Rebels seal regular season with a victory

SIX NATIONS — With what was hoped to be a close match up proved to be the fuel needed by the Rebels to garner communal support and take a strong victory against the Wallaceburg Red Devils on Friday, June 15 at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena.

With the Red Devils maneuvering with several players from Six Nations that played with players on the Rebels, it was anticipated to be either a friendly or rough game — it was much more of the latter.

Before a large crowd; within the first period alone Chayton King (2), Gates Abrams, Kobe Whitcomb and Garrett Vyse-Squire scored to bring the game up to 5-1 for the Rebels after the Red Devils initial first goal. But they paid a toll with two two minute penalties and the removal of Assistant Coach Terry Hill with an abuse of officials game misconduct call.

The second period didn’t allow the Red Devils any leeway either as Abrams, King, Jesse Longboat and Wesley Whitlow each scored around the one goal the Red Devils could muster. This brought the game to 9-2.

By the third period any hope for the Red Devils to make a comeback was out of the question, as goals by Justin Martin (2), Abrams, King, Tanner Baldin, and Whitcomb each found the net. The Red Devils were however able to earn themselves six goals in this period, but also found themselves in the box for 16 minutes of the period.

However, the Rebels took the cake for penalties as they earned one minute shy of an hour in penalty minutes and Abrams was also called for abuse of officials game misconduct.

If the Rebels wanted to make an intimidating statement at their home arena, they certainly did with Junior ‘B’ Playoffs soon to begin.
