Warriors get split with Wild in Wenatchee

West Kelowna wins in overtime Friday in BCHL action, then is shutout Saturday

The West Kelowna Warriors witnessed the end of a three-game losing streak but still returned home from Washington with a split against a key Interior Division rival.

On Friday night in Wenatchee, the Warriors prevailed 5-4 over the Wild in overtime. RJ Murphy’s second goal of the game at 40 seconds of the extra period on a set up from newly-acquired Ryan Steele proved to be the winner. Nik Amundrud made 40 saves in the West Kelowna net.

On Saturday, Wenatchee bounced back with a 6-0 win, outshooting the Warriors 32-15 who played the last of five straights games on the road.

The Warriors (21-19-1-1) sit in fifth spot in the Interior Division.

West Kelowna will return to action at home on Tuesday night against the Vernon Vipers. Face off at Royal LePage Place is 7 p.m.
