The Castlegar Rebels continued their dominance over their neighbours to the west. The Rebs took an 5-1 lead over the Border Bears and cruised to a 6-4 win on the road on Thursday night. Darren Medeiros led the way for the Rebs with four goals and four assists and was named the game's first star.

The Rebs took a 2-0 lead after the first period on goals from Aaron Petten, assisted by Medeiros, and Brayden Horcoff, assisted by Peter Mingus and Brenden Heinrich.

Coleton Dawson cut the lead the 2-1 before Medieros scored two straight to put the Castlegar squad up 4-1 midway through the second period. Kody Disher put Rebs up 5-1 at the 5:32 mark of the second, assisted by Medeiros and Tanner Johnson.

However, the home team Bruins wouldn't give up. Former Rebel forward Connor Bowen scored with 54 seconds left in the second for GF. Brenden Enns would cut the Castlegar lead to two with a power play marker at 13:16 of the third period.

Rebel captain Erik Alden gave the visiting team some breathing room with a goal at 12:37 to put the Rebs up 6-3 assisted by Jamie Vlanich and Stu Walton.

Connor Gross finished off the scoring with a power play goal for Grand Forks at 9:38.

Call up Patrick Zubick got the start in goal for the Rebels and picked up the win, stopping 29 of 33 GF shots.
