Red Deer U15 AAA Rebels start season with series sweep over Leduc

Rebels are 3-0 to start season

The Red Deer U15 AAA Rebels have started the season with a bang.

Red Deer completed a three-game series sweep against the Leduc Oil Kings with a 5-2 victory at Servus Arena on Saturday.

“We’ll have lots of things to work on, but we got better and better as the three games went on,” said head coach Justin Jarmolicz.

“There was a whole bunch of improvement from the start of Game 1 to the end of Game 3. We’re happy and (the players) achieved their goal of getting three wins.”

William Jamieson scored two goals for the Rebels and Brandon Broks stopped 25 of 27 shots in the win. Brady Leroux, Dylan Ronald and Caleb Hadland also scored for Red Deer.

The Rebels also won the first game of the series 5-2 at Servus Arena. Connor Baumbach stopped 20 of 22 shots and Ronald, Hadland, Leroux, Jamieson and Brett Leslie each had a goal in that game. Walker Overwater and Riley Yzerman each had two assists.

The following day, the AAA Rebels beat the Oil Kings 8-1 at Leduc’s LRC Performance Arena. Jamieson, Hadland and Wyzykoski each had two goals – Overwater and Tristen Buckley scored as well. Broks stopped 32 of 33 shots in the win.

“The boys pushed hard at practice and are just happy to be back at the rink to do what they love. The 3-0 start is just the icing on the cake,” said Jarmolicz.

Red Deer will play a three-game series against the Sherwood Park United Cycle Flyers in November – one game will be played at home on Nov. 8 and the other two will be played on the road on Nov. 14-15.
