The Grand Forks Border Bruins head into Thursday’s regular season opener against Spokane with four straight losses in the pre-season.

On Tuesday, the Bears fell 4-1 to the powerhouse Beaver Valley Nitehawks at the Grand Forks Arena.

The Bruins gave a pretty good effort at times, but were unable to sustain an strong offensive game.

With only a couple of days unless the regular season, coach Nick Deschenes and his staff will have to find some answers in a hurry.

Game time Thursday is at 7 p.m. at the Grand Forks Arena.
