Char-Lan Rebels rep. 'B' hockey teams are in action tonight, including one game in Maxville, where the novice Rebs will take on the Kemptville Panthers, at 6 p.m.

In Williamstown, the atom Rebels will play at 7 p.m., versus the Kemptville Panthers, and at 9:30 p.m., the major midgets will tangle with Brockville Braves.

All of these games are part of their respective UCMHL championship series. 

Char-Lan's bantams bowed out in the semifinal round, bounced by the Kemptville Panthers five points to one.
