The Sicamous Novice Predators travelled to Revelstoke  on Saturday, Feb. 11 to tangle with the Revelstoke Jr. Grizzlies.

The Predators came out flat against Revelstoke and could not get any offence going and ended up being shut out 4-0.

Despite carrying the play in the Revelstoke end for large parts of the game, the Predators only had a couple of shots hitting the goalpost to show for their efforts. Strong games by Garrett Dale and Ali Logan resulted in scoring chances, but no goals.

On Sunday, Feb. 12, the Chase Chiefs came to the Sicamous Arena to play the Predators in a rematch of the championship game of the Chase Novice Tournament.

After a tight-checking, scoreless opening period, the Predator offence came alive. Alex Dunnett opened the scoring on a nice pass from Dylan Peter early in the second period. Two minutes later Dunnett scored again, assisted again by Peter to make the score 2-0 for Sicamous. Shortly after that, Ali Logan scored, assisted by Sidney Watson and Daphne Miller. Then Jacob Dewitt scored the first of his three goals, assisted by Noah Sutherland and Daryan St. Louis. Late in the period Jacob Dewitt scored again, assisted by Sidney Watson, to make the score 5-0  for Sicamous after two periods.

Chase started strong in the third period, trying to get back into the game by applying pressure on the Sicamous goal. Sicamous goalie Korbin Forsyth stood tall, making several great saves until Chase finally broke his shutout and scored to make the score 5-1. Shortly after, Sicamous forward Peter scored, assisted by Jacob Dewitt, to restore the five goal lead. Then Jacob Dewitt scored his third goal to record the hat trick. Predator defencemen Scott Rokosh and Colton Fleming had a great day, shutting down the Chase offense and frustrating the Chase forwards. Final score: 7-1 for Sicamous.

The Novice Predators would like to thank all the people who came to watch their game and cheer the team on. The next home game is Sunday, Feb. 19 at 10:45 a.m. versus North Okanagan at the Sicamous Arena.
