The Beaver Valley Nitehawks did something they haven’t done in a very long time, they lost to the Grand Forks Border Bruins 3-2 in overtime.
Bruins goaltender Robert Dunsmuir stopped 44 of 46 shots and Chris Osellame scored just over a minute into the overtime frame on a power play to equal the number of games won by Grand Forks all of last season.
A holding penalty 36 seconds into the OT period put the Bruins on the man advantage, and Osellame made no mistake converting a Tyler Wagner pass to beat Nitehawks netminder Dominic Stadnyk.
The Hawks took a second period 2-1 lead on goals by Brandon Butlin and Luke Reimer, but Kublia Barlas notched his second of the night to tie it with 2:44 left to play in the third period.
The Nitehawks won the opening match on Friday 5-0 with Zach Perehudoff stopping 28 shots to earn the shutout.
Connor Brown-Maloski and Nick Perez each added a goal and an assist for the Hawks while Brad Gaboury, Danny Vlanich and Kurt Black rounded out the scoring.
