Revelstoke Grizzlies go undefeated on weekend

Revelstoke Grizzlies beat Chase Heat twice, tie Sicamous Eagles in weekend action.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies enjoyed their best weekend of the season, with back-to-back wins over the Chase Heat followed by a tie against the Sicamous Eagles.

On Friday, the Grizzlies travelled to Chase to start it’s weekend against the Heat. Taylor Jordan got Chase on the board first, scoring at 13:21 of the first. Revelstoke responded with two goals before the period was done. First, Brayden Beckley was set up by Austin Donaldson on the power play at 4:17, before Donaldson scored one himself with 15 seconds to go in the frame.

Conner Venne tied the game for Chase with a power play goal at 7:41 of the second, assisted by Shayne Woodland and Revelstoke product Aiden Silzer-Hooker. Once again, Revelstoke responded, with two goals late in the period from Tyler Reay and Dylan Ossman.

Spencer Samuel made it 5-2 Revelstoke just over two minutes into the third period. The game would end 5-3. Aaron Brandoli made 28 saves in the win.

On Saturday, both teams faced off again in Revelstoke. Ossman scored twice and Conrad McMillan made 33 saves in a 4-0 Grizzlies win.

Ossman got Revelstoke on the board at 4:17 of the first when he was set up by Donaldson. Samuel made it 2-0 five minutes into the second when Devon Hascarl set him up in front for a goal. Donaldson and Ossman combined again with six seconds left in the second to make it 3-0.

Hascarl would cement Revelstoke’s win with a great individual effort only 51 seconds into the third. He beat a Chase defenceman wide before roofing a backhand over the blocker of Chase goalie Jacob Mattes.

McMillan stood tall in nets, flashing a great glove hand to preserve his shutout and his first win of the season.

On Sunday, the Grizzlies went to Sicamous for an afternoon tilt against the Eagles. The teams had played three one-goal games already this year and Sunday was no exception. Beckley and Reay scored 50 seconds apart late in the first period to give Revelstoke a 2-0 lead after one.

Following a scoreless second, the Eagles equalled the score with goals from Nicholas Astasiewicz and Matt Reed in the third.

Overtime solved nothing and Revelstoke returned home with a 2-2 draw.

This weekend the Grizzlies travel to Osoyoos to take on the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference leading Coyotes. The team’s next home game is Friday, Oct. 26, against the Coyotes.
