The Revelstoke Grizzlies sit on top of the Doug Birks Division after splitting their three games last week.

The Grizzlies tied the Chase Heat 2-2 last Wednesday, beat the Kamloops Storm 3-1 on Friday and lost to the 100 Mile House Wranglers 4-2 on Saturday.

On Wednesday, Derek Miskiman scored early in the first and Tyler Chavez Leech scored early in the third, but the Grizzlies saw a 2-1 lead erased with 24 seconds left in the game en route to a draw with the Heat.

Revelstoke outshot Chase 40-27 in the game.

On Friday, the Grizzlies were in Kamloops to face the Storm. Kyle Baron gave Revelstoke a 1-0 lead with a goal early in the first. Chavez Leech put Revelstoke up 3-0 with a pair of goals three minutes apart late in the third period. Michael Lenko made 34 saves in the Revelstoke net, but had his shutout bid ended with 65 seconds left in the game.

On Saturday, the Grizzlies headed north on Highway 97 to face the Wranglers. The home team scored twice in the first period to get an early 2-0 lead. They added to their lead in the second period before Zach Paxman got Revelstoke on the board. Miskiman score midway through the third period to make the 3-2, but 100 Mile responded 14 seconds later to restore their two goal lead en route to the 4-2 win.

The Grizzlies continue on the road this weekend with games against the Osoyoos Coyotes on Saturday and Kamloops Storm on Sunday. They don’t play at home until Saturday, Oct. 18.
