For the first game of their series with the Windsor Clippers, the Six Nations Rebels gave a close but safe showing on Friday, July, 5.
The first period gave way to two goals for the Clippers, but they were easily cancelled out as they played catch up with Wesley Whitlow and Mason Hill with singles, and Chayton King with a double.
This opened the second period 4-2, but the Clippers were keen on catching up as they buried three times throughout the 15 minutes. But the Rebels returned with two, one from Marshall Powless and another from Dayton Hill, both shorthanded.
This opened the period with a close score of 6-5 for the Rebels.
But after two goals were given back by the Clippers to end the period, the Rebels were able to return six. Jesse Longboat, Tycie Cowan and Daris Anderson each gave singles, while Marshall Powless offered up a three with a hat-trick to polish the period off.
This ended the game 12-7 for the Rebels.
Their second game took place on Tuesday, July 9, but didn’t finalize in time for publication.
Game 3 of the series is set for Friday, July 12 at 8 p.m., at the ILA.
