Storm’s Furious Comeback Falls Short

The Kamloops Storm chased the game all night and mounted a furious third period rally but in the end came out on the short end of a 6-5 loss to the Revelstoke Grizzlies Friday night. The Grizzlies jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead before Hudson Cameron cut into the deficit with his 6th of the season. Revelstoke restored the 2 goal lead before the end of the first period to make the score 3-1 after one. Kamloops came out firing in the second period as Harrison Ewert and Jayden Russell scored 44 seconds apart to tie the game at 3 just two minutes and fourteen seconds in to the frame. Kamloops ran into penalty trouble in the last half of the second and the Grizzlies potted three goals with two of them on the power play to take a 6-3 lead in to the dressing room. Once again Kamloops struck quickly with two goals just 3 minutes apart to make it a 6-5 game with four minutes left in the game where the Storm had some glorius chances to score but came up short. Harrison Ewert’s second of the game and Sam Lewis’ 8th of the season cut the margin in the third. Lewis also had 2 assists while Cameron added an assist as well. Colton Phillips-Watts stopped 20 of 26 shots in taking the loss. Cody Creasy stopped all 8 shots he faced in the third. Brandon Weare got the win in net stopping 18 of 23 shots on the night. The teams will play again Saturday night to finish the weekend home and home.
