It was a busy week for the Grand Forks Border Bruins junior B team. The team played four games in six days, winning two. Both losses came against KIJHL leading Nelson including a 6-3 tilt on Saturday where centre Max Newton had to put on the pads and get between the pipes after starting goalie Dominik Stadnyk was injured in the second period.

With the Bruins other goalie, Kai McDonald, suspended, the Bruins were looking at a possible forfeit. It took about 20 minutes for the Bruins to convince Newton, who had played goalie years ago, to suit up.

Grand Forks were up 2-1 when Stadynk was injured. Newton played superb, stopping 32 Leaf shots with extra coaching help from McDonald, who shouted instructions to him from the stands.

Unfortunately, Nelson eventually broke the game open with four unanswered goals to start the third period.

The result was certainly a far cry better than the 10-3 drubbing the Bruins took Wednesday in Nelson.

On Friday, GF beat Golden at home 6-4 behind a pair of goals each from Michael Rand and Franco Colapaola.

Sunday the Bruins traveled across the border to take on the Spokane Braves. Connor Gross led GF to a 5-2 win with a pair of goals.

Grand Forks is in action Tuesday night in Fruitvale against Beaver Valley.
