The Westside Warriors look to move a step closer to the Trail Smoke Eaters when the teams finish off a home-and-home series Saturday night in B.C. Hockey League action.

Face off is 7 p.m. at Royal LePage Place.

The Warriors (27-19-2-4) are to within four points of the fourth-place Smokies (30-20-2-2)—with two games in hand—in the Interior Conference after posting a 4-1 win Tuesday night in Trail.

Alex Grieve, Kyle Singleton and Matthew Maher each had a goal and an assist for Westside, while Tyler French scored the other goal.

Kevin Boyle stopped 29 of 30 shots in the Warriors net.

Following Saturday’s game, Westside seven games remaining in the BCHL regular season, three at home and four on the road.
