Rebels get a victory

Their seven-game winless streak has ended.

But it’s too late for the Surrey Rebels to sneak into the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League playoffs.

After an 18-2 drubbing on the road Sunday night against the Coquitlam Adanacs, an outstanding effort Monday night in Cloverdale led to a 12-8 Rebels victory over the Delta Islanders.

With one game remaining in the regular season, Surrey has a 5-12-2 record (won-lost-tied), but is three points back of the eighth place Port Coquitlam Saints.

Jeff Geyer was solid in the Rebels goal, making 62 saves as Delta held a 70-49 shots on goal advantage, and chipped in offensively with four assists.

Eamon Butler and Cody Gough led Surrey scorers with four goals each. Brad Olson with two goals, Max Richards and Conor Campbell were the other goal scorers. Olson had a six-point night, adding four assists.

The teams were tied 4-4 after 20 minutes, then Surrey erased a one-goal Islanders lead to go up 10-7 after two periods.

The Rebels close out the regular season tomorrow (Friday) at 8 p.m. in the Cloverdale Arena against Port Coquitlam.
