Bantam AAA Rebels fall in OT

Flames 4 Rebels 3 (Red Deer leads best-of-five series 2-1)

The Red Deer Bantam AAA Rebels will need another game to try and close out the Calgary Flames.

After winning the first two games of the Alberta Major Bantam AAA Hockey League best-of-five regional final series in overtime, it was the Flames who grabbed an overtime decision Monday.

Calgary scored early in overtime to clinch the 4-3 victory in Red Deer to force Game 4.

Coy Pighin scored the first period tally for Red Deer before Rhett Miller buried a pair in the second period. Owen Callow, Josh Perreault, Ephram McNutt, Colby Joyce, Talon Brigley and Caleb Hadland all had assists in the loss.

Game 4 is Wednesday in Calgary and if necessary, Game 5 will be Thursday in Red Deer at Servus Arena.
