Ryan Cooper scored four goals as the Nelson Leafs defeated the Castlegar Rebels 5-3 on Sunday afternoon.

Cooper scored all four goals in a row, with three coming in the second period. Logan Wullum added an empty-net goal and Caiden Kreitz stopped 21 shots for the Leafs (32-8-3), who won their fifth straight game.
