Mappin scores first midget goal


Rookie centre Ty Mappin of Big Valley scored his first Alberta Midget Hockey League goal Sunday as his Red Deer Optimist Rebels lost 5-4 to the host Lloydminster Baker Hughes Bobcats.

Brendan Dennis, Cole Berreth and Brady Bakke also scored for the Rebels on Sunday, while Nick Glackin and Kirk Johnson tallied Saturday night in a 2-2 tie against the Boston Pizza Rangers at Fort Saskatchewan.

Mappin, 15, picked up an assist Oct. 2 as the Rebels opened their season with a 7-3 win over the Midget Tigers at Medicine Hat.

The Rebels’ home-opener is against Sherwood Park at 4:45 p.m. Saturday at Red Deer Arena.
