Rebels fall to Nitros in Kimberley
The Castlegar Rebels lost a low scoring battle on Saturday night in Kimberley, 3-1.
The Dynamiters went up 2-0 after two periods with goals from Tanner Gray and Tyson Klingspohn. The Rebs finally got on the board with Dylan Bowerman scoring with 5:56 left in the third period. Unfortunately, Kimberley would hold off the Rebel attack and score an empty netter to seal the victory.
Castlegar out-shot their ungracious hosts 37-33. Jordan Gluck was in net for the Rebels and got the loss.
With a Nelson win over Spokane Saturday night, the Leafs regain the top spot in the Neil Murdoch division, and the entire KIJHL.
The Rebels are back in town Friday for a game against the Eddie Mountain division leading Fernie Ghostriders. The 'Riders are led by sniper extraordinaire Brenden Burge, who has 20 goals 39 points in 23 games and is second in KIJHL scoring.
