Revelstoke Grizzlies follow losses to Chase Heat and Summerland Steam with win over Sicamous Eagles.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies snapped a four game losing streak with a win over the Sicamous Eagles at the Forum on Monday night.

Revelstoke beat the lowly Eagles 5-1, outshooting their opponents 52-17 in the process. Louie Federico scored twice and Ryan Pereverzoff, Jackson Caller and Kenny Batke also had goals in the win.

Before that, the Grizzlies lost twice on the weekend, falling to the Chase Heat and Summerland Steam.

On Friday, the Grizzlies played arguably their worst game of the season against the visiting Chase Heat.

The Heat pounced early, getting a goal from Tommy Brown less than two minutes into the game. Pat Brady made it 2-0 before the midway point of the first, and Michael Fidanza added a power play goal to put Chase up 3-0 before the period was over.

The second period was more evenly played, but the Heat emerged with the only goal.

Revelstoke finally got on the board at 13:07 of the third when Steven Fiust pounced on a loose puck in the slot. Any hopes of a comeback were dashed when Chase scored twice in 28 seconds near the midway point of the third period. Ullar Wiatzka scored with just over two minutes left to make the final score 6-2.

On Saturday, the Grizzlies headed south to the Okanagan to face the Summerland Steam. The Steam scored twice in the first period before Kyle Berry got Revelstoke on the board early in the second. Summerland would restore its two goal lead before the second was over, and added a power play goal midway through the third to send the Grizzlies back to their den with a 4-1 loss.

The Grizzlies haven’t beaten a team other than Sicamous since they topped the Chase Heat 3-2 on Jan. 9. They are 2-8-0-1 in that stretch.

The Grizzlies play the two top teams in their division this weekend. On Friday, they travel to Kamloops to face the Storm, while on Saturday they host the 100 Mile House Wranglers.

Bledsoe, a Super Bowl champion and four-time NFL all star, was in town heliskiing with friends last week. According to an article in Outside magazine, Bledsoe insured his multi-million dollar NFL contract so he could ski 20 days in the offseason while he was playing. Now he spends winters skiing and is a part-owner of Montana Ski Company, a boutique ski manufacturer. For the record, Bledsoe is better at throwing a football than a frisbee — he missed all four of his attempts. ~ By Alex Cooper, Revelstoke Review
