James Price cut the Rebs lead to 4-2 in the third period but Castlegar would quash any come back attempts with an empty netter from Lubin late in the game.

In net for the Rebs was Jordan Gluck, who stopped 27 of 30 shots.

The Rebels have busy weekend as come down to the final stretch before play-offs. On Friday (Feb. 8) the boys host Beaver Valley, the next day the teams play in Fruitvale. On Sunday (Feb. 10) Castlegar hosts the much improved Grand Forks Border Bruins in an afternoon affair.

The season concludes on the Feb. 15/16 weekend with a home and home with Nelson.
