Great goaltending wasn't enough to get past the St Albert Crude.
 
On Tuesday (May 9), the Fort Saskatchewan Junior B Rebels were unable to end up on top of another hard fought game, losing 5-4 in overtime.
 
Jordan Diewert found the back of the net just over 13 minutes in to the first period and Jackson Marlow added another to give the Rebels a 2-1 lead.
 
In the second, Marlow scored again and Ryan Wilson unleashed a power-play blast from just outside the 24' box to make it 4-2.
 
Costly penalties ended up letting St. Albert get back in the game and bringing it within one.
 
With 6:08 left to go in the third frame, a melee broke out after a Crude player ran over a Fort Sask defender. A line brawl ensued, resulting in six fighting majors and St. Albert players leaving the bench to join the scrum.
 
After the penalties were sorted out, the Crude coach wasn't finished voicing his displeasure with the referees and continued on with a few less than kind gestures to the Rebels' bench. He was ejected.
 
Almost two minutes after, St. Albert was able to capitalize on a power-play breakdown by the Rebels resulting in a 4-4 game.
 
Overtime was needed to solve this one and 25 second in, a too many men call resulted in a capitalized penalty shot for the Crude.
 
"We're happy with the way the boys played and we wouldn't ask them to play any different," said Chris Redford, assistant coach for the Rebels.
 
Jacob Parent was phenomenal in net making 42 saves in the loss, including a penalty shot save with 6.8 seconds left in the third period.
 
"We shot ourselves in the foot," said Parent. "Our defense was solid we just made small mental mistakes."
 
Fort Saskatchewan will make the long trip to Winnipeg for their next set of games on May 27-28.
