The Kimberley Dynamiters will look to eliminate the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in Game 5 of the KIJHL’s Kootenay Conference final Tuesday night in Fruitvale.
After building a 3-0 series lead, the Nitros were unable to finish off the Nitehawks in the first elimination game of the best-of-seven series as Beaver Valley claimed a 4-3 victory in double overtime Sunday at the Kimberley Civic Centre.
“We’re alive. We’re absolutely alive,” said Nitehawks head coach and general manager Terry Jones Sunday night.
“We’ve really battled. I really gave my guys a lot of credit [Sunday] for their effort. It paid off and we live another day.”
Mitch Foyle gave the visitors new life as he scored to end Game 4 in double overtime.
For the Dynamiters, the mantra remains the same.
“Don’t get too high, don’t get too low,” said Dynamiters head coach Jerry Bancks on Sunday. “That’s it.”
Puck drop for Game 5 is slated for 8 p.m. (MT) at the Beaver Valley Arena.
If necessary, Game 6 goes Wednesday at the Kimberley Civic Centre.
