The Castlegar Rebels eight game winning streak is kaput after a 3-2 loss in Spokane to the Braves on Sunday afternoon.

After a scoreless first period, the Braves scored three unanswered in the second (Coleman MacDonald, Dylan Tappe and John Ryskamp) to go up 3-0 in the afternoon affair.

Rebel defenceman Hunter Jenerou finally broke the ice for the Rebs at 3:56 of the second stanza, assisted by Stuart Walton and AP call-up Travis Wellman.

Matt Reed's goal at 6:09 of the third cut the Spokane lead to 3-2 but the Rebs were unable to tie the game up.

Jordan Gluck was between the pipes for Castlegar and stopped 43 of 46 Spokane shots.
