The 100 Mile House Wranglers split a pair of home games against the Revelstoke Grizzlies on Oct. 28-29.

Despite falling behind 2-1 at the second intermission on Friday, the Wranglers stormed back with a pair of power-play goals in the third period.

The home-town lads outshot the Grizzlies 30-20 in a game that featured good back-and-forth action much to the delight of the 532 fans in attendance.

Saturday night’s game was a chippy affair and the parade to the sin bin started less than a minute into the contest.

Power-play markers played a big role in the Wranglers’ scoring as four of its five goals came with the man-advantage. The 100 Mile House squad scored on four of 11 opportunities, while the visitors notched three of 13 power-play chances.

Revelstoke has a big team and they used their size to their advantage when they crashed the net and the boards.

Rob Raju popped a pair of goals for the Wranglers, while Grizzlies captain Tyler Chavez Leech scored a hat trick.
