Ryan Aynsley scored all three Rebel goals as they picked up their second straight win over the Fernie Ghostriders, this one by a score of 3-1. Aynsley scored a pair of power-play markers in the first period, and added an empty-netter late to seal Castlegar's 13th win of the season. Aynsley's goal tally is now up to 17 in only 15 games played. Judging by the game summary, goaltender Andrew Walton was also strong, making 37 saves on a night that saw Fernie score only once on 10 power-play opportunities.
With the win, Castlegar sits only 3 points behind Fernie for first in the Kootenay Conference. The Rebels also have a game in hand.
Up Next: A week between games for the Rebels, but they'll be on home ice twice next weekend, beginning Saturday, November 6th against the Kimberley Dynamiters. The team will be on hand at the Brick tomorrow (according to the coach) to help out at AM Ford's "Drive One For The Rebels" fundraiser. See the post below for details on the event.
