No treats for Golden as Border Bruins put a Halloween eve thrasing on

The Grand Forks Border Bruins were all business Friday night crushing the Golden Rockets 7-3 at home.

Brandon Savaia of the Bruins comes from behind the net trying to score on Rockets goalie Brody Nelson during the second period of Friday's game.

Despite the fact that it was Halloween eve, the Border Bruins handed out no treats to the visiting Golden Rockets; Instead, GF tricked the visitors into thinking they had a chance in the game before crushing them.

The Border Bears got off to a quick start with two early goals, Dylan Haney and new addition Jordan Robertson. Golden came to tie with a pair of power play goals late in the first and early in the second period.

The Bruins than scored three unanswered later in the second stanza to pull away. Scoring were Dylan Haney with two, and hometown boy Brandon Savaia. Golden got another play goal early in the third from Tanner Wit to cut the lead to 5-3. The Rockets would have no late rally as Bruins’ forward Chad Grambo scored twice to put the game away and give GF the 7-3 win.

Haney, with the hat-trick and an assist, picked up the team’s game star and was also honoured with the KIJHL’s Who’s Hot in the KI spot.

Anthony Galliart picked up the win in net for the Bruins turning back 35 Rocket shots.

The Bruins return to action next Friday with a home game against Princeton.

Bear bits – The Bruin players will be helping the Rotary Club tonight (Oct. 31) at the annual Halloween bonfire by donating their time and working security.
