West Kelowna drops 3-2 decision Tuesday to visiting Coquitlam

The West Kelowna Warriors will get another crack at the defending champs when the teams square off Friday in BCHL action.

The Warriors will take on the Penticton Vees in a 7 p.m. face off at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The Vees won the first meeting of the season, 4-1 on Sept. 19.

The Warriors will be at home on Saturday night to take on the Powell River Kings. Face off at Royal LePage Place is 7 p.m.

West Kelowna (5-3-0-1) is coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to the visiting Coquitlam Express on Tuesday night.

Charlie Barrow scored twice for the Express, including the winner in overtime, as he snapped a shot off the post past Warriors’ netminder Stpehen Heslop.

The Warriors controlled play in the second period, outshooting 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 first in the BCHL with a power play goal at 8:21.

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