October 6th vs Coquitlam PREVIEW

The West Kelowna Warriors play their 2nd of 7 Home games in the month of October tonight against the Coquitlam Express.

The Warriors are coming off a big victory, beating Wenatchee by a 4-2 margin and handing the Wild their first ever BCHL loss. The Express meanwhile, are coming off a busy weekend, which saw them go 1-1-1 against Victoria (W), Nanaimo (L), and Cowichan (T).

The trio of Jackson Cressey, Colton Kerfoot and Austin McIlmurray is the line to watch for the Express, as they've scored 64% of the teams goals, and have put up 37 points in the first 9 games.

Cressey is 3rd in league scoring, which is a familiar spot for Express forwards, as Corey Mackin and Brett Supinski ran the table last season, racking up 202 points between the two of them.

The Warriors will be looking to build on the momentum of Saturday's win, while the Express will look to move above .500.

Puck drop is 7 pm tonight, pre-game show on Fast Hockey or www.mixlr.com/bchlwarriors starts at 6:40.

We'll have an interview with alumni Tyler Briggs during the 1st intermission, and a September highlight package in the 2nd intermission. Talk to you tonight
