With the man advantage the hosts made it 3-zip thanks to Dallas Calvin (McKinnon and Fuller).

Connor Beauchemin, toward the end of the frame, got his Castlegar team on the board, set up by Carson Wornig and Aaron Brewer.

Braden Fuller, at 6:18 from Edwards and McKinnon restored BV’s four-goal bulge before Darren Medeiros replied for the Rebels, Hunter Jenerou and Jeremy McNeil assisting.

Kody Disher, on a powerplay closed the gap before the hosts put a fine point on the proceedings with a Braden Fuller effort enabled by Calvin and Stafford.
