8:15pm Selkirk Rec Arena
December 12th, 2017
Some more exciting Tuesday night AA action between the second place Railcats and the fifth place Rebels in Selkirk. The Railcats have been heating up lately with 4 wins in the last 5 games, while the rebels are looking to climb in the standings before the holiday break.
With a bit of a slow start the Railcats got on the board first with a goal by Trott assisted by Reimer. The Rebels got their first of the night shorthanded by #10 Procter. Both teams went into the second tied at one.
In the second period, both teams struggled with penalty trouble, with both teams taking too many men penalties at one point. You could definitely notice the energy rising and the physicality picking up towards the end of period. The Rebels took the lead late in the second with a goal from Cador assisted by Chisholm. The Railcats had thought they tied it up shortly after that but the goal was disallowed.
Both teams came onto the ice after the flood with intensity, but the Rebels were the only team able to add to their score notching two more for a 4-1 win. Both goals scored in the third were by #8 Hapichuck.
