Express edges Warriors

Coquitlam scores in overtime in BCHL action Tuesday at Royal LePage

Charlie Barrow played hero for the Coquitlam Express in a 3-2 overtime victory over the West Kelowna Warriors in BCHL action on Tuesday night at Royal Lepage Place.

The Express opened the scoring in the 1st, as Colton Kerfoot picked a top corner with a wrister while on the man advantage.

The Warriors controlled play in the middle frame, out-shooting 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 1st in the BCHL with a great move in front at 8:21 on the power play.

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

Lawson Fenton stood tall in the Express net down 2-1 after Tyger Howat left with injury. Fenton would stop all 17 shots he faced in his 29:13 of action.

Barrow beat Stephen Heslop with a point shot through a screen in the 3rd to send the game to overtime.

It was Barrow once again who would win it, snapping one off the post and in to give the Express their 5th win of the year.

The Warriors drop to 5-3-0-1, and will take on the Penticton Vees at the SOEC on Friday at 7 PM, before returning home to face Powell River Saturday at Royal Lepage Place.
