KIJHL: Leafs fall in OT to Rebels

Nick Headrick scored in the dying seconds of overtime to lift Castlegar past Nelson 2-1 on Saturday.

Leafs goalie Patrick Ostermann stopped nearly every shot from the Rebels except this one in overtime.

Nick Headrick scored in the dying seconds of overtime to lift the Castlegar Rebels past the Nelson Leafs 2-1 on Saturday.

Headrick capitalized on a power play with just 46 seconds left in the contest for the Rebels’ third straight win.

Darren Medeiros also scored for Castlegar (27-12-2), while goaltender Paul Broadbent finished with 22 saves.

Patrick Ostermann replied with 38 saves for Nelson (17-23-2) with Levi Hulston adding all the offence the team would get.

Medeiros put the Rebels up on the power play 11:14 into the first, but Hulston responded just 28 seconds later. Nelson was lucky to get a goal in the period at all – the Leafs were outshot 13-3 in the first.

The Leafs have lost three straight but secured a playoff spot with Spokane’s 5-0 loss to Fernie on Friday.
