The Revelstoke Grizzlies split its weekend games, defeating the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Friday before falling to the Kamloops Storm on Saturday.

The Grizzlies week kicked off on Friday when they hosted the 100 Mile House Wranglers at the Revelstoke Forum.

Aaron Brandoli recorded the shutout, turning aside 40 Wranglers’ shots, including several game savers in the third period.

Revelstoke’s penalty killing was on the mark all game, turning aside 11 Wrangler power plays throughout the game, including an extended 5-on-3 and a five-minute major early in the third period.

The game was scoreless until the 8:30 mark of the third period when Devon Hascarl scored his sixth goal of the season on a feed from Kyler Wilkinson.

Wilkinson put home an empty-netter with 25 seconds left to cement the win.

On Saturday, the Grizzlies travelled to Kamloops to face the league-leading Storm. Kamloops showed why they have the most points in the league, racking up a 5-0 lead before the Grizzlies got on the board with 2.5 minutes left in the game with a goal from Chad Thomas, assisted by Wilkinson and Hascarl.

Kamloops outshot Revelstoke 49-20 in the game.

Hascarl now has points on 13 of Revelstoke’s 16 goals this season.

The weekend results mean Revelstoke remains in the last place in the Doug Birks division, two points back of 100 Mile and Sicamous, with a game in hand.

This weekend Revelstoke hosts the Sicamous Eagles on Friday and then heads to 100 Mile for a pair of games against the Wranglers.
