Rebels struggle in loss to Medicine Hat

MEDICINE HAT– The Red Deer Rebels fell behind early and never recovered on Saturday night in Medicine Hat.

Red Deer let up a goal to Gary Haden at 2:04 of the first and the Tigers finished with six on the night to bury the Rebels 6-1.

Hayden Ostir struck for Medicine Hat 2:03 into the second before Ryan Jevne and Haden notched goals in the middle frame to pull away.

Hunter Donohoe scored the only Rebels goal late in the second, but the Tigers added two goals just five seconds apart late in the third to put an exclamation point on the win.

Rebels netminder Riley Lamb was pulled after allowing four goals on 30 shots through 33 minutes of action. Ethan Anders came in and stopped 22 of 24 shots in relief.

Michael Bullion needed to make just 17 saves in the Tigers net, only three of which came in the final 20 minutes of the contest.

Red Deer now sits seven points up on the Kootenay Ice for third in the Central Division, but have two games in hand on the Ice.
