Forward for Langley-based team has a very good game

Giants forward Tristen Nielsen is on a roll.

Friday night (Oct. 11) in Moose Jaw, Nielsen paced the Vancouver Giants (5-5) offense with two goals and an assist in a 4-1 victory over the Moose Jaw Warriors (5-2).

Justin Sourdif and Lukas Svejkovsky also scored while goaltender David Tendeck made 25 saves in the Giants net.

Owen Hardy had the lone goal in response for Moose Jaw.

Play by play:

First goal turned out to be the only goal for the Warriors, at 3:29 into the first period from Owen Hardy.

Hardy followed up a Brayden Tracey rebound to secure his third goal of the season. The goal was originally waived off, but after a review the officials ruled it a good goal.

With 48 seconds left in the first, Tristen Nielsen got the Giants back even with a power play goal.

Nielsen out-maneuvered two Moose Jaw defencemen off the rush before ripping home a shot past Bailey Brkin’s glove. Bowen Byram and Dylan Plouffe earned assists.

In the second period, Nielsen struck again at 9:19. This time he knocked in his own rebound in close. Justin Sourdif and Milos Roman both assisted.

Justin Sourdif increased the lead to 3-1 at 13:24. Sourdif’s sixth was assisted by Tristen Nielsen, giving him his third point of the night.

In the third period, Lukas Svejkovsky notched the game’s final goal at 7:11 of a tic-tac-toe play with Sergei Alkhimov and Dylan Plouffe.

Final Score: Vancouver 4 – Moose Jaw 1

Giants Tristen Nielsen and Justin Sourdif were named first and second stars of the game. Warriors Owen Hardy was third.
