The Beaver Valley Nitehawks won their fifth game in a row against Columbia Valley at the Hawks Nest Friday night but couldn’t keep the streak going in a road game against Osoyoos Saturday.

After defeating the Rockies handily 7-2, the Nitehawks couldn’t duplicate their effort on the road falling to the Coyotes 6-1 the next night.

Despite outshooting the Coyotes 15-8 in the first period, the Coyotes led where it counted 2-0 on goals from Brett Anderson and a power-play marker from Troy Maclise. Osoyoos would extend the lead in the second period when Jackson DeMatos scored his 17th of the season, beating Hawks goalie Brett Clark.

The Hawks Jacob Boyczuk would finally get the Nitehawks on the board in the third period converting a pass from Keenan Paterschuck and Michael Bell to make it 3-1. But frustration set in as the Nitehawks took six penalties in the last half of the third period, and the Coyotes made them pay.

With Bell off for interference, the ‘Yotes leading scorer Colin Chmelka would score at 6:39, and again on the power-play at 2:38. Brendan Smith would round out the scoring with under a minute to play, as Osoyoos went 4-for-9 on the power play and outshot the Hawks 40-34 including a 19-8 margin in the third period.

On Friday, it was a different Hawks team at the Beaver Valley Arena as Dallas Calvin netted a hat trick and a five-point night to lead the Hawks to a 7-2 victory over the Columbia Valley Rockies. In a physical contest Calvin would score three of the first four goals as the Nitehawks took a 4-1 lead into the third period.

Taylor Stafford and Russell Mortlock picked up singles for the Hawks, while Michael Bell would score the final two goals, as the Hawks outshot the Rockies 43-32 for the win. Archie McKinnon also had a stellar game, adding four assists on the night while Grayson Sharpe got the win in net for B.V.

The Nitehawks next game goes Tuesday night at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7 p.m. versus Grand Forks Border Bruins.
