Beaver Valley silences the Storm in Game 2

Beaver Valley Nitehawks bounced back from a Game 1 loss to tie the best-of-seven KIJHL final with a 6-2 win over Kamloops on Saturday.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks bounced back from a series opening loss to take Game 2 in the KIJHL final with a 6-2 victory over the Kamloops Storm on Saturday.

The Nitehawks erupted for three goals in less than four minutes near the end of the second period to erase a 2-1 deficit and take a 4-2 lead into the third. Braden Fuller would net the winner at 1:36 taking a pass from Dallas Calvin and beating Storm goalie Wade Moyls to give the Hawks the lead for good.

B.V. jumped out to an early lead 3:21 into the first when Ryan Edwards set up Riley Brandt for his 10th goal of the playoffs. Kamloops would storm back with goals from Brock Balson and Daniel Buchanan 34 seconds apart midway through the period.

Trailing 2-1 the Hawks turned it on in the second, firing 16 shots at Moyls before finally finding the equalizer with 4:22 left to play in the period when Dan Holland would net his first of two on the night.

After Fuller put the Hawks up, Calvin and Fuller would team up again 44 seconds later, with Calvin bulging the twine this time.

The Storm would make a goaltending change between periods, but the Hawks would keep the pressure on Kamloops and Holland would net his second of the night and eighth of the playoffs on a nice feed from Edwards at 12:16 of the final frame. Edwards would get his third point of the night, and 33rd in the post season to lead all playoff scorers, at 4:44 to round out the scoring.

The Nitehawks outshot the Storm 42-31 on the night.

Game 3 and 4 go Monday and Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Hawks Nest in Fruitvale.
