Kolten Nelson scored three times on the power play and Jordan Davie collected four points sparking the Nelson Leafs to a 7-2 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Spokane Braves Sunday afternoon at the NDCC Arena.

The victory salvaged a weekend where Nelson dropped two games to the Castlegar Rebels.

Nelson had lost eight of nine games entering Sunday’s contest.

Ellliot Piourde opened the scoring for the Braves midway through the opening frame.

However, even playing shorthanded with seven regular out of the lineup, and Kootenay Ice net minder Curt Doyle between the pipes, the Leafs took over the game scoring three times in the final eight minute of the period.

Jordan Davie, Levi Hulston on the power play and Cleary Ambrose with his first of the season, game Nelson the lead heading into the period break.

Samuel Weber increased the margin to 4-1 early in the second before Nelson went to work on the power play with his first of the game.

Kurtis Redding cut the margin to 5-2 before Nelson scored his second of the game before the period concluded and finished off the hat-trick in the third.

Nelson was missing forwards Blair Andrews, Rayce Miller, goalie Josh Willams and defencemen Ainge McGeady-Bruce and Dash Thompson.

The Leafs return to action Wednesday when Creston Valley Thunder Cats pay a visit to the NDCC Arena.
