The Westside Warriors wrapped up its pre Christmas schedule with a bonus Christmas present for its fans as the team swept a home and home series last weekend from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

And captain Alex Grieve was rewarded with a BCHL Player of the Week nod for helping the team head into the holiday break on the right foot.

Grieve, 20, set up the winning goal in a 6-4 comeback win on the road against the SilverBacks in Salmon Arm.

That night the Warriors scored six times in the third period to erase a 4-0 deficit. Kyle Singleton had a natural hat trick in the third while Tyler Brickler had a pair and Dru Morrison added a single in the comeback.

Grieve was back on the scoresheet the next night at Royal LePage Place when he had two goals and a helper in another 6-4 win over the Gorillas.

Grieve led the Warriors to three wins in four games last week and led BCHL scorers for the week with seven points including a pair of two-goal games.

The Calgary native scored at least one point in each of his team’s contests and factored in game star selections three times.

The Warriors leading point-getter, Grieve also cracked the top 10 in league scoring with his performance last week.

The pair of wins catapulted the Warriors into a tie with Salmon Arm for third place in the BCHL Interior Division with a 21-13-1-0 record.

The Warriors return to action for a pair of road games after Christmas. Westside plays in Trail on Dec. 28 before playing New Year’s Eve in Penticton against the Vees. The team’s next home game is Jan. 7 at Royal LePage Place against Vernon.
