Rebels one win away from advancing

Castlegar defeated Spokane on home ice last night. The final score was 5-2.

The Castlegar Rebels earned themselves a home ice victory last night over the Spokane Braves in game five of the first round of playoffs. The Rebels seriously outplayed the Braves at last night’s game, getting off many more shots — 48-26 — and winning 5-2.

Scoring opened up halfway through the first with Brett Leidl putting  Castlegar up by one at 10:41. Spokane soon followed up with their own goal with three minutes to go.

The second period went much the same, with the Rebels finding the back of the net at the eleven minute mark and the Braves following suit, leading into the final period 2-2.

Castlegar had the Braves number by this point and scored three unanswered goals. First was Tyler Barrett, followed by a power play score from Aaron Petten. An empty net goal by Dylan Ofner sealed the deal.

The Rebels head to Spokane tonight to face off again. Puck drops at 7 p.m..
