he win has Rebels management once again hoping that the ship has been righted as when the team has a balanced lineup and strong defence, they can take on the PBL’s best with success. The Rebels will take on the Camrose Roadunners on Tuesday night in Ryley in the early season home and home series. While no starter for the Rebels has been announced, RHP Craig Koughan will have a weeks rest while RHP Don Oslund might also be an option once again for the Rebels. One would have to assume that RHP Alex Roth will get the nod for the Roadrunners to try and bounce back after the pitching staff was hammered on Thursday night.
