Even against a team that’s lost far more than it’s won this season, Friday night’s tilt was anything but a guaranteed win for the Red Deer Rebels.

But somehow, they pulled it out -- barely -- winning 4-3 in dramatic comeback fashion against the visiting Regina Pats.

No one with the Red Deer Rebels is making excuses, but when you go up against a team that’s won seven games in a row, you’re likely going to have a tough night.

On Saturday, the Rebels had just that kind of night, losing 3-2 to the Moose Jaw Warriors while being outshot 46-18.

On the strength of an opportunistic first period, the Red Deer Rebels no longer have to say they’re on a losing streak.

Red Deer defeated division rival Calgary 6-2 on Friday, and improve to 5-0 against the Hitmen this season.
