Alex Meeker scored in the third period as the Nelson Leafs beat the Castlegar Rebels 5-4 to stretch their winning streak to four games.

Jack Karran, Aigne McGeady-Bruce, Sawyer Hunt and Dale Howell, with a short-handed goal, also scored for the Leafs (13-14-2). Billy Gorn meanwhile stopped 30 shots in his third straight appearance for the Leafs.
