Warriors’ Farkas BCHL player of the week

West Kelowna goalie backstops his team to victories over Powell River and Nanaimo

Shane Farkas stopped 76 shots in a pair of BCHL wins at home for the West Kelowna Warriors.

His stellar play on back-to-back nights has earned West Kelowna Warriors goaltender Shane Farkas BCHL player of the week honours.

Farkas, 17, has been outstanding for the Warriors over the month of December, posting five straight wins. Two of those victories over the past weekend against the Island Division’s Powell River Kings and Nanaimo Clippers.

The Penticton native made 35 saves on 36 shots in Friday night’s 6-1 victory over the Kings, then made 41 more in a 2-1 win on Saturday against the Clippers .

The Warriors have four straight wins heading into into the Christmas break.

“Shane has played a big role for our team this season,” said Warriors head coach and general manager Rylan Ferster. “To have the types of performances Shane has had and being just 17 years old, it’s a much deserving honour for him.”

The Warriors (17-16-0-1) return from the Christmas break with a home-and-home set against the Trail Smoke Eaters (16-17-0-3).

The teams face off Thursday, Dec. 30, 7 p.m. at Royal LePage Place.
