Grizzlies beat Rockies

The Columbia Valley Rockies’ quest for success came to an abrupt end last weekend.

The Columbia Valley Rockies’ quest for success came to an abrupt end last weekend.

At the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena on Saturday, September 19th, the Columbia Valley Rockies dropped 7-4 against the Revelstoke Grizzlies.

“We’re still creating an identity as a group,” said Wade Dubielewicz, Rockies head coach. “We won last night and felt pretty good about ourselves. You see that a lot in new teams. They come out the next night, thinking that they can just show up and you end up getting your butts handed to you.”

The Rockies did most of their scoring in the second period, garnering a total of three goals then. During the third, the Rockies added one more goal to the board, but could not come back from a loss against the Grizzlies.

The Rockies rank 4-1-3 in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) standings at this point, but Mr. Dubielewicz is still holding out hope for improvements from the team this season.

“The first part of the season is going to be about learning about our team, and how we respond to those kind of lessons,” he said.

The next Rockies games will be away against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in Fruitvale on September 25th before competing against the Creston Valley Thundercats on September 26th.

The Rockies will play at home again against the 100 Mile House Wranglers at 1 p.m. in Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena on September 27th.
