In the KIJHL, The Kimberley Dynamiters picked up two more wins over the weekend.
The Nitros beat the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a close 2-1 victory Friday, followed by a rough 8-3 win over the Grand Forks Border Bruins.
Coach Derek Stuart says the Nitehawks put them to the test.
“Against Beaver Valley, it was a real tight game, a lot of neutral zone play, not too many scoring chances at all,” Stuart says. “It was good to see our guys could play a low shot, low scoring game and come out on top when we didn’t have our best game.”
Stuart says it was a rough match-up with the Border Bruins, but there were some highlights to the Nitros game.
“I thought we came out with a lot more energy, our feet were moving right away,” Stuart says. “We were able to dictate the pace and set a tone that they obviously couldn’t keep up to.”
Elsewhere, Fernie lost to the Border Bruins 6-3 Friday before shutting out Creston 2-nothing Saturday.
The Columbia Valley Rockies split a home and home series with Golden this weekend.
The Rockies won 4-2 in Golden Friday, before losing to the Rockets 4-3 in overtime Saturday
