It was a hard hitting game between the Rebels and the Summerland Steam Friday November 15 at the Castlegar Complex.
The end result was a 2-2 tie, but not before Paulsen Lautard from the Steam was given a game misconduct for fighting at the end of period 1, and Bret Leidl from the Rebels given a game misconduct for boarding at 9:02 into the second period, and as well as Dylan Bowerman from the Rebels given a game misconduct for fighting giving the Steam a power play from the start of the third period.
The first goal showed up with just 38 seconds left in the first period, scored by Reid Brown (Kienan Scott, Braden Saretsky) for the Steam. At 12:08 of the second period the Steam scored again with a shot from Kienan Scott (Paulsen Lautard) and Summerland was ahead by a pair. The Rebels rallied and with 5:08 left in the second period Mike Bhatoa (Dylan Bowerman, Darren Medeiros) wrapped a wrist shot past Steam goalie Bret Huber, who had up till then hampered the Rebels’ scoring effort.
The Rebels scored again at 15:46 of of the third period with a quick slap shot through a circle of Steam defenders from near the blue line by Hunter Jenerou (Aaron Brewer), and that was it for the scoring despite a full helping of overtime. Not even a penalty shot attempt by Rebel Diego Bartlett that could slip by Huber who, with the Rebels goalie Patrick Zubick, kept scoring to a minimum.
