The Castlegar Rebels lost 3-1 to the visiting Sicamous Eagles Sunday afternoon at the Castlegar Complex.

Brayden Taekema scored the only goal of the first two periods for Sicamous. Kelyn Opei picked up the game winner at 15:51 of the third period. Rebel defenceman Tanner Johnson scored the only Castlegar marker of the game at 9:32 of the third on the power play to give the Rebs some life.

But they would be unable to tie the game up. Taekema scored his second of the game with three minutes left to seal the victory for Sicamous.

The Rebels outshot the Eagles 51-27, but were only able to get one past netminder Jack Surgenor.

Castlegar is back in Spokane on Friday for an inter-divisional game against the Braves. The mighty Kamloops Storm is in town next Sunday for a 2 p.m. match-up against the Rebs.
