Rebels perfect on the weekend

The Castlegar Rebels came back undefeated from a short, two-game road trip on the weekend.

The Castlegar Rebels came back undefeated from a short, two-game road trip on the weekend.

On Friday, the local squad travelled to Sicamous to battle the Eagles and came out on the right side of a 4-3 decision.

Despite being outshot 43 to 30 and entering the third period down 3-1 the Rebels battled hard to come back and win one on the road.

Sicamous opened the scoring, popping in two goals in the first period. However, early in the second frame, the Rebels’ Dylan Bowerman scored on the powerplay to cut the lead to 2-1.

It looked bad for the Castlegar squad early in the third as Sicamous restored the two goal lead when Carter Hansen put the puck past netminder Austin Wells.

But it was all Castlegar after that. A third period goal by Darren Medeiros and two by  Jeremy McNeil gave the locals a much needed come from behind victory.

The next night, the Rebels carried that momentum into Chase to take on the Heat.

Again the two squads were evenly matched, but Castlegar had just a little more firepower, winning the game 5-4 in double overtime.

Bryan Lubin opened the scoring for Castlegar in the first, a goal that foreshadowed an exciting finish.

Lindan Calliou scored another for the Rebels to give the visitors a 2-0 lead after one.

In the second, Chase turned on the heat. Three straight goals gave to home squad a 3-2 advantage after two.

Castlegar  refused to say die as Darren Medeiros scored to tie the game at three in the third.

The Heat regained the lead before Mike Bhatoa scored to send the contest into overtime.

It took two overtime sessions before Lubin would end it on a goal, assisted by Rebels goaltender Patrick Zubick.

Zubick stopped 46 of the 50 shots he faced in the contest.

Castlegar’s next game is a home contest on Friday, November 14 when the Kamloops Storm come to play. The puck drops at 7 p.m..

The next night, the Rebels play host to the Nelson Leafs. That game also begins at 7 p.m..
