KIJHL: Bruins shut-out Rockies at home

The Grand Forks Border Bruins won their second game in a row.

The Grand Forks Border Bruins won their second game in a row with a convincing 4-0 win at home over the Columbia Valley.

The Bruins got off to a strong start scoring three goals in the first period with Nico Sidoni, Matt Lucero and Lincoln Lane scoring.

GF top scorer Max Newton got an insurance marker at 3:45 of the third period assisted by Tucker Brown and Lane.

Jacob Mullen picked up the shut-out and the win in net turning away all 34 CV shots.

On Nov. 1, the Bruins snapped their seven game winless skid with an exciting 5-4 win on the road over 100 Mile House.

The Border Bears actually had to crawl back from a 4-0 deficit after two periods. They did it one goal at a time, with Max Newton finally getting GF on the board at 14:53 assisted by Lincoln Lane and Matt Lucero.

Bryson Yee (assisted by Michael Rand and Kyle Doak) brought the Bruins to within two a couple of minutes later.

Rand’s power play goal at 8:36 brought the Bruins to life as they pulled with a single goal, 4-3. Assisting Rand were Newton and Lucero.

Defenceman Lincoln Lane tied the score up and forced overtime with 35 seconds left in the third. Lane was assisted by veterans Tucker Brown and Rand.

Rand got the winning goal at 3:04 of overtime assisted by Brown and Reid Robertson.

Kiernan Matsuba picked up the win in net for GF turning back 26 of 30 100 Mile House shots.

On Halloween night, the Bruins travelled to Kamloops to face the Storm.

Despite a strong showing from Max Newton, who picked up a goal and two assists, the Bruins fell 6-3 to Kamloops.

The Border Bears are 7-12-1 on the season for 15 points; ten behind fourth place Spokane.

The Bruins were in action Monday night after press time in Fruitvale against the 11-4-1 Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

GF is back at home on Sunday, Nov. 16 for a game against Kamloops at 4 p.m. at Jack Goddard Memorial Arena.
