The Revelstoke Grizzlies losing streak hit 10 games after they lost two straight at home last weekend.

Revelstoke hosted the Osoyoos Coyotes on Saturday and the Princeton Posse on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Coyotes feasted on a Revelstoke team that was missing its two best players – captain and leading scorer Devon Hascarl and goalie Aaron Brandoli.

The result wasn’t pretty. Osoyoos fired 76 shots on backup Matthew Mitchell and put eight pucks past him. They scored four goals in the first period, three times in the second and once in the third period for the win. Four goals came on the power play.

Kohl Bell and Brodie Buhler scored for Revelstoke in the loss.

On Sunday, Hascarl and Brandoli returned to the Grizzlies lineup as they hosted the Posse, but the results were only slightly better. Kenny Batke got the Grizzlies on the board first, but the Posse responded with two goals of their own. Jay Adam scored his first KIJHL goal to even the score at 2-2 heading into the first intermission.

Princeton scored three times in the second period to blow the game open, getting goals at even strength, on the power play and shorthanded to take a 5-2 lead.

They extended their lead to 7-2 with two goals in the first half of the third period before Tre Mason and Jay Adam scored for Revelstoke to make the score closer. Princeton scored once more for an 8-4 final. Hascarl had three assists in the loss.

Revelstoke hosts the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Friday in their final game before the Christmas break.
