Grizzlies, Eagles split opening games

Revelstoke Grizzlies beat Sicamous Eagles 2-1 in series opener, lose game two 5-2.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies split the opening two games of its best-of-seven series with the Sicamous Eagles on the weekend.

Revelstoke won game one 2-1 behind a 46-save performance by goaltender Aaron Brandoli. Brayden Beckley scored in the first period and Tyler Reay potted the Grizzlies second marker four minutes into the second period to put Revelstoke up 2-1.

After that, the team held on, with Brandoli holding the fort in net. He was beaten once, by Cameron Berry in the third period, in the win.

In game two, Sicamous once again peppered Brandoli in nets, firing 55 shots on the Revelstoke goaltender. This time they were able to put five pucks past him for a 5-2 win. TJ Christensen opened the scoring for Revelstoke, but Sicamous got goals from Nathan Grieve and Brayden Taekema to make it 2-1 at the end of one.

Berry scored his second of the series to give Sicamous a 3-1 lead early in the second, but Christensen got Revelstoke back within one just over two minutes later.

Sicamous put the game away in the third, with goals from Berry and Brendan Devries for a 5-2 final.

Revelstoke played both games without leading scorer Austin Donaldson, who was out sick.

In the other Doug Birks Division series, the North Okanagan Knights won the opening two games of its series against the Kamloops Storm on the weekend.

Game three is Monday night at the Revelstoke Forum. Game four is on Tuesday at the Forum.
