KIJHL: Beaver Valley Nitehawks stall on road

Despite a new bus, the Beaver Valley Nitehawks road trip did not go as smoothly as anticipated.

Despite a new bus, the Beaver Valley Nitehawks road trip did not go as smoothly as anticipated as the Hawks dropped 2-of-3 on its journey to the Okanagan on the weekend.

The Nitehawks suffered a 5-3 loss to the Summerland Steam Sunday, after a close 7-6 overtime setback to the Chiefs Friday. On the bright side they did salvage a 7-2 victory over the North Okanagan Knights Saturday, in what has to be a disappointing start to November.

The Hawks ran into a hot goalie on Sunday as they outshot the Steam 40-30, but fell behind 3-1 in the first period and could not finish the comeback despite drawing within one early in the second period.

It was just the Steam’s seventh win on the season as they sit in fourth place of the Okanagan division, behind both NOK and the division-leading Chiefs.

Nitehawks’ new recruit Braden Fuller from Grande Prairie had a four-point game against the Knights on Saturday scoring two goals and adding two assists, while Dallas Calvin added two goals and an assist.

On Friday the Hawks blew a 5-2 third-period lead, as the Chiefs’ league-leading scorers Nick Josephs rattled off a natural hat trick, including the winner in overtime, to give Kelowna the 7-6 victory.

The Nitehawks return home to play the Fernie Ghostriders on Friday at the B.V. Arena at 7:30 p.m. and the Spokane Braves Sunday at 7 p.m.
