Red Deer Rebels rally in third period to overcome Rockets

Final game of B.C. road trip Monday in Prince George

The Red Deer Rebels shook finally the third-period blues in Kelowna.

For the first time on the B.C. road trip, the Rebels didn’t allow a third period tally and instead, Jace Isley buried for the visitors as Red Deer earned a 3-2 victory over the Kelowna Rockets.

Kyle Masters was credited with his first career WHL goal on the power play late in the opening frame.

Rebels veteran Josh Tarzwell also notched his 26th goal of the year in the opening frame and was first star for his efforts.

After Red Deer garnered a 2-0 lead through 20 minutes, Kelowna bounced back with a pair of goals in the middle frame. Kaeden Korczak scored midway through frame and Pavel Novak notched his 20th shorthanded with 2:20 to go in the period.

Isley collected his fifth goal of the season with 9:49 left in the game, and both Arshdeep Bains and Ben King each added their second assist of the contest.

Red Deer outshot the Rockets 28-26 in the win and were 2-for-7 on the power play while killing off all four minor penalties.

Byron Fancy was solid for the Rebels in net, turning aside 24 shots. It was Fancy’s first win since Jan. 31.
