The Castlegar Rebels trailed the Spokane Braves 2-0 midway through the second period during Sunday's game in the Lilac City, but came back to win 5-3 led by two goals from first star Tanner Johnson.

Also scoring for the Rebs were Hunter Jenerou, Stuart Walton, and Kody Disher.

Jordan Gluck picked up the win and the third star of the game with a 40 save performance for Castlegar.

The game is the first of seven straight road games for the Rebels, which includes a North Okanagan trip next weekend where they play Chase, Kamloops, and North Okanagan.

Three weekend wins pull the Rebels even with Nelson for first place in the Neil Murdoch division with 31 points each in 21 games.
