Tyler Steenbergen fired four goals — including one short-handed — to lead the Red Deer Rebels White to a 6-5 win over the Rebels Black in Sunday’s consolation final of the Red Deer Thanksgiving major bantam hockey tournament.

Colby Sissons and Kyle Conford also tallied for the Rebels White, who got a 32-save performance from netminder Lane Congdon. Scoring for the Rebels Black were Matt Froehlick with two goals, Parker Smyth, Luke Coleman and Jeff deWitt.

The Rebels Black split a pair of games Friday while the Rebels White were 0-2. On Saturday, the Rebels White fell 6-2 to the Airdrie Xtreme to conclude their round-robin portion of the four-team tournament, getting their goals from Reed Engman and Tyler Graber.

The Rebels White then fell 7-1 to Airdrie in a semifinal. Landon Mackenzie notched the lone goal in a losing cause and Congdon made 24 saves.

The Rebels Black, meanwhile, defeated the Spruce Grove Saints by default in their final scheduled round-robin contest. Spruce Grove cited potential exhaustion with their past and present league schedule for the default, but was allowed to continue in the tournament and defeated the Rebels Black 4-2 in a semifinal.

Smyth and Brady Park scored for the Rebels Black goals, with Graydon Larson making 21 saves.

Airdrie defeated Spruce Grove 5-3 in the championship final.
