The Castlegar Rebels defeated the Grand Forks Border Bruins 3-1 on Friday night, then dropped a 4-1 decision to the 100 Mile House Wranglers.

Friday night’s hockey game was  tight and defensive.

Castlegar’s Cal Owens was the first player to find the back of the net, just under halfway through the second. Determined not to let the game slip away this early, the Bruins’ Stephen Shikaze tied it up at the end of the period.

The third opened with a bang as Ryan Rosich slammed the puck past the netminder within 15 seconds of puck drop. Strong defense held the Bruins at bay for the remainder of the period and for good measure Dylan Ofner scored for the Rebels, finishing the game 3-1.

Rebels’ Yannis Soukas was the first star for the game with his contribution of three assists.

The next night the Rebels clashed with the 100 Mile House Wranglers. The Wranglers proved to be too much for the Rebels though, winning 4-1.

Castlegar’s only goal came in the final period when Brett Leidl scored to avoid the shutout.

The Rebels are in third place within their division behind  the second place Nelson Leafs and the first place Beaver Valley Nitehawks.


Castlegar will be on the road for four games, returning home January 17 to face off against the Spokane Braves.
