The Revelstoke Grizzlies split its two games last week, falling to the Sicamous Eagles before defeating the Princeton Posse.

Revelstoke was in Sicamous on Tuesday, Nov. 25, to take on the Eagles in a key division match up. It was the Eagles that got the early jump, when Samuel Subert scored almost five minutes into the game.

Sicamous added to its lead in the second, getting goals from Ben Campbell and Nicholas Cuglietta before the period was eight minutes old.

Tyler Chavez Leech responded for the Grizzlies with 6:10 left in the second, scoring a power play goal with assists from Kyle Baron and Jackson Fulton. Carter Hansen restored the Eagles three goal lead before the period was over.

Revelstoke mounted a comeback in the third. Zach Paxman got the Grizzlies back within two less than two minutes into the period. Then, at 6:49, Steven Fiust scored on the power play to make it 4-3. That was the end of the scoring as the Eagles flew away with the win.

On Friday, the Grizzlies made the long drive to Princeton to face the Posse. Princeton got on the board first when Eden Dubchak scored a powerplay goal.

Revelstoke would tie the game 4:30 into the second when Fiust scored his 10th goal of the season with an assist from Paxman.

The teams remained tied at one until late in the third period when Louie Federico set up Josh Pilon for the game winner.

Michael Lenko made 26 saves in net for the win.

The Grizzlies play three road games this week. On Thursday, they face the Chase Heat, who are only two points back of Revelstoke in the standings.
