KIJHL: Hawks, Rebels play to thrilling overtime draw

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks and Castlegar Rebels put on a show for a packed house at the Hawks Nest on Tuesday.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks and Castlegar Rebels put on a show for a packed house at the Hawks Nest on Tuesday.

Despite playing to a 1-1 draw, the game was a heart-stopping back and forth affair with big hits, stellar offensive plays, stingy defence, and phenomenal goaltending.

B.V. goalie Tallon Kramer and Rebels netminder Logan Sawka stopped 80 shots between them to garner player of the game for each team.

Kramer was particularly good in the second period. After Mike Bhatoa put the Rebels up 1-0 three minutes into the middle frame, Kramer was spectacular the rest of the way, repelling a Rebels attack that outshot the Hawks 14-7 in the period.

Tyler Ghiradosi evened the score at the 14:35 mark of the third, taking a pass from Ryan Terpsma and making a slick move to the backhand to beat Sawka high. But the Rebel goalie responded stymieing a relentless Hawks attack time and again, through the remainder of the game and two overtime periods, highlighted by a breakaway save from Kramer in the dying seconds, after Sawka robbed Braden Fuller and Jace Weegar on a 2-on-1.

Tallon stopped 37 shots on the night and Sawka 43 including 10 in the 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 OT periods.

The Nitehawks played the Nelson Leafs on Wednesday night but scores from the game were unavailable at press time.
