Grizzlies hold off Storm to take 2-0 series lead

The Revelstoke Grizzlies held off a third period push by the Kamloops Storm to win game two of their best-of-seven series 3-2.

Defencemen Garrett Kemmler and Tye Sanford and forward Brad Friedrich all scored for Revelstoke in the win, while goaltender Tory Caldwell made 41 saves, including 17 in the final frame.

Kemmler got the Grizzlies on the board when he batted in the rebound of a Bruce Silvera shot in the first period. Tye Sanford made it 2-0 Revelstoke early in the second when he fired home a shot off a faceoff.

Kamloops got within one midway through the second when Tyler Jackson scored an unassisted goal on a 2-on-1 break, firing a wrist shot past Caldwell, off the post and into the net.

Revelstoke was able to get their two goal lead back when Reid Blinkhorn and Friedrich broke in together. Blinkhorn carried the puck and fired the initial shot and Friedrich scooped up the rebound for the goal and a 3-1 lead.

In the third period the Grizzlies held on while the Storm peppered Caldwell with 18 shots. Their only goal came when Bevin Ollek put home a rebound to get Kamloops within one.

The win gives the Grizzlies a 2-0 series lead. Games three and four take place in Kamloops on Sunday and Monday.
