Hawks lure Posse into nest

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks welcome Princeton Posse to the B.V. Arena this evening at 7:30 p.m. to kick off a three-game weekend.

The Nitehawks face a Posse team mired in last place in the Okanagan division with a 13-21-0-3 record, that includes a 7-5 loss to Grand Forks last week.

The Hawks then play a pair of Neil Murdoch division rivals starting with Castlegar Rebels in Castlegar Saturday at 7:30 p.m., followed up with a return-trip to Grand Forks to face the Border Bruins in an afternoon tilt on Sunday at 2 p.m.

With 61 points, the Nitehawks trail the Nelson Leafs by three points for the division lead, but still have a game in hand. Castlegar sits comfortably in third with 40 points while Grand Forks and Spokane are tied for fourth place with 30.
