The West Kelowna Warriors will get another crack at the defending champs when the teams square off Friday in BCHL action.

The Warriors will take on the Penticton Vees in a 7 p.m. face off at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The Vees won the first meeting of the season, 4-1 on Sept. 19.

The Warriors will be at home on Saturday night to take on the Powell River Kings. Face off at Royal LePage Place is 7 p.m.

West Kelowna (5-3-0-1) is coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to the visiting Coquitlam Express on Tuesday night.

Charlie Barrow scored twice for the Express, including the winner in overtime, as he snapped a shot off the post past Warriors’ netminder Stpehen Heslop.

The Warriors controlled play in the second period, outshooting Coquitlam 19-5 and getting a pair of goals.

Garrett Forster tied the game up with his goal at 2:11, before Quin Foreman scored his first in the BCHL with a power play goal at 8:21.

Foreman, who was playing with recently added Lane Gilliss, and Reed Gunville, were what assistant coach Shae Naka called, “probably our best line tonight.”
