The Revelstoke Forum was buzzing for the Grizzlies’ debut in the tournament.

Oceanside got off to a hot start with a quick goal from Evan Dyce to put the team from the island ahead 1-0.

Minutes later, the hosts would respond with a goal of their own. Revelstoke forward Brady Schwab found the back of the net from Will McPhee and Luke Aston to send the Grizzlies fans into pandemonium and belt out their first ‘Hey Baby’ of the Cyclone Taylor Cup.

Unfortunately for the home fans, the Oceanside Generals scored a clutch goal with less than a second left in the opening frame through Ethan Hawes to take the 2-1 lead before the break.

It was a tight-checking contest through the second period until Oceanside forward Carter Johnson extended the General’s lead to 3-1.

Oceanside added two goals in the third period to finish the game 5-1.

The Grizzlies take to the ice again tonight (April 14) in a KIJHL rivalry match-up against the Kimberly Dynamiters. Puck drops at 7 p.m.

The Oceanside Generals will be back in action this afternoon to take on the Delta Ice Hawks at 1 p.m.
