Westside's Isaak Berglund sends a pass across the ice in BCHL action against Cowichan Valley Sunday at Royal LePage Place.

Captain paces Warriors

It was a classic case of a captain leading by example.

Alex Grieve registered nine points over the weekend to lead the Westside Warriors to back-to-back B.C. Hockey League wins on home ice.

The 20-year-old Calgary product had a goal and four assists Saturday at LePage as the Warriors drubbed the Trail Smoke Eaters 9-1.

On Sunday afternoon, Grieve tallied a hat-trick and one assist as Westside downed the Cowichan Valley Capitals 5-2.

Grieve now has four goals and 15 points on the season to lead the Warriors in scoring.

The 14-goal weekend outburst by the team also helped the Warriors snap out of an early season offensive funk which saw them averaging just 2 1/2 goals through their first eight games.

Kyle Singleton and Dru Morrison scored twice each in the win over the Caps, while Grayson Downing chipped in with a goal and two assists.

Sunday’s game also featured goalie Kevin Boyle’s first win of the season after four losses to start the year.

The victories push the Warriors season record to 5-4-1-0 as they prepare for a weekend home-and-away set against the defending national junior A champions.

The Warriors and Vipers will meet Friday at Royal LePage Place, then again Saturday for the rematch at Wesbild Centre in Vernon.
