Perseverance Pays Off
Submitted By CherylAnn Golem on Saturday, November 30, 2019
The Township of Chatsworth and District, Moggie Valley Timber Inc., Midget Rep Rebels outplayed the Goderich Sailors overall, but some lapses in judgement had them trailing until late in the third when the perseverance paid off and they pulled out the W.

A quick first shift by the Rebels had the play all in the Sailors end which had the Sailors scrambling a bit and forced them to ice the puck to take the pressure off.  The game then evened out a bit with some end to end play and some good saves by Rebel goalie Lawson Cumming.
Despite strong play, the Rebels weren't able to capitalize and the first ended 0 - 0.  Good news was the Rebels had managed to channel their emotions and play a penalty free period.  The second saw a couple of Rebel penalties and one of them saw a pile up in the Rebel crease result in a contested goal but, with no instant replay, the goal stood and the Sailors took the lead.
Early in the game, the Rebels had a powerplay resembling their early season play with the Sailors getting all the scoring opportunities.  But, after finding themselves down a goal, their next powerplay was text book with a number of shots including a crossbar and a post.  Even when the Goderich goalie lost his stick they just couldn't quite capitalize.
The end of the second saw the Sailors still up 1 - 0 but the Rebels continued to push.  Goderich escalated the body contact and the Rebels kept their cool getting only 1 penalty in the third.  Perseverance paid off when an amazing passing play saw the puck go from Hunter Schultz to Calvin Stewart with Austin McComb burying the tying goal at 2:41 of the third. Cumming had to be strong as the Sailors made several attempts to regain the lead and Rebels had some excellent chances of their own.  With less than a minute remaining in the game, Cory Rasmussen threw a breakout pass to Alex DeJong in the neutral zone.  DeJong surfed through the sailors, gained the blue line and beat the defense on the outside to snipe one by the Sailors goalie for the go ahead goal with only 43 seconds remaining in the game.
Rebels hung on for their second win in a row.
This midget Rebels team is in Durham Sunday December 1st for a tournament.  Come out a support them @ 9:15am and again @ 1pm with championship games later that day.
Let's go Rebels!!!
