The Kimberley Dynamiters not only beat the Beaver Valley Nitehawks Friday night, they took their bus too.
After the Nitros beat the Beaver Valley Nitehawks 5-2 Friday night, they were left stranded at the arena when their bus wouldn’t start.
Head Coach Derek Stuart said while the bus was only down temporarily, they needed the Nitehawks help to actually leave the arena.
“We kind of had to hang around for a while as it tried to get fixed. Once we figured out that it wasn’t going to happen at night,” Stuart says. “We contacted the Beaver Valley Nitehawks and were able to get their bus around 1:15 in the morning and were able to get back to the hotel around 2 am.”
The Nitros wrapped up their road trip with a 5-nothing win over Nelson.
Kimberley’s bus was repaired within 12 hours of the initial issue and they were able to make the trip back to the East Kootenay with no further problems.
They’ll stay at home next weekend to face Columbia Valley and Golden.
