DIVE- Turner Elson of the Red Deer Rebels dives for the puck during WHL action Wednesday evening against Kamloops. The Rebels fought a tough battle but lost 1-0.

Another tough battle

The Red Deer Rebels had their chances but just couldn’t beat Jeff Bosch.

The 20 year old Kamloops goalie, picked up earlier this year from Moose Jaw, kicked out 39 shots as the Blazers got by the Rebels 1-0 at the Enmax Centrium Wednesday night.

For the third straight game, the Rebels fired almost 40 shots at the opposition net, but Bosch had an answer for everything in picking up his first shutout of the year.

After going almost 55 minutes without a goal, it was Kamloops getting on the board first, when Brendan Ranford tallied his 11th goal of the season, a power play marker, with JT Barnett and Bronson Maschmeyer picking up assists.

Special teams were another big part of the game, as Red Deer had nine opportunities with the man adavantage but couldn’t score, whereas the Rebels’ penalty killers gave up one goal on four Blazers’ chances.

16 year old Bolton Pouliot, with 20 saves on the night, was outstanding in the Rebels net, as he was making just his second start of the season.

With the loss, Red Deer drops to 8-4 on the year, while Kamloops improves to 5-6-0-1.

The Rebels are back in action Friday night when they travel to Cranbrook to battle the Kootenay Ice.
