The Beaver Valley Nitehawks continue to roll, winning their fourth in a row on Sunday with a 4-1 win over Spokane, after gaining a measure of revenge against Castlegar Friday with a 6-3 victory over the Rebels.

Brett Clark had a successful return to the Nitehawks’ net picking up his first win in his first start for B.V. in two seasons. Clark stopped 30 shots in a heated affair that saw over 60 minutes in penalties handed out, and it was Brett Roberts’ power play goal that proved the winner at 4:05 of the first period. The Hawks defenceman scored his eighth of the season on a set up from Michael Pruss and Ryan Terpsma to give B.V. A 2-0 lead.

The win is B.V.’s 29th of the year and puts them 10 points up on the 25-12-2-0 Rebels for top spot in the Neil Murdoch division, with 17 games remaining in the Hawks’ 2016 regualar-season campaign.

Tyler Ghiradosi continued his impressive play, scoring his second goal in as many games on a McKoy Hauk pass 6:40 into the first period. Braden Fuller then tallied his 22nd goal of the season on a short handed effort with just 11 seconds to play in the first to make it 3-0, as the Hawks outshot Spokane 24-6.

With Spokane serving a too-many-men penalty, Hauk made it 4-0 finishing a pretty passing play from Fuller and Jace Weegar for his seventh goal and 31st point of the season.
