Mallard’s Team of the Week — KIJHL Champion Castlegar Rebels


first_imgThe Castlegar Rebels played coy for most of the season, sitting the balance of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League campaign in second spot in the Murdoch Division.But when the playoffs rolled around the Rebels turned up the intensity to roll to the KIJHL crown with a 16-4-0-1 record. Ironically the toughest games came during the run to capturing the Murdoch Division title as both Spokane Braves and Beaver Valley Nitehawks — the latter taking the Rebels to seven games — pushed Castlegar before the Sunflower City franchise prevailed.After winning the Murdoch, the Rebels won eight of night against the Golden Rockets and a tired North Okanagan Knights squad to clinch the playoff crown.The Rebels capped off the series against the Knights, winning 4-0 before a jubilant Castlegar home crowd.Staff and management at Mallard’s Source for Sports would like to salute the Rebels with Team of the Week honours.Pictured are the beaming Rebels with the KIJHL trophy after Monday’s championship clinching win at the Arena Complex in Castlegar.last_img
