Losses Racking up as Warriors skid hits 9

Overtime loss the latest setback for team that returns home Wednesday

The Westside Warriors struggles continued as the B.C. Hockey League team dropped a pair of games on the road this weekend and have now lost nine straight games with the BCHL season now over one-third completed.

The Warriors earned a single point when it lost 5-4 in double overtime to Chilliwack on Saturday.

But despite holding a 3-1 lead after the first and a 4-3 lead after two periods, Westside couldn’t snap its losing streak in Chilliwack. On Friday Westside lost 6-3 in Langley and now sit at 7-10-0-4, sixth place in the eight team BCHL Interior.

Warriors defenceman Peter MacIntosh admits his team is rattled by the losing skid but he says his team is doing a lot of things well.

“It’s really frustrating, but we’ve just to keep working,” said the 20 year-old blueliner.  “It’s going to come, if we keep working as team.”

Shawn Hochhausen, Richard Vanderhoek, Travis Blanleil (SH), and Garrett Skrbich scored for the Warriors on Saturday in Chilliwack while  Blanleil, Tyler Krause and Izaak Berglund had Westside’s goals on Friday.

The Warriors have now dropped nine straight hockey games, while outshooting their opponents in the past eight.

“It’s coming,” said Richard Vanderhoek of the latest setback, adding “I feel we’re pretty unlucky right now. There’s a lot of pressure around here, and the boys are feeling it, but once we get than one [win], we’re going to go.”
