The Warriors fell in overtime last night, while the Kings won their 7th straight game in overtime against the Coquitlam Express.
West Kelowna will need to try and create a lot of traffic in front of the Powell River net, as both goaltenders have solid numbers to begin this season. The 20 goals allowed is tied for 2nd fewest in the BCHL through the first 5 weeks of the season.
Special Teams were key once again on Friday in Penticton, with the Vees and Warriors each scoring once. West Kelowna's PK was the star that probably earned them a single point last night, killing off 6 straight minutes in the second half of the 3rd period.
Overall, the Warriors should be happy with their effort against the Vees in last nights game, and be pushing to find a little bit more tonight against the Kings. Expect a good one once again. This Warriors team is fun to watch, and they showed that throughout last night's game as well.
