Revelstoke Grizzlies come closer, but slide continues

Revelstoke Grizzlies lose to Golden Rockets, Fernie Ghostriders and Kamloops Storm last week.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies losing streak reached 18 games after they dropped three more last week.

Revelstoke was in Golden last Wednesday to face the Rockets. The game started out even, with both teams scoring twice in the first period. John Jamieson and Kent Hendrickson scored for Revelstoke.

The Rockets broke the game open in a 4:30 stretch of the second, scoring four quick goals and chasing Grizzlies’ goalie Jaxon Nohr from the net. Golden added a seventh goal in the third for a 7–2 win.

Revelstoke only managed 15 shots in the game.

On Friday, Revelstoke hosted the Fernie Ghostriders in front of a raucous crowd at the Forum. A poor first period cost the Grizzlies in what was otherwise their best game in a long time.

Fernie put 27 shots on net and scored three times in the first to pull ahead 3-0. Afterwards, the team’s were even, with Brodie Buhler, Brendan Jay and Ethan Larson scoring for Revelstoke in the second. Still, two Ghostrider goals put Fernie up 5-3 heading into the third. In the third, Revelstoke pressed for the tying goal, but it was Fernie who got the only marker and the 6-3 win.

On Saturday, the Grizzlies were in Kamloops to face the Storm. Unlike the last game between these two teams (a 13-3 Kamloops win in early January), this game was much closer thanks to the work of Grizzlies goaltender Matthew Mitchell, who made 57 saves in a 5-1 loss. Cody Hendrickson scored the only goal for Revelstoke.

The Grizzlies take to the ice three times this week. They start things off on Thursday in Chase against the Heat. On Friday, the play the Eagles in Sicamous. On Saturday, the Heat come to Revelstoke to finish off the week.
