The Castlegar Rebels lost a nailbiter on Friday September 19 to the Spokane Braves. The score was 4-3 in their

first home game in regular season play. As Rebels assistant captain Aaron Petten would tell the Castlegar News in a post game interview, “We came out sleeping and Spokane capitalized on it.” The Braves scored less than a minute into the game and then another two goals to create a three goal led.

Petten scored with seven seconds left in the first period before the Rebels took the intermission to reorganize and come out for the second and third periods as a much tighter disciplined hockey team. Out-shooting the Braves by 25 per cent in the second and third they were able to bridge the scoring gap to one.

Whether by luck or talent, however, the Braves goalie Patrick Kasper was able to keep the puck out of his net to help Spokane on its way to the win.

The Castlegar Rebels play the Kimberley Dynamiters on Sunday September 21 at the Castlegar Complex. The puck drops at 2:00 p.m.
