Tyler Reay picked up four assists in two games for the Revelstoke Grizzlies last weekend.

Grizzlies earn three points on road trip

Revelstoke Grizzlies beat Chase Heat 5-2 and lose to Sicamous Eagles 5-4 in double-OT on Saturday.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies took on two division rivals last weekend, downing the Chase Heat 5-2 on Friday before falling to the Sicamous Eagles 5-4 in double-overtime on Saturday.

“There’s definitely going to be a big rivalry this year between us and Chase and Sicamous. I think our whole division is going to be tight this year,” said coach Kevin Kraus following the weekend action.

Friday night saw the Revelstoke Grizzlies travel to Chase to take on the Heat, who beat Revelstoke a week earlier.

Aiden Silzer-Hooker, a Revelstoke native, gave Chase a 1-0 lead after the first period, but Austin Donaldson tied it up for Revelstoke with a penalty shot goal early in the second. Chase made it 2-1 when Catlin McLeod scored a power play goal midway through the frame.

When the third period started, Revelstoke took on new life, putting four pucks in the net for a 5-2 win. Dylan Ossman, Braden Seyl, Spencer Samuel and Darnel St. Pierre all score for the Grizzlies. Aaron Brandoli stopped 27 shots in nets.

“We played well. We took care of our chances and put Chase away,” said Kraus. “We didn’t let them get back in the game like we had in previous games.”

On Saturday, Revelstoke travelled to Sicamous, looking for its second win of the year over their Eagle Pass rivals.

Riley Creighton got the Grizzlies on the board first with his first goal of the year near the midway point of the period. He was assisted by Cody Hendrickson.

Brett Trofanenko tied it up for Sicamous later in the period but Ossman restored Revelstoke’s lead with a minute to go.

Samuel made it 3-1 Grizzlies 95 seconds into the second period, but Revelstoke’s lead didn’t last as Nathan Grieve and Corbin Marcotte scored goals 100 seconds apart to tie the game heading into the third period.

In the final frame, Brodie Buhler scored for Revelstoke and Connor Buick for Sicamous to make the score 4-4 and send the game to overtime.

There, Cameron Berry scored with 2:05 left to go in the second overtime period to give Sicamous a 5-4 win.

Goaltender Conrad MacMillan made 49 saves for Revelstoke in the loss.

“Saturday night I thought from the get go for both teams was a very sloppy game. It was back-and-forth and a lot of the goals weren’t very nice,” Kraus said. “We had them up in the third and let a weak one in to tie it and a controversial goal in the overtime and they ended up squeaking one out there.”

Kraus singled out Dylan Ossman for his strong play. The rookie forward scored two goals over the weekend, giving him four on the season. “The kid just seems to put the puck in the net.”

He also highlighted the plays of the local forwards on the team – brothers Kent and Cody Hendrickson, Brodie Buhler, Chevy Hantula and Riley Creighton. “I thought those five kids really stood out for me and they battled for me all weekend and played good,” Kraus said.

The Grizzlies also made one trade last week, sending defenceman Tyler Bolduc to the North Okanagan Knights for future considerations to make room for some younger defencemen and the return of Andrew Standish.

Revelstoke was set to face the Kamloops Storm at home on Tuesday night, after press time. This weekend the Grizzlies host the Kelowna Chiefs on Friday before heading down to Summerland on Saturday to take on the Steam.
