Rebels second in division

The Castlegar Rebels played two away games during the weekend, and remain tied for second in the Neil Murdoch Division.

The Castlegar Rebels remain tied for second in the Neil Murdoch Division of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League after splitting two away games this past weekend.

The Rebels lost to the Columbia Valley Rockies 5-3 in Invermere on Friday, but bounced back with a 4-0 win over Golden the following day.

In Friday’s game, the Rockies were ahead from the beginning, scoring two goals in the first period, but Dallas Goodwin managed to get the Rebels on the board halfway through the second period.

The Rebels briefly tied things up after Mike Bhatoa scored another goal in the second, but then the Rockies came back to score another two goals before the end of the period, and a fifth goal at the beginning of the third.

Chris Breese managed one more goal for the Rebels at the end of the third, but the team was unable to tie it up again.

Things went better for the Rebels in Golden on Saturday.

The Rebels outshot the Rockets 40-23.

Garret Patterson, Chris Breese, Nick Headrick, and Tayden Woods all scored goals.

The Rebels played Spokane Wednesday night, but results were not available  at press time.

The Rebels also host Beaver Valley next Sunday, followed by Grand Forks the following Tuesday. Game times are 1 p.m. against Beaver Valley and 7 p.m. against Grand Forks.
