Ghostriders 4 Rebels 2

(Castlegar leads series 3-2)

A short recap since I wasn't able to watch the game tonight (though Trail city council did look smashing in their 1961 Team Canada jerseys!).

Connor Morgan might end up being the story of Game 5 in more ways than one. The Ghostrider forward scored the eventual game-winner with 1:29 remaining in the second period as Fernie doubled up Castlegar 4-2. What remains to be seen is whether his checking from behind major on Tyler Jones will warrant any extra discipline, historically such fouls have been good for a one-game suspension, but since I didn't see the hit, I'll leave the guesswork to those in charge.

Another 3-point night for Thomas Abenante, who continues to be dynamite in the playoffs for Fernie. Luke Richardson and Josh Garneau also tallied for the home side, while Taylor Anderson and Aaron Brewer (according to Jon Zacks) replied for the Rebels.

Up Next: Castlegar will get another opportunity to close out the Ghostriders tomorrow night at the Complex in Game 6 (7:30 PT). The Rebels are 2-0 in home fixtures in which they can close out the opposition in these playoffs, we'll see if that statistic holds true tomorrow.
