The Beaver Valley Nitehawks face elimination tonight after falling to the Kimberley Dynamiters on Saturday

KIJHL: Beaver Valley Nitehawks face elimination

The Kimberley Dynamiters took a 3-0 stranglehold on the Kootenay Conference final with a 4-3 win in OT on Saturday.

Kimberley Dynamiters’ forward Braden Saretsky scored three times including the overtime winner to lift the blasters to a 4-3 Game 3 win over the Beaver Valley Nithawks at the Kimberley Civic Centre.

The Dynamiters can sweep the series tonight when they host the Hawks and move onto the KIJHL final against the winner of the Okanagan-Shuswap final between Kamloops and Osoyoos. However, B.V. likely won’t go quietly, as the Hawks have outshot the Dynamiters in all three matches including a 30-22 edge in SOG in Game 3.

The Hawks jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead on goals from Kyle Hope and Ross Armour. But Kimberley would make it 2-1 on a power play marker from Saretsky with 1:34 remaining in the first.

After a scoreless second period, the Dynamiters took a 3-2 lead on goals from Bradie Revie and Saretsky but the Nitehawks would tie it when Lyle Frank blasted a Kadrian Klimchuck pass past Dynamiters goalie Tyson Brouwer with eight minutes to play in the third.

Saretsky scored at 7:26 in the first OT to complete the hat trick and give the Dynamiters a decided 3-0 edge in the Kootenay Conference final going into tonight’s game at 7:30 at the Civic Centre.
