Warriors home for two this weekend

West Kelowna takes 4-1 BCHL record in against Merritt Friday night at LePage

The West Kelowna Warriors will be in their own domain this weekend for a pair of BCHL games.

On Saturday at Royal LePage Place, the Warriors will take on the Merritt Centennials in a 7 p.m. face off.

Then in a Sunday matinee, West Kelowna will face the Cowichan Valley Capitals. Game time is 2:30 p.m.

The Warriors (4-1-0) are coming off a 6-5 overtime road victory over the Coquitlam Express Tuesday night.

Brett Mennear connected for the game winner at 3:40 of the second extra period.

Jonathan Desbiens scored twice for the Warriors who twice came back from two-goal deficits.

Jordan Masters added three assists and Liam Blackburn had three helpers as West Kelowna outshot the Express 51-29.

Meanwhile, the Warriors this week acquired left winger Michael Buonincontri from the Whitby Fury of the OJHL in exchange for forward Dante Hahn.

Last season, Buonincontri put up 17 goals and 18 assists in 43 games between the USHL’s Sioux Falls Stampede and the CCHL’s Smiths Falls Bears. He was acquired in the off-season by the Prince George Spruce Kings of the BCHL, who then dealt him to Whitby following the Bauer BCHL Showcase.

The Warriors acquired Hahn in the off-season from the Victoria Grizzlies in exchange for future considerations. He had three points in the first four games this season, his third in the BCHL.  Hahn played in his 100th BCHL game at the Showcase in Chilliwack on Sept. 21.
