It was all about the goal last weekend for the Rebels.

The Castlegar Rebels had another victorious weekend.

The Castlegar Rebels had another victorious weekend.

On Friday, Oct. 23 they swept away the Spokane Braves 7-1 and on Sunday they shut-out the Princeton Posse 4-0.

Both games were on home ice for the Rebels.

Friday’s dust-up with Spokane was one-sided with the Rebels out scoring the Braves and out shooting them 48-24.

The top scorers for the Rebels were Tyler Barrett, who scored twice, and Daniel Petten, who assisted on three other goals.

Sunday’s game was also lop-sided with the Rebels dominating the play.

The Rebels out shot them 40-33. They scored two goals in the first period, two more in the second, and the third period was scoreless.

Coach Jesse Dorrans ran with Logan Sawka in net for Friday’s game and Joseph Mcleod for the Sunday matinee.

The 4-0 score gave Mcleod another shut-out. The Castlegar team played well defensively keeping the Posse scoring to a minimum.

The Sunday match started with an early goal for the Rebels three minutes into the period. Morgan Scriber scored the goal assisted by Zach Smith. With 5:40 left in the period Chris Breese made short order of a pass from Ed Lindsey and put the puck in the corner of the net.

The second period scoring was started by Mike Bhatoa assisted by Tayden Woods at 15:56. The same line scored again at the halfway mark in the second period but this time Tayden Woods scored assisted by Mike Bhatoa and Daniel Petten.

Daniel Petten, a Rebels award winner from the 2014 season played strongly throughout the game, setting up play after play. Mike Bhatoa, the lanky forward from Prince George, also played like a winner. It was the second game for Bhatoa after taking last weekend off nursing a knee injury.

Bhatoa spoke confidently about his team’s abilities after the game.

“I think we have a lot of talent and I think we can do a lot of good things this year.”

 

The game on Sunday had a cheque presentation of $24,000 donated to Kidsport  by Subway and the KIJHL. Mike Johnstone accepted the donation on behalf of Kidsport.
