Men’s league, women’s and old-timers’ hockey all kicking off
The Revelstoke peewee Grizzlies kicked off their regular season with a dominating 12-2 win over Chase in Revelstoke on Sunday.
The Grizzlies controlled the play the whole way through the game to get off to a roaring start in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association’s Tier 4 division. The team plays its next game on Oct. 15 in Chase. Its next home game is not until Nov. 26.
Last year the peewee Grizzlies made it to the league finals before bowing out.
Meanwhile, the bantam Grizzlies started their season with a 5-4 loss to Vernon on Sunday.
The bantam Grizzlies will be looking to defend their league title. The team plays at home against Salmon Arm on Oct. 8 at 3 p.m.
The Revelstoke Minor Hockey Association is also icing pre-novice, novice and atom teams this year but for the first time in a long time, there is no midget team after the Revelstoke Minor Hockey failed to assemble a complete team.
In other Revelstoke hockey news, the men’s hockey league is hosting its draft at 7 p.m. this evening (Oct. 4). The league is down to five teams this year after Skookum Cycle dropped out. Play is expected to start next week, following the Thanksgiving long weekend.
