The Revelstoke Grizzlies hit rock bottom on Friday, losing to the Creston Valley Thunder Cats 11-2 at home in their only game last week. The game actually started out even, with the teams trading goals in the first half of the first period.
Kyler Wilkinson scored short-handed and Tre Mason scored a power play goal for Revelstoke while. After that, it was all Creston. They scored four goals in the second half of the period to go up 6-2 and chase Aaron Brandoli for the Grizzlies net.
The Thunder Cats added three more goals in the second and two in the third to cement the blowout. They out-shot the Grizzlies 53-21 in the process.
Revelstoke now finds themselves six points back of the Sicamous Eagles for the final playoff spot in the Doug Birks Division.
The Grizzlies will have three chances to redeem themselves this weekend. They’re in Kamloops to play the Storm on Friday and are in Sicamous on Saturday. On Sunday they host the Chase Heat at the Forum at 5 p.m.
