Knights finally solve Grizzlies

It took them 12 tries, but the North Okanagan Knights finally have a Kootenay International Hockey League win over the Revelstoke Grizzlies.

In a must-win game, second star Zachary Lindsay fired the overtime winner as the Knights brushed back the Grizz 4-3 in Game 4 of their best-of-seven series Friday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong.

The Grizzlies hold a 3-1 series lead heading into tonight’s Game 5 at the Revelstoke Forum. If necessary, Game 6 would go Monday (7 p.m.) at Nor-Val, with Game 7 Tuesday in Revelstoke.

The Grizzlies earned a quick lead on goals by Bruce Silvera and TJ Christensen, but North Okanagan responded with unanswered markers by first star Colin Minardi, Tanner Burns and Patrick Chore.

Silvera (third star) forced OT with 27 seconds to play.

Knights’ netminder Chris Solecki made 29 stops for the win. Tory Caldwell recorded 24 saves for the Grizzlies.
