Undermanned Bruins lose in OT to Spokane

Spokane beats GF 3-2 in an overtime thriller to come within one point of fourth place in the division.

Spokane goalie Jon Manlow makes the save on Bruins' forward Lincoln Lane in the first period of Saturday's game at the Grand Forks Arena.

Playing in front of a sparse Saturday night crowd, caused in no small way by the chilly temperatures, and missing several key players, the Grand Forks Border Bruins lost a tough overtime thriller to the Spokane Braves.

Kurtis Redding got the game winner with a power play marker at 4:22 of overtime to give the Braves the 3-2 win.

Hayden Boring had tied the game for Spokane with two minutes left in the game and the Braves trailing 2-1.

Scoring for GF were defencemen Nathan Cory and Lincoln Lane.

Missing in action for the Bruins were former top scorer Jackson Purvis, Kyle Dolly, and top goalie Domincik Stadnyk.

Kai McDonald did have a solid outing in net for the Bruins, stopping 48 of 51 Brave shots.

The Bruins are now only a single point above Spokane in the battle for the fourth and final play-off spot in the Neil Murdoch division.
