The Revelstoke Grizzlies thumped the Chase Heat 5-1 in their only game last weekend.

Revelstoke was in Chase on Friday for the game against their divisional rivals. The teams entered the game separated by one point in the battle for fourth spot in the Doug Birks division.

Kieran Brunetti got Revelstoke on the board shortly before the midway point of the first, with Steven Fiust and Zach Morey assisting.

Josh Pilon added to Revelstoke’s lead about five minutes later, potting his ninth goal of the season, with helpers going to Louie Federico and Ethan Waitzner.

The Grizzlies kept piling it on, with Tyler Chavez Leech making it 3-0 Revelstoke before the opening frame was done. Fiust and Carter Huber picked up assists on the goal.

Chase got on the board on a power play 4:16 into the second period when Alex Durbeniuk put the puck past Revelstoke goalie Aiden Doak. Waitzner restored Revelstoke’s three goal lead before the period was over. Fiust and Nii Noi Tetteh picked up assists.

The third period was a scoreless affair until Leech made it 5-1 Revelstoke with 98 seconds left in the game, with help from Huber.

Doak made 33 saves in his first game of the season as Revelstoke outshot Chase 43-34.

The Grizzlies currently sit in fourth place in the Doug Birks division with 22 points – four points back of 100 Mile House and two points ahead of the Heat.

The Grizzlies play twice this weekend, with a road game against the North Okanagan Knights on Friday and a home encounter against 100 Mile on Saturday. On Tuesday, Revelstoke will reach the midway point of the season when it heads to Sicamous to face the Eagles.
