Summary information from

Strong goaltending and a well-oiled power play helped push the Beaver Valley Nitehawks to an 8-4 win over the visiting Castlegar Rebels on Saturday night, and jumping to a four-goal lead in the first period sure didn’t hurt.

With the man advantage the hosts made it 3-zip thanks to Dallas Calvin (McKinnon and Fuller).

On a subsequent power play it was Braden Fuller (this time from Dallas Calvin and Archie McKinnon who got the ‘hawks to where they hardly needed to look back.

Connor Beauchemin, toward the end of the frame, got his Castlegar team on the board, set up by Carson Wornig and Aaron Brewer.

Braden Fuller, at 6:18 from Edwards and McKinnon restored BV’s four-goal bulge before Darren Medeiros replied for the Rebels, Hunter Jenerou and Jeremy McNeil assisting.

A comeback would not be in the works for the guests as the Nitehawks would not allow any rallying, scoring again with under six minutes to play in the second period – Brandt accomplishing the feat with helpers from Edwards and McKinnon.

Kody Disher, on a powerplay closed the gap before the hosts put a fine point on the proceedings with a Braden Fuller effort enabled by Calvin and Stafford.
