Tier 3 Smokies take down Rebels in playoff

A third-period comeback wins the game-3 match for the Tier 2 Greater Trail Pee Wee Smoke Eaters.

The Tier 3 Greater Trail Pee Wee Smoke Eaters’ forward Zack Donal just misses on this chance against the Castlegar Pee Wee Rebels Tuesday night. But down 3-1, the Smokies would eventually solve the Rebel goalie as they made a dramatic third-period comeback, netting three goals in the final 10-minutes including the 4-3 winner by Cory Ihas (lower left) with 43 seconds remaining in regulation to win the Game-3 rubber match against Castlegar and earn a berth to the Tier 3 provincials in Nelson next month.
