The Castlegar Rebels built on their hot streak, adding two more wins over the weekend.
Friday, the Rebels faced off against the Columbia Valley Rockies.
Rebels’ forward John Moeller, assisted by Reid Wilson, scored the first goal of the game and the only point in the first period.
The Rockies rallied in the second half of the second period when Tyler Bordt tied the game and soon after Brandt Black put the team in the lead.
But their success was short-lived as the Rebels came back in the third. Both Dallas Goodwin and Edward Lindsey scored in the first half of the period and the game ended 3-2 for the Rebels.
The Rebels are now 3-0 against the Rockies for the season.
Then on Saturday, the Rebels battled against the Kimberley Dynamiters.
Things started off well for the Rebels. Shawn Campbell scored within the first two minutes of the first, assisted by Aiden Cornell and Everett Hicks. And then the Dynamiters around mid-period — but instead of the Rebels capitalizing on the power play, the Dynamiters’ Nicholas Ketola scored a short-handed goal.
Rebels’ captain Vince Bitonti scored in the final minute of the first period, putting his team back in the lead and then Moeller — 10th for points in the KIJHL — scored within the first two minutes of the second period.
Soon afterward Lindsey — fourth for points in the KIJHL — put the Rebels three goals ahead, but the Dynamiters weren’t about to give up.
Brett Roberts started closing the gap in the second half of the second and Ketola scored yet another short-handed goal in the first five minutes of the third, then claimed a hat trick and tied things up, sending the game into two overtime periods.
Finally, Lindsey scored his second goal of the night, and the game ended 5-4 for the Rebels.
The Rebels are 2-1 against the Dynamiters so far this season.
In the standings, the Rebels are third in the Neil Murdoch Division and are 11-6-0-1 for the season.
Their next game is in Spokane on Friday against the Braves and then they play at home on Sunday against the Nelson Leafs at 2 p.m.
