Revelstoke Grizzlies face elimination after game three loss to 100 Mile House Wranglers

Revelstoke Grizzlies go down 3-0 to 100 Mile House Wranglers after losing game three 2-1 in overtime.

Steve Fiust (#8) tries to cut in front while Jeff Bochon (#7) crashes the net during the third period of the Revelstoke Grizzlies 2-1 loss to the 100 mile House Wranglers on Saturday at the Revelstoke Forum.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies will look to stave off elimination when they face the 100 Mile House Wranglers at the Revelstoke Forum on Sunday night.

The Wranglers topped the Grizzlies 2-1 in overtime to take a 3-0 stranglehold in the best-of-seven series.

Game three saw the teams take the ice in front of a packed house at the Revelstoke Forum on Saturday.

The Wranglers has the best chance to score in the first when they were awarded a two-minute 5-on-3 powerplay. The Grizzlies killed it off with some gutsy penalty killing and some big saves by Trevor Dilauro, keeping the game scoreless at the intermission.

The Grizzlies effort paid off when Wyatt Gottschalk tapped home a shot from in front to give Revelstoke a 1-0 lead four minutes into the second. Revelstoke attempted to hold off 100 Mile from there. Steven Fiust had the Grizzlie’s best chance to score when he busted in alone, but he was unable to put the puck past Wranglers’ goaltender Adam Derochie.

Jayson Gilding tied the game 6.5 minutes into the third period. Neither team was able to score the rest of the way through regulation, sending the game to overtime.

The team’s went back and forth in overtime, but the Wranglers came out on top when Tyler Povelofskie took advantage of a bad Grizzlies line change to break down the wing and fire the winner past Dilauro.

Game four is at the Forum on Sunday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m.
