In front of over 5,000 fans at The Peavey Mart Centrium, The Red Deer Rebels beat The Brandon Wheat Kings 3-1 Friday night.

The Rebs got the game going right away as Kai Uchacz scored just :47 seconds into the first period. Another power play goal had Red Deer up 2-0 at the end of the first.

Brandon came back with a goal in the 6 minute period of the third, but Uchacz pretty sealed the deal with his second goal at the 13 minute mark.

They just need one more win in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter-final series to get to the next round. But it won't be easy.

The last three games have all had a 3-1 score, with the teams each battling back in the series.

Game 6 is back on the road to Brandon at 4:00 pm
