The Grand Forks Border Bruins lost 5-2 on the road to Summerland in their only game this week.

The game saw the return of last year’s captain Nathan Cory, who should help the team on defence and with his leadership.

The Bruins fell behind 2-0 after the first period after Daylan Robertson and Ryan Donaldson scored for Summerland.

Max Newton put GF on the board at 18:54 of the second period, assisted by Dakota Little and Jackson Purvis.

Paulsen Lautard put the home team up 3-1 at 7:56 of that same period.

Cam McLennan scored a power play marker for the Bears at 11:12 of the third period assisted by Jeremy McGregor and Reid Robertson to cut the lead to one.

It was all Summerland after that as Donaldson scored a pair to put the game away.

Dominic Stadynk was in net for Grand Forks and stopped 24 of 29 shots.

The Bruins outshot the Steam 39-29.

GF is back in action Tuesday in Castlegar with a game against the defending league champion Rebels. The Rebs just received high scoring winger Diego Bartlett back from a Junior A try-out.

The Bruins return to Grand Forks Arena on Oct. 12 and 13 for home games against Fernie and North Okanagan respectively.
