The Revelstoke Grizzlies continued to fight for their spot in the playoffs over the past week. They managed to pull off one win, but unfortunately lost two more.

The Grizzlies played host to the Kamloops storm last Tuesday. Although they were up 3-1 for part of the game, the Grizzlies couldn’t hang on to the win, and lost 6-3.

Kamloops opened the scoring at 15:24 in the first on a power play. Revelstoke tied it up shortly after when Michael Roberts scored, with assists from Brady Mende, and Louie Federico.

The Grizzlies came out strong in the second with a powerplay goal at 17:38 from Tyler Chavez Leech. Roberts, and Nii Noi Tetteh picked up assists on the goal. At 12:16, Mende put a third on the board for the Grizzlies, with help from Federico, and Zach Morey. Kamloops would then dominate the rest of the second, scoring five goals in a row. The Grizzlies tried to get back into the game in the third, but they couldn’t add any more, and lost 6-3.

Friday’s game was much more successful for the grizzlies, as they beat the Princeton Posse 4-0 on home ice.

Roberts got the Grizzlies on the board at 5:24 in the first, with assists from Zach Paxman, and Griffin Fried. They continued their run in the second with a goal at 13:40 from Jackson Fulton. Fried added another for the Grizzlies with only 36 seconds left in the second. Chavez Leech scored a fourth for Revelstoke at 16:52 in the third to cement the win for his team.

The Grizzlies travelled to Chase on Saturday, where they lost 3-2 against the Heat.

Wesley Matsuda got Chase on the board at 15:53 in the first. The Heat added two more in the second, giving themselves a comfortable three goal lead over Revelstoke going into the the third. The Grizzlies finally made it on the board with only 1:37 left in the game, when Ethan Waitzner scored with help from Mende. Roberts added a second for Revelstoke shortly after on a powerplay, but time ran out and the Grizzlies fell short 3-2.

The Grizzlies will be playing the Kelowna Chiefs at home on Tuesday, January, 27. This game was originally scheduled for earlier in the year, but was moved due to road closures. They have another home game on Friday against Summerland. Saturday they will be meeting the 100 Mile House Wranglers in Salmon Arm for a very important inner division match up. Revelstoke trails 100 Mile by eight points for the final playoff spot in the division, with only nine games left to play.
