The Castlegar Rebels won a close, exciting game over the Spokane Braves in a Sunday matinee at the Castlegar Complex.

The final score was 7-5 for the Rebels. A lot of ice time was spent with the game tied or one team up by one. It was not until the last minutes of play in the third period that the Rebels established a two goal lead.

The star of the game for Castlegar was new kid Connor Beauchemin who still did not have his name on his jersey. But in only his second game with the Rebels, he managed to score four goals.

The future looks bright for the Rebels who after 28 games are in third position in the Kootenay Conference: Neil Murdoch Division.

The Rebels don’t play at the complex again until December 13 at 7:30 p.m. when they’ll host the Fernie Ghostriders.

This Friday and Saturday they’re on the road, in Summerland and Princeton, respectively.
