The Castlegar Rebels tied the Beaver Valley Nighthawks 3-3 at the Castlegar Community Complex in KIJHL pre-season action Saturday night.

Beaver Valley struck first with Ryan Edwards scoring in the first period. The Rebs tied it up early in the second stanza with a goal from Arthur Andrews assisted by Peter Mingus.

The ‘Hawks then went up 3-1 with consecutive second period goals from Bryan Hinchcliffe at 11:30 and Mason Spear at 5:17.

Kody Disher brought Castlegar within one of Beaver Valley with a marker at 17:12 of the third period  assisted by Evan Ritchie and Brendan Heinrich.

Tyler Robinson picked up the tying goal for the Rebs at 13:46 assisted by Tyler Jones.

“To be honest, I wasn’t really happy with our first couple of periods,” said coach Steve Junker. “But that’s kind of the way it is with exhibition, that’s the reason for it – to kind of work the kinks out and try to learn a new system with a new group of players and figure out how we like to play as a team.”

Junker was pleased, however, with the way the team fought back in the third period to tie the game up.

“I definitely thought our third period was better. Not just based on the fact that we scored some goals or that we competed,” said Junker. “Your compete level has to be there at all times.That’s one thing I’ll demand from start to finish – that our compete level is at the highest.”

The Rebels are now 2-1 in pre-season after winning their first two games handily against Nelson. The team finished off their pre-season schedule tonight (Sept. 11) with a road game in Beaver Valley.
