September 15th vs Trail PREVIEW

The West Kelowna Warriors return home to Royal Lepage Place tonight with a 1-1 record after a split with the Merritt Centennials on opening weekend.

Each team held serve in their own Home Opener, as the Warriors got 3 power-play goals Friday night to come back and win 6-4; then Merritt scored with 2:23 remaining Saturday night to squeak out a 5-4 victory.

The Warriors got a pair of goals from Rylan Yaremko and Brett Mennear on the opening weekend, while 6 other players scored once, including the first BCHL markers for Paul Lovsin, Jake Harrison, and Jake Tesarowski.

The Warriors would out-shoot the Centennials in both games, and out-chance them by a 46-22 margin.

The Trail Smoke Eaters split their opening series with the Vernon Vipers as well, except they won on the road in Vernon on Friday, before dropping Saturday night`s decision.

Leading the way for the Smokies was Kurt Black with a goal and three assists, while Rhett Willcox had a pair of goals Friday.

It's Rylan Yaremko's birthday, and the bruising now 19 year old from Alberta will be looking to set the tone as always.
