The Revelstoke Grizzlies split their weekend games against the Kamloops Storm, with each team winning in their home barn.

On Saturday, two two squads faced off in Revelstoke. The teams traded goals early, with Wyatt Gottschalk potting one for Revelstoke 78 seconds into the game, only to see Zackari Andrusiak tie it up 26 seconds later. Kamloops controlled the play for most of the first period, hemming Revelstoke in their own zone and generating most of the scoring chances.

The tables turned in the second, and this time it was the Grizzlies’ turn to dominate. They outshot the Storm 25-5 in the period, but only had one goal to show for it, when Ryan Pereverzoff scored after a nice pass from Steven Fiust.

Revelstoke continued their strong play in the third. Ryan Hozjan made it 3-1 Grizzlies when he batted a shot home from in close 5:31 into the final frame. Andrusiak got Kamloops back within one before the period was halfway through, but goals from Fiust and Pereverzoff cemented the Grizzlies win.

Aidan Doak was in net for the win.

On Sunday, the teams played the rematch in Kamloops, with the Storm emerging with a convincing 3-1 win.

Andrusiak picked up where he left off Saturday, scoring twice for Kamloops, while Wyatt Gottschalk got Revelstoke’s lone goal, as the Storm outshot the Grizzlies 39-10 en route to victory. Michael Lenko stopped 36 shots in the Revelstoke net, but his effort wasn’t enough.

Revelstoke plays three times this week. They play the Chase Heat in Chase twice — first on Tuesday, and again on Friday. On Saturday, the Grizzlies host the Fernie Ghostriders.

Revelstoke is six points back of Chase, with two games in hand.
