Rebels lose overtime thriller to Hurricanes

Rebels lose overtime thriller to Hurricanes

Newcomer Brett Davis scores twice and adds assist

Brett Davis just needed a day to settle in with the Red Deer Rebels.

After making his debut Saturday, the newly acquired Davis scored twice and added an assist Sunday in the Rebels fifth game in the last six days.

Still, the Rebels came up just short with a crazy 5-4 overtime loss to the Hurricanes Sunday in Lethbridge.

In a wild contest at the Enmax Centre, Red Deer managed to force overtime after Davis scored with the Rebels net empty and 18 seconds left in regulation.

Hurricanes defenceman Nolan Jones scored 1:50 into extra time to win the game.

The Rebels were slow out of the gate in the first, allowing a pair of goals from Taylor Ross, including a tally with seven seconds left in the frame.

Red Deer pushed back midway through the second when Chris Douglas found the mark for his ninth goal of the season. With a goal and an assist in the game, the Richmond, B.C. native has five points in his last three games.

Zak Smith notched his seventh goal of the season five minutes into the third to tie the game at two. The second-year forward has four goals in his last five games.

Davis gave the Rebels a brief lead in the third at 11:35 with a shorthanded tally.

With under three minutes to play, Dylan Cozens struck for the home side to knot the game at three.

Ross buried his hat trick goal with 77 seconds left in the game and it looked like the Hurricanes would come away with two points in regulation.

Davis notched his ninth of the year to send the game to overtime.

Rebels goalie Ethan Anders stopped 36 shots in loss and defenceman Alex Alexeyev had two assists on the night.
