October 26 was the last time Golden and Castlegar played. The Rebels defeated the Rockets 6-5 in overtime.

Rebels took to the road this weekend, earning a split

This weekend the Castlegar Rebels took on the Golden Rockets and Columbia Valley Rockies.

This weekend the Castlegar Rebels took to the road and came away with a split record.

Their first game took place Friday, in Golden against the Rockets.

Within two minutes of the game’s opening, Rebels’ Dylan Ofner scored the first goal for Castlegar. This would end up being their only goal.

In what would have otherwise been a tight game, the Rebels proceeded to let in three goals in the first period out of only five shots.

For the second and third periods the Golden Rockets were kept under tighter control, only scoring two more goals. Unfortunately the Rebels could not get any more pucks past Golden’s goaltender and the final tally was 5-1 for the Rockets.

The following game was held in Invermere against the Columbia Valley Rockies. The Rebels gave a much better performance this time around.

The first period opened up with three goals from the Rebels’ players, Ryan Rosich, Cal Owens and Dylan Bowerman.

Within the opening minutes of the second period the Rockies came back with a point of their own, changing the score to 3-1. The remainder of the period was scoreless until, with two minutes left Castlegar’s Lindan Calliou buried the puck on a power play advantage.

The third period had no mercy for Columbia Valley as the Rebels hammered home four more goals and sealed the deal 8-1.

The goals were scored by Mike Bhatoa, Ryan Rosich, Ed Lindsey and Dawson Haines.
