Another Beaver Valley/Castlegar Murdoch Final, another Game seven

first_imgFor the second time in as many seasons the Beaver Valley Nitehawks and Castlegar Rebels will need a Game seven to determine the Murdoch Division Champion.The Hawks, paced by Kootenay International Junior Hockey League scoring leader Ryan Edwards, forced a deciding game by stopping the Rebels 5-0 in Fruitvale.Edwards scored twice to lead the Hawks.In three series wins against the Rebels, Edwards has scored five times for seven points. In three Castlegar wins, Jordan Gluck has allowed four goals.Gluck did not finish the game Monday and was replaced by Connor Beachamp five minutes into the third period.So it’s safe to say the star that shows up will no doubt have a say in the final outcome.That is unless a role player like Justin Niminken steps up like he did in 2012, scoring the game-winning goal with three minutes remaining in the game to spark the Hawks to a 5-3 win in Game seven.Game time is 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Castlegar.The winner advances to the Kootenay Conference Final against the Golden/Fernie champ.last_img
