The Nitehawks next home game goes Sunday at 1

p.m. against the Grand Forks Border Bruins.
