Two third period goals from Nolan Kinney helped Castlegar shake out of their doldrums and cruise to a 5-1 win over Grand Forks on Tuesday at the Castlegar Community Complex.

In the first two periods, the Rebels took 25 shots and dominated play but could only get two goals past Grand Forks goalie Cole Buckley.

Anthony Delong opened the scoring with the only goal of the first period, a power play marker at 10:51 assisted by Stuart Walton and Tyler Robinson.

Jacob Bergeron evened the score at 15:41 of the second, with a power play goal of his own assisted by Carson McCulloch and Bryan Read.

A 1-1 tie against the 0-20 Border Bruins heading into the third period was not what the small but faithful crowd at the Community Complex was expecting.

Fortunately, Arthur Andrews was able to give the hometown Rebels a 2-1 lead with just over two minutes left in the second, assisted by Kody Disher and Bryce Eviston.

Castlegar was finally able to generate some offence in the third with three unanswered goals to put the game away.

Scoring in the third were Kinney with his two and Walton with a single. Walton and Robinson both had a pair of assists in the final period to end with three assists each.
