Grizzlies outshoot Eagles to win 5-0

Revelstoke remains unbeaten at home this regular season

The Revelstoke Grizzles outshot the Sicamous Eagles on their way to a 5-0 win at home in the Forum Tuesday night. It was the Grizzlies’ first home game since Sept. 9. The Grizzlies are undefeated at home so far this regular season.

Revelstoke got off to a slow start, not scoring until captain Tommy Bodtker got one past Sicamous’ Zack Wickson with 2:41 to go in the first period.

Harley Bootsma added another with 17 seconds left on a power play with the assists going to Joel Scrimbit and Ullar Wiatzka.

The Grizzlies outshot the Eagles 63-18.

The teams met last week in Sicamous, where the Grizzlies picked up a 7-4 victory.

The Grizzlies continue their best start in seven seasons and travel to Kelowna to take on the Chiefs, before returning to the Forum Saturday night to face the Kamloops Storm.
