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.
