Red Deer Rebels emerged victorious 6-3 against Medicine Hat Tigers in their exhibition game in Stettler on Saturday, Sept. 19.

This at first seemed a far cry as the opponents scored swiftly in the first period and Rebels was down 2-0.

Medicine Hat player David Quenneville scored in the first 13 minutes of the first period, followed by another goal in the next five minutes by Markus Eisenschmid, and assisted by Brad Forrest and Zach Fischer.

“It was a good result for us after going down 2-0 and it is always great to play the Tigers in that building every year because it is a smaller ice surface than we are used to and things happen very fast which helps us evaluate our players,” said Steve O’Rourke, assistant coach, Red Deer Rebels. “I believe we played a solid game and continued to focus on the little details to be successful.”

In the second period Red Deer Rebels fired all cylinders as they managed to score five goals in a matter of seven minutes, while Tigers player Matt Staples managed to get the puck in once.

Josh Mahura started the scoreboard ticking for Rebels as he scored in the 11th minute of the second period.

Within a couple of minutes of his scoring Jack McClelland scored, assisted by Presten Kopeck.

Grayson Pawlenchuk scored twice soon after, for his first goal he was assisted by Kayle Doetzel.

Jeff de Wit assisted him in his second goal.

This was followed by Presten Kopeck’s goal assisted by Colton Bobyk, which gave Rebels the lead of 5-3.
