Warriors Feeling Good on Christmas Break

Back to back wins over Salmon Arm has team tied for third in BCHL Interior

The Westside Warriors wrapped up its pre Christmas schedule with a bonus Christmas present for its fans as the team swept a home and home series last weekend from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

And captain Alex Grieve was rewarded with a BCHL Player of the Week nod for helping the team head into the holiday break on the right foot.

Grieve, 20, set up the winning goal in a 6-4 comeback win on the road against the SilverBacks in Salmon Arm.

That night the Warriors scored six times in the third period to erase a 4-0 deficit. Kyle Singleton had a natural hat trick in the third while Tyler Brickler had a pair and Dru Morrison added a single in the comeback.

Grieve was back on the scoresheet the next night at Royal LePage Place when he had two goals and a helper in another 6-4 win over the Gorillas.

Grieve led the Warriors to three wins in four games last week and led BCHL scorers for the week with seven points including a pair of two-goal games.

The Calgary native scored at least one point in each of his team’s contests and factored in game star selections three times.

The Warriors leading point-getter, Grieve also cracked the top 10 in league scoring with his performance last week.

The pair of wins catapulted the Warriors into a tie with Salmon Arm for third place in the BCHL Interior Division with a 21-13-1-0 record.

The Warriors return to action for a pair of road games after Christmas. Westside plays in Trail on Dec. 28 before playing New Year’s Eve in Penticton against the Vees. The team’s next home game is Jan. 7 at Royal LePage Place against Vernon.
