Mousseau holds back Rebels, Nitros win 3-1

Kimberley beats second-ranked team in KIJHL as it chases Fernie for divisional top spot.

Jeremy Mousseau stood tall in net on Saturday night, leading his team to a 3-1 victory over the visiting Castlegar Rebels at the Kimberley Civic Centre.

Mousseau had to do a little more work than his counterpart on the other end of the rink, stopping 36 shots, while Tanner Grey, Tyson Klingspohn and Eric Buckley provided the offense.

Dylan Bowerman scored for the Rebels in the third period, while stopper Jordan Gluck made 30 saves in defeat.

The Nitros failed to convert on seven power plays, while the Rebels were denied five separate times with the man-advantage.

Kimberley opened the scoring in the latter half of the first period on a goal from Grey, and doubled in the second frame, off an effort from Klingspohn.

Castlegar came alive in the third period, nearly doubling the Nitros on the shot clock and Bowerman was able to get his goal with nearly six minutes left in the frame.

However, Kimberley preserved their lead and held on for the win, with Buckley scoring an empty-net goal with just over a minute remaining.

Kimberley is chasing the Fernie Ghostriders for first place in the Eddie Mountain Division of the KIJHL with a three-point deficit. The Nitros are tied for seventh overall in the league with the Osoyoos Coyotes.

Next action for Kimberley is a mid week game this Tuesday against the visiting Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

The Thunder Cats are fourth in the Eddie Mountain division, and will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak.
