Revelstoke Grizzlies losing streak continues on road

The Revelstoke Grizzlies losing streak reached eight games after they lost three straight matches over the weekend.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies losing streak reached eight games after they lost three straight matches over the weekend.

Revelstoke fell 4-3 to the Sicamous Eagles, and then 8-1 and 6-0 to the 100 Mile House Wranglers in a busy weekend on the road.

Friday’s game was the toughest loss as the Grizzlies managed to build up a 3-1 lead thanks to goals from Devon Hascarl, John Jamieson and Ethan Larson.

A late-second period goal by Stephen Hawco got the Eagles within one and Riley Jepson scored 89 seconds into the third period to tie the game.

From there, the teams went into a standstill until Hawco scored his second goal of the game in double-overtime to give Sicamous a 4-3 win.

Aaron Brandoli made 53 saves for the Grizzlies in the loss.

The rest of the weekend was spent in 100 Mile House as the Grizzlies were there for two road games on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, Connor Sloan got 100 Mile on the board first but Hascarl tied it up for the Grizzlies not long after. After that it was all 100 Mile, as they scored three more times in the first period, once in the second, and three more in the third to run away with an 8-1 win.

Sunday saw the Grizzlies slide continue. The Wranglers scored twice in each period as they more than doubled Revelstoke in shots in a 6-0 win.

With the losses the Grizzlies have fallen into last place overall in the KIJHL and they are now nine points out of a playoff spot.

To make matters worse, two of their top forwards – Matt MacDonald and Kyler Wilkinson – have moved on to greener pastures.

The Grizzlies will look to reverse their slide this weekend when they host the Osoyoos Coyotes on Saturday and Princeton Posse on Sunday.
