The Revelstoke Grizzlies dropped both of its games on the weekend, falling on the road to the Osoyoos Coyotes and Kamloops Storm.

On Saturday the Grizzlies were in Osoyoos to take on the undefeated Coyotes. The game was a back-and-forth affair with the teams trading goals until Osoyoos took the lead for good late in the second period.

Josh Pilon scored his first KIJHL goal at 13:17 of the first to open the scoring, but Drew Carter scored for Osoyoos less than two minutes later to tie the game.

In the second, the teams traded goals. Aaron Azevedo scored for Osoyoos, with Riley Creighton responding for Revelstoke in his first game of the season. Osoyoos would take the lead once more, but Griffin Fried was able to tie things up for Revelstoke a few minutes later.

A power play goal by Troy Maclise with 67 seconds left in the period put Osoyoos up for good. Azevedo made it 5-3 with four minutes left in the third and the Coyotes added an empty netter for a 6-3 win.

On Sunday it was time for a match against the Kamloops Storm in a game where Kamloops jumped out to an early lead and didn’t let up.

Brayden Dale opened the scoring 65 seconds into the game to give Kamloops a one goal lead. The home team added two more goals by the end of the period, then two more in the second to take a commanding 5-0 lead into the third period. They made it 6-0 only 13 seconds into the third period.

Carter Huber scored mid-way through the third to get Revelstoke on the board and break the Storm shutout. The final score was 6-1.

The losses give Revelstoke a 4-4-1 record on the season, still good for second in the division.

This weekend the Grizzlies head south for a three game road trip against the Spokane Braves, Castlegar Rebels and Grand Forks Border Bruins.

Their next home game is Saturday, Oct. 18, against the Nelson Leafs.
