Robinson leads Castlegar Rebels to double overtime win

Veteran forward Tyler Robinson led Castlegar to a 3-2 double overtime road win over Osoyoos.

Road wins are tough to come by at the best of times. A double overtime win on the road? Nearly impossible you say? Not for the Castlegar Rebels, who used a goal by Tyler Robinson at 9:10 of the second overtime period to beat the Osoyoos Coyotes. Anthony Delong picked up the assist.

Scott Morisseau had a strong game for the Rebs as well, scoring a goal and assisting on a goal by Arthur Andrews. Morisseau was rewarded for his efforts with the game’s second all-star.

Steve Sasyniuk scored both goals for the Coyotes and was named first star.

Castlegar faces Summerland on Saturday in the second game of their South Okanagan swing.
