November can’t end soon enough for the Nelson Leafs.

The Leafs lost for the ninth time in their last 10 games on Wednesday with a 6-3 defeat to the Rebels in Castlegar.

Ed Lindsey scored twice for the Rebels (13-8-0), who have won eight in a row. Logan Styler, Nico Sidoni, Jacob Boston and John Moeller each chipped in with a goal apiece.

Charlie Wilkie, Jordan Unger and Dale Howell replied for the Leafs (9-13-2), who continued their trend of outshooting an opponent by a wide margin in a loss.
