The Rebels were able to get two late second period goals but were unable to narrow the gap in the third. Anthony Galliart picked up the win for Grand forks turning away 41 of 43 shots.

Castlegar took the 1-0 series lead with a 3-1 win on Tuesday at the Castlegar Complex. Carson Wornig got the winner for the Rebels early in the third period. Jordan Robertson (assisted by Brandon Savaia) scored the only goal for the Bruins.
