Bruins losing skid continues

Grand Forks lose tough home game to Kimberley for seventh straight loss.

Rav Shokar (#24) and Coleton Dawson (#21) of the Border Bruins chase after the puck near the Kimberley goalie during Saturday's game at Grand Forks Arena.

It was close but no cigar on Saturday at the Grand Forks Arena as the Border Bruins tried to halt their losing skid which now stands at seven after losing 5-4 to Kimberley.

The Bruins have not seen the winning side of the ledger since Nov. 24 when they beat Spokane 5-2.

The team’s record is now 10-16-2-2 for 24 points in 30 games. GF has dropped to last place in the Neil Murdoch division, three points below Spokane for the last play-off spot.

The loss on Saturday to the Nitros was tough as the Bears certainly played well enough to win but a number of untimely penalties and misconducts did the team in.

Kimberley led 2-0 after one period on goals from Tristan Pagura and Marco Campanella.

GF got on the scoreboard early in the second when Connor Gross scored on a back hand shot in close assisted by Lincoln Lane and John Skeet.

Brady Revie put the Dynamiters up 3-1 at the 4:59 mark on the second.

The teams exchanged goals in the third with Max Newton scoring twice for the Bruins and Gross picking up his second of the night. However, GF couldn’t cut the gap and fell 5-4.

Kimberley outshot GF 51-36. Spencer Kozlowski got the start for the Bruins, stopping 46 of 51 Nitro shots.

The night before, Kimberley crushed the Bruins 5-1 in the Bavarian city. Mitchell Pearson was the lone scorer for GF, assisted by Tucker Brown and Reid Robertson.

On Wednesday, GF lost 6-4 in Osoyoos to the Coyotes.

The Border Bruins are at home Tuesday for a rare mid-week home game against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.
