Warriors hit the road

West Kelowna will play next seven BCHL games away from home, beginning Friday at Cowichan Valley

Moving ever close to clinching a BCHL playoff berth, the West Kelowna Warriors will head out on the road this weekend for three games in as many nights.

The Warriors will open in Cowichan Valley on Friday, followed by a visit to Powell River on Saturday, before closing out the weekend tour on Sunday night in Chilliwack.

The Warriors will play their next seven games away from home.

West Kelowna (27-16-2-1) is currently in second spot in the Interior Division, two points up on Salmon Arm and 14 clear of the Vernon Vipers.

With Trail in fifth place, 17 points back, any combination of Warriors wins and Smoke Eaters losses equalling three would send West Kelowna to the postseason.

The Warriors took a step in that direction with a decisive 8-1 win over Trail on Tuesday night at Royal LePage Place.

Brett Mennear paced the Warriors attack with two goals and an assist, while Jake Harrison and Kylar Hope each chipped in with a goal and three assists.

Matthew Greenfield played the first two periods in goal for the Warriors, before Shane Farkas made his BCHL debut in the third period.

The 16-year-old, who plays at Okanagan Hockey Academy in Penticton, stopped all 17 shots he faced over the final 20 minutes.

The Warriors won’t be back home until Feb. 12 when they host the Langley Rivermen.
