This past weekend the Rebels headed north for their last road trip of the regular season. After losing one-point games on home ice, the Rebels were ready for some stiff competition and gave their fans some great hockey to watch as they battled to upset the league-leading Saskatoon Stars. On Friday night, Kennedy Bobyck got everyone fired up when she opened the scoring with a short-handed goal in the first period. Mid-way through the second period Saskatoon snuck a couple past Tatum Shand, but Regina kept the pressure on and their efforts were rewarded when Chelsea Perepeluk found the net on the power play to tie things up. Unfortunately the Rebels started the final period short-handed and were hard-pressed by Saskatoon’s power-play, who scored on Shand within seconds of the third. Despite the Rebels efforts for the remainder of the third, they were unable to capitalize on any scoring chances and lost to the Stars with a final score of 5 – 2.
Sunday’s game was another very entertaining and fast-paced game and like the previous evening, they went into the third tied at 2 – 2, with both goals going to Delaney Frey. The Rebels were determined not to have a repeat of Friday’s outcome and worked hard at pressuring Saskatoon both defensively and offensively in the third. Unfortunately Saskatoon got one past Tatum Shand near the end of the game, giving them the win and final score of 3 – 2 over the Rebels. Regina outshot the Stars 22 – 18, whereas the Stars outshot the Rebels the previous evening 29 – 17.
The Rebels only have two games left in their regular season when they travel to Weyburn this Wednesday, February 11th to take on the Gold Wings and then meet the Notre Dame Hounds on home ice on Thursday, February 19th at 7:45 at the Cooperators C6 Arena. Come cheer them on!!
Regina Rebels headed west this past weekend to play the Battlefords Sharks. Saturday night’s game started off promising with a 3 - 0 lead after the first period for Regina, with goals being scored by Delaney Frey, Lilla Carpenter-Boesch, and Chelsea Perepeluk. The Sharks battled back, scoring two in the second and one in the third period to tie things up. Delaney Frey answered back with a power play goal to put the Rebs back in the lead, but it was to be short-lived when the Sharks scored again, forcing the game to go to overtime. Within a minute, Lilla Carpenter-Boesch found the net, giving the Rebels the win and final score of 4 – 3. Tatum Shand faced 25 shots, while Battlefords goalie faced 33 shots from Regina.
Sunday’s game was another close match but this time it was the Sharks who opened up the scoring on Shand in the first period. It wasn’t until the second that Kelsey Davies evened things up. The Rebels came out strong in the third, scoring three goals (Jordyn Miller, Lilla Carpenter-Boesch, and Mackenzie Kuffner). This gave them a comfortable 4 – 1 lead, but once again, the Sharks did not go down without a fight, scoring a short-handed and power play goal to put them within a one-goal difference. The last few minutes of the game were tense, but Regina came out victorious with a final score of 4 – 3 over the Battlefords Sharks. Way to go girls!

Shaftesbury Titans Prep Winter Classic
The Regina Rebels travelled to Winnipeg’s MTS Iceplex this past weekend to compete in the Shaftesbury Titans Winter Classic Tournament.
They kicked off the tournament on Friday, meeting one of the top ranked teams in North America (and eventual tournament champions), the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres U19 team. Zoe Istace played outstanding, facing 42 shots, while the Rebels collectively worked hard at putting 11 shots on the opposition’s goalie. With a 7 – 0 loss, the girls put that game behind them and came out strong against the Red Deer Sutter Fund Chiefs later that evening, playing a much better game. Red Deer scored their only goal on Tatum Shand in the first, while the Rebels’ Chelsea Perepeluk got two and Delaney Frey netted one in the remaining periods of the game, giving the Rebels a 3 – 1 win.
Saturday morning’s game was against St. Mary’s Academy Flames. These two teams were very evenly matched and gave each other a great game for the entire sixty minutes. Tatum Shand stopped 24 of the 25 shots, while St. Mary’s goalie faced 21 shots, allowing only Emelia MacDougall to get one past her. The Flames pulled their goalie with just over a minute left to give them a one-man advantage and hopes of winning the game, but the Rebels held strong, forcing the tie. This gave Regina an overall record of 1 – 1 – 1 and a second place finish in their pool to advance to the quarter finals.
