Rebels close with a victory

Junior B lacrosse team misses playoffs

With nothing to play for but pride, the Surrey Rebels showed they had plenty of it.

Knocked out of the race for a playoff spot a week earlier, the Junior B lacrosse team concluded their regular season schedule with a 9-7 win over the Port Coquitlam Saints Friday night at the Cloverdale Arena.

The win allowed the Rebels to finish the season with a 6-13-1 record, one place out of the top eight in the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League standings.

A natural hat trick from Cody Gough opened the scoring, and a goal from Graeme Harkison upped the difference to 4-0 midway through the first period. Surrey took a 4-2 lead into the first intermission, but built the advantage to 7-2 on Harkison’s second goal of the game and singles from Eamon Butler and Max Richards.

Brandon Baldo and Mat Cruickshank tallied in the third period, when the Rebels held on for the win. Brad Olson was the top playmaker with three assists.

Port Coquitlam outshot their hosts 50-40, but Jeff Geyer blocked 43 shots in the Surrey goal.
