The Red Deer Rebels ended the Brandon Wheat Kings season with a 2-1 OT win at the MasterCard Memorial Cup on Wednesday.
The first goal of the contest came over halfway through the second period when Tim McGauley (1) stole a clearing attempt and ripped a shot into the top corner to make it 1-0 Wheat Kings.
It stayed that way until 5 minutes left in the third when the Rebels tied it up thanks to Adam Musil who chipped in his 1st to make it 1-1 and that forced overtime for the first time at the tournament.
Evan Polei (2) scored the game winner for Red Deer after the Rebels forced a turnover in the offensive zone and the Brandon Wheat Kings were eliminated from the MasterCard Memorial Cup.
The Rebels (2-1) will play the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (1-2) in Friday's semi-final.
