Mandi Schwartz Memorial Tournament 2014
The Rebels certainly lived up to their motto of “pride, passion, and purpose”, demonstrating excellent team work and skill for all six games of this prestigious tournament. Pool play started on Thursday morning against the Winnipeg Avros, with the Rebels winning 3 – 2. Later that evening, they faced off against Spruce Grove and handily defeated the Alberta team 7 – 0.
Friday afternoon’s game against B.C.’s Fraser Valley was another shut out, with a 4 – 0 win for the Rebels. Shaftesbury gave the Rebels a very exciting game on Friday evening that ended in a tie, which ended up going in Regina’s favour to win their pool and advance to the semi-finals against Pembina on Saturday. This was another very exciting game but unfortunately the referees decided to pull out the whistle with less than a minute left in the last period to give the Manitoba team a one-man advantage going into overtime and a 4 – 3 win over the Rebels. This heartbreaking loss put the Rebels into the bronze medal match against the Swift Current Wildcats on Sunday. Despite having already played five games, the Rebels dug deep and gave it their “all” in a very aggressive and fast-paced game. Their efforts were awarded with a 2 – 0 win over the Wildcats and a third place finish overall in the tournament! Way to go girls - what a great show of determination and desire!
Their next games are all on home ice when they meet Weyburn on Thursday, December 18th and Battlefords on Saturday, December 20th, and Sunday December 21st! GO REBELS!

The Rebels hosted the Weyburn Gold Wings on Wednesday night, giving the spectators a great game to watch. Regina had some very good scoring chances on Weyburn’s Chantal Burke, who made some really great saves on the 22 shots faced. Kelsey Davies and Kennedy Bobyck each put one past her, while Tatum Shand faced 34 shots in sixty-five minutes of play, allowing only two goals in. Tied at 2 -2 after regulation time, it ended up going to yet another shoot out – the fourth of the Rebels’ regular season! After five shooters each, Weyburn’s Madison Solie snuck one past Shand, giving the Wings a 3 – 2 over the Rebels.
The following Friday, spectators “Rocked the Rink” at the Cooperators Centre when the Rebels hosted the Swift Current Wildcats. Once again the crowd was entertained to a fast-paced game with end to end action. Swift opened up the scoring on Tatum Shand, before Kelsey Davies answered back, tying things up before the end of the first. The game remained tied at 1 -1, until Lilla Carpenter-Boesch scored the game winning goal with less than 3 minutes left on the clock. Final shots on net were 33 – 29 for the Wildcats.
The Rebels will be participating in Notre Dame’s Mandi Schwartz Memorial Tournament from December 11 – 14th. They will face Spruce Grove, Fraser Valley, and Shaftesbury in their pool play. Good luck and play hard Rebels!
Road Trip to Swift Current
The Rebels travelled to Swift Current this past weekend to take on the Wildcats. Saturday’s game was a hard fought battle that ended in a shoot-out victory for Regina. The Rebels defense and offence worked hard the entire sixty minutes. Mackenzie Kuffner, Chelsea Perepeluk, and Kelsey Davies put in 3 of the 24 shots on Swift’s goalie Jacey Book. Tatum Shand took the win in net, stopping 24 of the 27 shots during regulation time. With no scoring in overtime, Shand went on to shut down all three of Swift Current’s shooters. Regina’s second shooter, Kelsey Davies, put one past Book, giving the Rebels the win! These teams faced off again Sunday afternoon. Scoring didn’t open up until into the second period when the Wildcats put two goals past Zoe Istace. Delaney Frey narrowed the scoring gap in the third, but the Wildcats quickly answered back with their third and final goal of the game. Shots on net were 23 to 13 in favour of the Wildcats and a final score of 3 to 1 over the Rebels.

Road Trip to Prince Albert
There were no “treats” this Halloween for the Rebels, who played a two game series hosted by the Prince Albert A & W Bears. On Friday night, the Bears came out strong and gave the Rebels a great game that ended up being a shut-out win for the Bears’ Jessica Vance, who faced 20 shots over the course of sixty minutes. Rebel’s goalie, Tatum Shand, played very well, stopping 37 of the 38 shots on net. Clarkson’s power play goal was the only one to make the scoreboard, giving the Bears the win.
Saturday’s game saw a lot of end-to-end action, with both teams battling hard. The first period went scoreless and it wasn’t until half way through the second that Prince Albert’s Madison Cassavant put one past Shand. A few minutes later, Kennedy Bobyck answered back, tying things up. Despite the Rebels best efforts, this was to be their only goal of the game. The final score ended up being 4 – 1 for the Bears. It was a tough couple of losses but the Rebels will build from this and spend the next week and a half regrouping, and mentally preparing for their next home game against the Swift Current Wildcats on Wednesday, November 12th at 7:45!
