first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsThe performance on the ice was much better, but the result was the same for the Nelson Leafs.Dallas Calvin continues to be a Leaf killer, scoring the game-winning goal, his second of the game and seventh point of the series, late in the second period to lift the Beaver Valley Nitehawks to a 4-2 victory over the Nelson Leafs in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff action Wednesday in Fruitvale.The Hawks now own a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Murdoch Division playoff series with game three set for Friday at the NDCC Arena in Nelson.After being pounding by the Hawks 13-2 in the series opener Tuesday, the Leafs had some egg to remove from their faces — and did just that shelling Beaver Valley starter Mike Vlanich for 16 shots in the opening period.However, it was the Hawks scoring first and who else but Calvin doing the damage on the power play. With Leaf center Dallon Stoddart in the box for hooking, Calvin combined with Taylor Love and Tyler Collins to beat Marcus Beesley in the Leaf net.The trio of Love, Collins and Calvin have a whopping 18 points in two games.Unlike Tuesday, when the Leafs completely destructed, the Green and White rallied to tie the game before the period ended. Dustin Johnson of BCHL fame beat Vlanich.In the second Daniel Bishop regained the lead for Beaver Valley before Johnson, shorthanded tied the contest at 2-2.That set the stage for Calvin to net the winner with assists from Colton Donselaar and Nelson Minor Hockey product Ryon Sookro.Beaver Valley out shot Nelson 18-10 in the second period.Bishop, with his second of the game, iced the game by scoring into the empty net with 20 seconds remaining in the game.The Hawks held a slight 38-35 margin in shots.GAME NOTES: Nelson lost two key defenceman during the game. Both Tyler Parfeniuk and team captain Taylor O’Neil were ejected from the game for checking-from-behind penalties.

I just had my hands down on her and I waited, waited…In the stretch, I had no traffic, I was on the outside and I was in the clear, no complaints, no nothing.” KOSTA HRONIS, OWNER, NANCY FROM NAIROBI, WINNER: “She really loves this course here at Santa Anita and she loves the (distance of a) mile.”NOTES: Winning owners Kosta and Peter Hronis are from Delano, CA. JOHN SADLER, NANCY FROM NAIROBI, WINNER: “When I scratched her from the Santa Ana (March 26), she didn’t really miss much time. She just had of touch of colic a few days before the race, just enough, you know with a good horse, you don’t want to take a chance. So, we scratched her and it was hard because it was a really tempting spot and I really wanted to be in there.“The Gamely will be next. My other mare, Elektrum ran well too, went through traffic and came flying to be fifth. So we should have two for the Gamely, although we might try to separate them.”last_img read more
