Oct 16th vs Salmon Arm PREVIEW

The West Kelowna Warriors will look for 2nd place in the BCHL Interior tonight as they take on the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. The two teams are currently tied with 14 points.

The Warriors are coming off a win over the Powell River Kings on Saturday night, when Stephen Heslop picked up his first shutout of the season.

Streaks were continued as well, as Jonathan Desbiens and Garrett Forster each now have a 9-game point streak, and Liam Blackburn’s now sits at 8.

It will be a tough test for the Warriors tonight, as Angus Redmond has been good to start the season, posting a 2.26 GAA in 10 games.

The Silverbacks haven’t played a lot on the road so far, just 1 game outside of the BCHL Showcase, so the Warriors will look to put their hot home start to good use in this one.

Don’t miss tomorrow’s action either, as the Prince George Spruce Kings come into town to take on the Warriors with Wrestler Jimmy “Mouth of the South” Hart in attendance.
