Revelstoke Grizzlies defeat North Okanagan Knights to stay in first

The Revelstoke Grizzlies defeated the North Okanagan Knights 4-3 on Friday. The team needs one win in its final two games to secure first.

Riley Spraggs scored the game winning goal and Conrad McMillan made 36 saves as the Revelstoke Grizzlies defeated the North Okanagan Knights 4-3 at the Forum on Friday.

Revelstoke got on the board early when Spraggs set up Kyle Schwartz for a goal less than a minute into the first period.

Braeden Monk made it 2-0 just over a minute later but the Knights’s Eric Chore scored a power play goal with under three minutes left in the period to make it 2-1 after one.

Revelstoke extended its lead to 4-1 in the second period. First, TJ Christensen scored on a scramble in front and then Spraggs scored on a beautiful end-to-end rush midway through the frame.

The Knights, still hoping to catch Revelstoke for first, responded with a goal by Ben Greenaway with 6:22 left in the first. They made it 4-3 when Josh Klein scored just over four minutes into the third period.

After that, the Knights pushed and Revelstoke bent but didn’t break. McMillan made 14 saves in the final period to secure the win for the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies close out the season with a home-and-home series against the Sicamous Eagles on Saturday in Sicamous and Sunday at 2 p.m. at home. Revelstoke needs to win one game to clinch top spot in the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference.
