Beaver Valley Nitehawks host Fernie Ghostriders

The Hawks face off against Fernie tonight at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7:30 pm.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks look to keep their five game winning streak going as they play a home-and-home with the Fernie Ghostriders this weekend.

The Hawks are coming off three big wins on the road last week against Kamloops, Revelstoke, and Chase, and need to keep racking up Ws if they are to catch the league-leading Nelson Leafs.

“We’re happy with the way the team is playing, but not only that we are really happy with the way the spirit of the team has come together,” said Hawks coach Terry Jones. “We’re getting lots of contribution from each guy and we’re competing like we should be competing.”

The Hawks have been plagued by injury as much as the Flu bug, yet were able to overcome the perils of the road on the weekend.

Fernie tops the Eddie Mountain Division and is led by 20-year-old forward Brandon Burge who is third in the league in scoring with 39 points. The Hawks have yet to play the Ghostriders in the 2012-13 season, but Fernie has a 16-6-1-2 record while the Hawks sport a 16-10-1-1, with only a point separating the two teams.

“It’s going to be exciting to parlay last weekend into this weekend, against a good rival, a good competitor,” added Jones. “Now that we’re playing good, solid hockey, we’re really looking forward to playing them this weekend.”

The puck drops tonight at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7:30 p.m.
