Jessie Fowlie breaks in for a scoring chance against the Nicola Valley Thunder at the Revelstoke Forum on Saturday. Fowlie didn’t score on this chance but he did score in the third period. The Revelstoke Roughnecks’ captain will be trying out for the Zone 2 Midget Team for the BC Summer Games.

The Roughnecks played their first home game against Nicola Valley on Saturday. This was the Roughnecks’ fifth game of their twelve-game season.

Each game played has been a loss, but with every practice and game the players skill level grows.

The team was able to muster two goals in the match with Nicola Valley. Kyler Lenzi got the first goal and Jessie Fowlie got the second goal. Dawson Hill, who played goal for this game, got an assist in the second goal for Revelstoke.

The Roughnecks were short five players, which shortened their bench considerably. The players played hard getting 14 minutes in penalties, but did not give up until the final buzzer.

The experience level of our players range from being their first year to having played six years.

Three players from Revelstoke have applied to try out for the Zone 2 Midget team for the BC Summer Games – Curtis Magarian, Kellen Viznaugh and Jessie Fowlie hope to be chosen for this team.

Our next home games are on May 13 at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. We appreciate the turnout for our first home game and would like to see more spectator support for these young boys.
