The Revelstoke Grizzlies started their three game weekend on Halloween night taking on the Chase Heat. They had a strong start, scoring the first goal at 1:39 on the first period. The credit for that went to Louis Federico with the assist going to Ryan Hozjan and Josh Pilon.

The Grizz carried this score in to the until mid second period when Tristan Simm with the assist from Zach Morey and Steven Fiust got another goal. The Grizz once again carried their lead in to the third but this time Chase narrowed the score at 16:30. The Grizzlies responded with putting another puck in the net care of Zach Paxman and Tyler Chavez Leech.

Chase was soon on the power play and at 4:08 put one in the back of the net followed by another goal with an empty net and an extra player. This sent the teams in to which would eventually be double overtime and a 4-3 win for Chase.

The next day the Grizz travelled to Kamloops which had a better outcome. Louis Federico scored their first goal at 15:42 in the 1st period. They quickly got another goal at the hands of Steven Fiust and Riley Creighton at 11:59. Going in to the second Kamloops managed to tie things up but a goal from Nii Noi Tetteh assisted Tristan Simm ensured their lead. Kamloops countered and for the second night in a row the team landed themselves into two overtime battles, where they took their first win of the weekend.

Sunday the Grizzlies moved on to Summerland. The first period ended without any goals but with many penalties killed. Summerland took first blood in the second but Riley Creighton and Steve Fiust countered at 15:06. The teams took turns scoring but thanks to the goals by Kyle Baron at 3:18 and Kenny Batke with 16 seconds left in the period, the Grizz managed to go in to the 3rd with a 3-2 lead which eventually would be the final score of the game.

The stars of the games were announced as Jackson Fulton for Fridays game, Josh Pilon for the Saturday game and Kyle Baron for Sunday.

The win against Summerland gained the Grizzlies 5 out of a possible 6 point this weekend.
