The Valley Rebels' season of frustration continued Saturday July 8th in Nanaimo with a 21-5 loss to the Timbermen. The undermanned Rebels were blitzed 9-1 in the opening period, but managed better in the second period, only being outscored 7-3. A goal by Tim Whipple with 25 seconds left in the game partly offset the five goals surrendered in the final frame to close things out. Ryan MacDonald (1G, 3A) led Rebels scoring, while Devon Winter and Jeff Lissimore were very busy in the net, combining to stop 46 of 67 shots.
The Rebels' final game of the 2017 season is Saturday July 15th when they visit the Royal City Capitals in New Westminster.
