No one can accuse the Castlegar Rebels of tanking the last few games of the season, after clinching the division title. The Rebs beat Nelson for the second straight night; this time 5-0 at the Nelson Community Centre.

Veteran forward Diego Bartlett opened up the scoring with less than 30 seconds left in the first period. Assisting were Jamie Vlanich and Brenden Heinrich.

Bartlett picked up his second of the game with a power play marker at 10:21 of the second, assisted by Stu Walton and Erik Alden. The Rebels grabbed a 3-0 lead with another play goal, this one by Bryan Lubin, assisted by Travis Wellman and Alden.

Walton put Castlegar up 4-0 with an unassisted goal at 18:55 of the third. Brayden Horcoff scored the final goal of the game shortly after, assisted by Darren Medieros and Aaron Petten.

 

Getting the shutout in net for Castlegar was Jordan Gluck who stopped all 22 shots by Nelson.

The Rebels start their KIJHL play-off run this Friday at the Castlegar Community Complex with a 7:30 p.m. game against Spokane.
