Bruins goalie Kiernan Matsuba tries to hold down the fort as the Rebels in black buzz around the net in the first period of Friday's game at the GF Arena.

The visiting Castlegar Rebels crushed the hometown Border Bruins 8-3 in an inter-divisional match-up Friday night at the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena.

The Rebels went up 2-0 quickly with Cal Owens scoring 34 seconds into the game and Ryan Rosich scoring two minutes later.

Bryson Yee brought the Bruins within one (assisted by Mitch Pearson and Stephan Shikaze) at 14:49.

Rebs went up 3-1 12 seconds later with a goal by Mike Bhatoa.

Grand Forks had several chances to get even in the first period but couldn’t finish.

The visitors scored two early goals once again in the second to take a 5-1 lead.

Pearson scored the Bruins final goal at 12:52 of the second assisted by Lukas Peters and Josh Gladman.

Starting netminder Kiernan Matsuba was pulled after giving up five goals on 12 shots. Mark Pearson fared a little better turning away 17 shots out of 20 after replacing Matsuba early in the second.

The teams return to the ice tonight (Saturday, Nov. 22) in Castlegar.
