Rebels 5 Broncos 1
The Red Deer Rebels are officially on a winning streak.
Six games into the WHL season, the young Rebels added their second straight win of the campaign Friday with a dominant 5-1 victory over the Swift Current Broncos.
Ethan Anders was first star with another big performance, turning aside 27 Broncos shots in the game, including 14 in the final frame.
Five different Rebels found the scoresheet, CHL Import defenceman Christopher Sedoff picked up his first multi-point game and Red Deer product Keaton Sorensen scored his first career WHL goal in the victory.

It started early in the first period, just after a five-on-three power play expired– Josh Tarzwell banged in a rebound to put the Rebels ahead 1-0. The Red Deer product now has four goals on the season.
After the Broncos tied the game midway through the second, Cam Hausinger wired a wrist shot past Issac Poulter for his first of the year.
The Rebels tallied three unanswered goals in the third, starting with Chris Douglas burying at 8:44 of the frame. On the goal, newly acquired Cohner Saleski picked up his first career WHL assist. The 17-year-old was picked up in a trade with the Prince Albert Raiders earlier this week.
Brett Davis cashed in an empty-net goal with 2:05 to play, before Sorensen, 17, notched his first career WHL tally with 1:16 to play.
The Rebels are back on the road Saturday in Medicine Hat to take on the Tigers.
