What started off a hard fought battle turned into a disappointing 5-2 loss last night by the Broncos.

The Red Deer Rebels scored 3 goals in the 3rd period, led by Martin Hanzal (Hans-all) , the WHL's leading scorer.

Levi Nelson and Jeremy Schenderling scored for the Broncos with Kyle Moir taking the loss in net.

The Broncos next action is on Friday when they travel to Moose Jaw.
