Only four games lie ahead for Rebels in regular season

The Rebels have kept the ball rolling with their latest triad of wins.

With a 20 game regular season, the Rebels have suffered only a single loss and have earned 15 game wins that are anticipated to continue to end a nearly perfect regular season with four games left to play.

This past week they entered three games and came out on top, but did entertain a close call.

On Thursday, May 30 the Rebels visited Hamilton to face the neighbouring Bengals with Marshall Powless opening the scoring in the first period.

But just as the Rebels scored, the Bengals returned. Austin Giles and Chayton King earned singles, but the Bengals went on to score one more and gave themselves a first period lead.

Going into the second however, the Rebels came out strong as Tycie Cowan earned his first while Chayton King, Austin Giles and Marshall Powless earned their seconds. They gave up one goal to the Bengals, which kickstarted the third period 7-5 for the Rebels.

The Rebels gave into several penalties and gave up two power play goals, but returned once with a shorthanded goal by Wesley Whitlow which closed the match a too-close-for-comfort 8-7 for the Rebels.

The second game landed on Friday, May 31 at home within the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena as the Rebels hosted the Guelph Regals.

With a slow start the only goal for the first period went to Marshall Powless, but this was a prelude to a killer second period.

Chayton King moved forward to earn three power play goals to make for a hat-trick and then buried unassisted later into the period. While Daylen Hill and Mason Hill buried their firsts, Marshall Powless went for his second. The Regals were unable to get past Rebels defence, and the period closed 8-1.

With a seven goal lead, Marshall Powless pushed for a hat-trick and an extra while Weylon Abrams and Austin Skye each earned singles to snuff out the Regals sole return. This closed the game 12-2 for the Rebels.

As for the third game, the Rebels met up with the Welland Generals for the second time on Sunday, June 2 at the Meridian Community Centre.

The Rebels gave up four goals to the Generals in the first, but quickly asserted their own lead by returning with six. Goals went to Austin Skye, Tycie Cowan, Dawit Martin, Jaxson Martin with singles and a double for Wesley Whitlow.

The second period took advantage of the Generals weak defence, as scoring racked up high for the Rebels. Wesley Whitlow with Marshall and Sidney Powless earned doubles early on, with singles from Austin Skye for his second and Tyler Foxe Mackenzie for his first.

The third slowed down with scoring as two goals were earned by Jaxson Martin and Tycie Cowan. Both were returned by the Generals, but the game closed 16-7 for the Rebels.

As they near the end of the season, only two more home games remain with the next landing on Friday, June 7 against the Niagara Thunderhawks at 8 p.m..
