Matt Davies scored with six minutes left in the game to snap a 1-1 tie and power the Kimberley Dynamiters to a 2-1 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Nelson Leafs Friday night in the Bavarian City.

The game was the first of a weekend series against Eddie Mountain opposition for the Green and White.

Nelson travels to Creston Saturday to face the Thunder Cats.

Nelson opened the scoring five minutes into the contest when Andy Fitzpatrick scored his seventh goal of the season.

Korbyn Chabot tied the game a 1-1 with a marker early in the second before Davies notched the winner.

The Leafs, despite out shooting the defending Kootenay Conference Champs 34-28 in the game and 15-6 during the opening period, struggled once again to score goals. Over the last three games Nelson has scored just six times.

Nelson, 8-6-0-0-1, falls to five points behind Murdoch leading Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

Beaver Valley won its seventh straight game, scoring three times in the second period to edge Creston 3-2 in the East Kootenay City. Devin Nemes netted the winner, snapping a 2-2 tie.

Beaver Valley visits the Leafs as Nelson concludes a three-game road trip Tuesday in Grand Forks.

Game time Friday is 7 p.m.
