On Friday night, the Summerland Steam played host to the Revelstoke Grizzlies and came away with a 7-2 win.

The scoring started early for the Steam, just eight seconds into the game, as Daylan Robertson took a pass from Paulsen Lautard on the right wing and roofed one over the shoulder of Grizzlies’ goaltender Matt Mitchell. It would be the first of three on the night for the captain, and Michael Winnitoy drew the second assist.

Just over two minutes later Reid Brown took a pass on a two on one  from Josh Dacosta and lifted the puck over Mitchell to bring the lead to 2-0 just shy of three minutes into the contest.

Lautard extended the lead to 3-0 after banking a puck off the goalie and in from the corner.

Still in the first, the Grizzlies got a goal on the power play from Kenny Batke before Robertson tallied his second of the night moving around a sprawling Matt Mitchell and slipping it into the back of the net. Braden Saretsky rounded out the first period scoring, bringing the score to 5-1 in favour of the Steam.

Jaxon Nohr replaced Mitchell for the second period, and was very good. The only goal allowed was with 24 seconds remaining in the period when Shane Bennett and Reid Brown found themselves on a two on one break that saw Brown finish after a good pass across from Bennett.

Sam Nigg drew the second assist on the goal and the Steam headed to the third with a 6-1 lead.

Nohr stopped 19 of the 20 shots he faced in the second period, but left with an injury and Matt Mitchell was back in the Revelstoke goal for the third.

In that third period, as tempers continued to flare, Steam captain Robertson completed his hat trick just 29 seconds into the period on a nice move across the net front.

Matt Lucero added another for Revelstoke to bring the score to 7-2 with just 1:29 to go in the hockey game.

Brett Huber started for the Steam against the Grizzlies and only faced 13 shots on the night in the 7-2 victory.
