Brandon Wheat Kings-3 Red Deer Rebels-5
And put another "W" on the schedule for the Red Deer Rebels, who have now won 9 games in-a-row. Over 5,000 fans came out to The Peavey Mart Centrium Saturday night to watch the home team beat Brandon 5-3 and keep their winning streak alive.
What looked like an easy night for Red Deer, after going up 3-0 after two periods, got a bit uncomfortable as the Wheat Kings would score a couple goals halfway through the third to make the score 3-2. Rebel's scoring sensation Kai Uchacz would score his 27th and 28th goals of the season to give Red Deer the winning and insurance goals.
Right wing for the Rebs Jhett Larson would get a goal and an assist, and would be named the first star of the game. Chase Wutzke would stop 27 of 30 shots as the winning goalie.
Red Deer will go on an extended 5-game road trip through Saskatchewan starting on Wednesday.
