Brodie Buhler picked up a goal and an assist in Friday’s 7-3 loss to the Kimberley Dynamiters.

Grizzlies fall to last in league with weekend losses

Revelstoke Grizzlies lose 7-3 to Kimberley Dynamiters, 6-1 to Chase Heat; fall into tie for last place in KIJHL.

Just as their season appeared to be turning around, the Revelstoke Grizzlies faltered, dropping two games on the weekend to fall into a tie for last place in the KIJHL.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies made the long drive to Kimberley on Friday to face the Dynamiters, who were looking to get revenge for their loss at the hands of the Grizzlies two weeks earlier.

Aiden Silzer-Hooker was back in the Revelstoke Grizzlies lineup after missing one weekend’s worth of games when he demanded a trade a week earlier.

The game was a special teams affair, with Kimberley scoring four power play goals and one short handed goal on their way to a 7-3 win.

Jared Marchi got the Dynamiters on the board early in the first, but Matt MacDonald tied the game for Revelstoke later in the period. After that, Kimberley exploded, scoring five unanswered goals before Monty Chisholm and Brodie Buhler scored for Revelstoke in the third period.

The Dynamiters would get one more shot past Aaron Brandoli for a 7-3 win.

On Saturday, the Grizzlies returned home to battle the Chase Heat. Kyler Wilkinson scored the only goal for Revelstoke as they were thumped 6-1 on home ice.

The game turned ugly in the third period when Grizzlies’ defenceman jumped his Chase opponent and got nine minutes in penalties for the offence. Not long after, Monte Chisholm was handed a match penalty, forcing Revelstoke to play five minutes down to only three men.

Revelstoke failed to score on eight power play chances, and gave up three goals while short-handed in the loss.

Revelstoke currently has 14 points, six points behind the Sicamous Eagles for the final playoff spot in the Doug Birks Division.

This weekend the Grizzlies host the Columbia Valley Rockies on Friday and the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Saturday.
