The Castlegar Rebels played two road games this past week and managed to add two more strikes to the win column.

Their first outing ended in an 8-3 blowout against the struggling Grand Forks Border Bruins.

Not five minutes had passed before Castlegar had a goal on the board. Ed Lindsey was responsible.

Bruins player Matt Lucero tied the game up at the 10 minute mark but a quick response from Cal Owens marked the beginning of the end for Grand Forks. Mike Bhatoa and Jeremy McNeil stepped up and scored two a piece totaling four unanswered goals before the second period was half over.

Grand Forks scored two goals, interrupted by Ed Lindsey netting one of his own ending the second period 7-3.

The lone third period goal was scored by Cal Owens. Owens was named first star with two goals and two assists.

The Spokane Braves were next to host the Rebels on Sunday. Castlegar won their game across the border 5-4.

A quick goal from the Braves was answered when Yannis Soukas scored off a man advantage. However the Braves edged ahead before the first period came to a close.

Period two opened with Spokane pushing ahead 3-1 but after that the Rebels had them on lock.

Goal after goal came from the Rebels; McNeil, Lindsey and Darren Medeiros propelled their team into a 4-3 lead.

Rebels’ Ryan Rosich added one more point to the board and secured the win despite a last minute goal from Stolz, who earned himself a nice hat trick.

The Rebels will go on to play Grand Forks again on Friday before coming home to face off against the Fernie Ghostriders.
