Oct 31st vs. Salmon Arm PREVIEW

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks and West Kelowna Warriors play once again tonight, this time at Royal Lepage Place on Halloween night.

If last night was any indication, these two teams will play at a high pace, with a lot of physical play. It will be interesting to watch the first 10 minutes and see if the officials set the tone for the night. There was a lot of special teams play last night, ad we'll see if that is the case once again.

The Warriors moved to within 3 points of Salmon Arm for 2nd place in the Interior, as they continue to make their push. The biggest key for West Kelowna moving forward is to continue putting up points, especially against teams below them in the standings. As the teams in the interior know from last season, it can be a single point that decides things at the end.

We'll see what tonight brings! Bring the kids down for some candy and if you dress up, you get in free. If you can't make it, tune in at
