Rebels down Chiefs in OT

Snap four-game losing streak

Rebels 4 Chiefs 3 (OT)

SPOKANE, Wash. — It wasn’t exactly how the Red Deer Rebels drew it up, but they’ll gladly take the 4-3 overtime victory over the Spokane Chiefs in Western Hockey League play Friday.

Michael Spacek scored a power play goal at 4:31 of overtime to snap a four-game losing streak.

The Rebels led 2-0 after the first period on goals by Jordan Roy and Ethan Sakowich, which were the first of the season for both players.

Hudson Elynuik narrowed the gap in the middle stanza and Keanu Yamamoto tied the game just 57 seconds into the third period.

Austin Pratt gave the Rebels a 3-2 lead with his sixth goal of the season at 7:59, but Kailer Yamamoto tied it against a tiring Red Deer squad at 16:32. The Rebels were out shot 15-7 in the third period and 32-30 overall.

Riley Lamb went the distance in goal for Red Deer while Jayden Sittler was in net for the Chiefs.

Red Deer was one for-three on the power play and killed off five shorthanded situations.

The Rebels return home before once again hitting the road for four games in five days — Friday in Brandon, Saturday in Moose Jaw, Sunday in Regina and Nov. 15 in Swift Current. They’re back home Nov. 18 against Medicine Hat.
