Rebels win streak snapped by Pats

Pats 3 Rebels 2

Max Paddock stymied the Red Deer Rebels for the second time in the past month.

The Regina Pats netminder turned aside 26 shots, including all 13 in the third period on the way to a 3-2 victory over the Rebels at the Brandt Centre.

Paddock stopped 45 shots in a win against the Rebels in late November and was their kryptonite again Saturday.

Josh Tarzwell opened the scoring 4:12 into the contest before the biggest goal of the night from Austin Pratt. The former Rebel scored the Pats Teddy Bear Toss goal with 5:19 left in the first to tie the game.

Drew Englot gave the home side a brief advantage early in the second, but Brett Davis brought the Rebels even 1:28 later with his seventh tally of the year.

Just 16 seconds into a Cam Hausinger hooking penalty late in the period, Ty Kolle notched his 11th goal of the season and what turned out to be the game-winning goal.

Rebels netminder Byron Fancy made 21 saves in the loss and Tarzwell now has goals in four straight games. Red Deer outshot the Pats 28-24 in the loss.

The Rebels will play the Lethbridge Hurricanes Wednesday, then host the Medicine Hat Tigers Friday. Saturday, Red Deer will wrap up the first half of the season against the Swift Current Broncos.
