Tempers flared as the game seemed to be slipping away from Fernie

Castlegar’s Rebels take two straight games

As playoffs approach, Rebels look strong

In two back-to-back battles, the hometown Rebels overcame the Grand Forks Border Bruins and the Fernie Ghostriders, adding two more wins to their record of 28-16.

Game number one took the Rebels over to Grand Forks where they emerged victorious, 3-2 over the Bruins.

With 12:17 to go in the first period, a power play goal was scored by Bruins player Stephen Shikaze. Castlegar’s own Tyler Barrett scored six minutes later to tie the game up before the period would end.

The second period played out much the same, only with Castlegar’s Lindan Calliou banging one in off a man advantage only to have the opposition come back with a goal of their own several minutes later.

The five minute mark had just been passed in the final period when Ryan Rosich edged the Rebels ahead and sealed the deal, 3-2 in regulation.

The following night, the Rebels put on a show for their fans out for the last event in this years Hockeyville bid. With a final score of 7-2, the Rebels rocked Fernie’s Ghostriders.

Four goals went up on the board in the first; all from Castlegar players. Tyler Barrett, Jeremy McNeil, Cal Owens and Brett Leidl all shared the puck and netted a goal each.

The second period of play only saw one goal but it was yet again Castlegar behind it. This time the score came from D-man Nick Headrick.

The third period began 5-0 for the Rebels and the Ghostriders wouldn’t find a goal until Rebels player Dawson Haines earned one of his own. With under ten minutes left in the game, Fernie could only manage two goals before Castlegar’s Aaron Petten scored the teams  seventh goal and finished the game strong.

The Rebels play again on February 7. They will be hosting the division leaders, the B.V. Nitehawks.
