Dale Howell scored in double overtime to power the Nelson Leafs to a 3-2 victory in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Friday night at the NDCC Arena.

Nelson now remains tied for first in the Murdoch Division with the Grand Forks Border Bruins.

The Bruins doubled Castlegar Rebels 6-3 in the Sunflower City.

Nelson struggled to open the contest against the defending Murdoch Division champs.

Leafs, Hawks ready for Round Three

Nelson Leafs have just one game this weekend, against rival Beaver Valley Friday at NDCC Arena.

Currently, three teams — Grand Forks Border Bruins, Beaver Valley Nitehawks and Nelson Leafs — are tied for top spot with the Bruins getting the edge having played one less game.

Right on the heels of the three front-runners is Castlegar Rebels, who have won three straight games after struggling out of the gates after losing twice during an East Kootenay road trip.
