The Beaver Valley Nitehawks made it look easy, winning six straight games including a 5-1 decision over host Abbotsford Pilots in the final to capture the 2014 Keystone Cup Western Canadian Junior B Hockey Championships Sunday in the Fraser Valley.

The win comes a week after the Hawks won the 2014 Cyclone Taylor Cup in Nelson.

Five different players scored for the Hawks which led 2-0 after 40 minutes.

Fraser Stang, Riley Brandt, Taylor Stafford, Keanan Patershuk and Sam Swanson scored for the winners.

Jarrett Martin replied for the Pilots.

Brett Clark stopped 32 of 33 shots to register his fourth win of the tourney in goal.

Beaver Valley dominated the tournament from the outset, outscoring the opposition 27-4 during the round robin.

The Hawks were led in the tournament by Dallas Calvin, who topped all scorers with six goals and eight assists for 14 points in six games.

Teammate Taylor Stafford finished the Keystone Cup with five goals and seven assists for 11 points.

Beaver Valley, 63-15-1-3, finished the remarkable season with a KIJHL title, a Cyclone Taylor crown and a Keystone Cup championship.

The only blemish on the season was the Hawks did not win the Murdoch Division regular season title, losing out to the Nelson Leafs by a point on the final day of the regular season.