Saturday evening’s game was a must win to advance to the semi-finals and again, the Rebels gave their competitors, Pursuit of Excellence Black, stiff competition! It wasn’t until half way through the second that Rebels’ Kennedy Bobyck opened up the scoring. The Rebels held the lead going into the third until Pursuit scored on Tatum Shand with only seven minutes left in the game. After sixty minutes of regular play, the tie had to be broken in a five minute, four-on-four overtime period. The Rebels battled hard, creating an excellent scoring chance that almost ended the game, but unfortunately Pursuit came back hard into the Rebels end and scored a quick one on Shand making it a final score of 2 – 1 for the B.C. team. A heartbreaker for sure!
On Sunday morning the Rebels played for seventh place in the sixteen team tournament against Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres U16 team and again, it was an evenly matched, fast-paced game that was very entertaining to watch! Kelsey Davies scored the Rebels only goal and Tatum Shand only allowed one goal in the regular sixty minutes of play, which meant another overtime period for the Rebels. Despite the girls’ gritty effort and determination, the Sabres scored in overtime and claimed the win. Although disappointing, the Rebels had an excellent showing at this tournament and played very well, demonstrating excellent team work! Their coaches and fans were very proud of their efforts!
Their next game is on home ice against Melville on Wednesday, January 21st at 7:45 in the Cooperators C6 arena. Come cheer them on!
The Rebels got right into the swing of things after the holiday season, playing three games their first week back.
On Wednesday they headed to Wilcox to take on the Notre Dame Hounds. The Rebels outplayed the Hounds with final shots being 38 to 11 in the Rebel’s favour. Santana Gravelle and Kennedy Bobyck scored the only two goals of the game, while Tatum Shand allowed only one goal in sixty minutes of play, giving the Rebels a 2 – 1 victory.
The following weekend Regina hosted the league’s first place team, the Saskatoon Stars. The girls gave their spectators some great entertainment in two very closely matched games. On Saturday, the Stars held a two goal lead for most of the first period until Delaney Frey netted one near the end of the first. The Rebels battled hard for the next two periods, pulling Tatum Shand with fifty seconds left on the clock, hoping the extra man advantage would force the tie. Unfortunately Saskatoon found the empty net with only 43 seconds left, making it a final score of 3 – 1 over the Rebels. Final shots on net were 41 – 11 for the Saskatoon hockey club.
A similar battle ensued the following day, with no scoring in the first forty minutes of play. It wasn’t until the third period that Saskatoon put a power play goal past Zoe Istace, but Rebels’ Chelsea Perepeluk answered right back, tying the game at 1 – 1. It was looking like things were going to go into overtime but Saskatoon snuck one past Istace with only 46 seconds left on the clock. With dying seconds on the clock, the Rebels didn’t give up and kept battling, forcing some good shots on the Saskatoon tender. Unfortunately they lost the game with a final score of 2 – 1 for the Stars. It was a very evenly matched game with final shots on net being 22 – 21 for the Stars.
The Rebels will spend this week preparing for a road trip to the Shaftesbury Titans Winter Classic in Winnipeg, Manitoba from January 16th to 18th. Good luck Rebels!
On Dec 16th the Regina Rebels players took time out of their busy schedule to give back to the community. They joined the Big Sister Christmas party that took place at the Northwest Leisure Center in Regina.
The players were paired up with a child and they spent the night making Christmas cards, crafts and swimming. The Big Sisters Christmas party was a huge success with lots of laughter and Christmas spirit.
The Rebels finished the last week of their 2014 hockey season with three home games. The first game, played on Thursday, December 18th, was against the Weyburn Gold Wings and despite some moments of gritty effort, the Rebels lost the game, 3 – 0. They left the rink disappointed, but returned the following Saturday and Sunday with more energy and a desire to give the Battleford Sharks some good competition. On Saturday, Zoe Istace took the win in net, stopping 17 of the 21 shots on net. Rebel goal scorers were Lilla Carpenter-Boesch (3), Delaney Frey, Kennedy Bobyck, and Chelsea Perepeluk. Final shots on net were 30 – 21 for the Rebels and a final score of 6 -4 over the Sharks. On Sunday, the Rebels continued to work hard as a team, both offensively and defensively, giving their fans another great game to watch. Tatum Shand got the shut-out, stopping all 19 shots on her net, while Battleford’s faced an astounding 46 shots on net, only letting Vayda Kotyk and Mackenzie Kuffner shoot a couple past them, giving the Rebels the win!
The Regina Rebels players, coaches and management would like to wish you Merry Christmas and the best in 2015.
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!
December 7, 2014
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!
