Another late rally fell just short for the Rebels.
After a shaky second period, the Fort Saskatchewan Junior B Rebels found a way to claw back, but lost 9-7 to the Okotoks Marauders.
In a heated north versus south battle, 25 penalties were handed out, resulting in 72 minutes in the box.
Fort Saskatchewan is one of the highest penalized teams in the league, coming into Saturday's (June 17) match averaging over 30 minutes per game.
After being down 8-4 going into the third period, Jack Marlow was able to start a rally. He found the back of the net twice and Jordan Diewert added one of his own.
"On the offensive end, I would say that we weren't really moving the ball like I know we can," said Marlow.
Newly acquired local, Brayden Parker made an impact in the transition game, bringing another aspect of speed to the Rebels line up.
"I think (we) just don't worry about what the refs call and just worry about our game and what we can do," said Parker.
Next up for the Fort will be round two of the Highway 21 rivalry as they head to Sherwood Park today (June 18), to take on the Titans. Game time is 6:30.
