The Westside Warriors will look to end a two-game BCHL losing skid when they return to home ice this weekend.

The Warriors will host the Salmon Arm SilverBacks Friday, while the Quesnel Millionaires come calling on Saturday.

Face off both nights at Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna is 7 p.m.

The Warriors closed out a three-game road trip Tuesday night in Prince George with a 5-4 double overtime loss to the Spruce Kings.

Westside overcame a 4-1 deficit with three unanswered goals in the third period to force extra time.

After a scoreless first overtime, Todd Skirving scored for the Spruce Kings just 15 seconds into the second O.T. frame to settle the issue.

Max French, Grayson Downing with his 29th, Tyler Brickler and Dru Morrison scored for the Warriors.

With just 11 games remaining in the regular season, Westside (25-18-2-4) sits fifth in the Interior Division, three points back of the Trail Smoke Eaters and four back of third-place Salmon Arm.

Following this weekend’s mini-homestand, the Warriors will visit Trail on Tuesday, Feb. 1.

Chiefs host Kamloops…

Following a six-day break, the Kelowna Chiefs will play the last of five straight road games when they return to KIJHL action Saturday night in Grand Forks against the Border Bruins.

Then on Sunday, the Chiefs will be back at home to take on the Kamloops Storm in a 6 p.m. face off at Rutland Arena.

Kelowna (21-19-1-2) leads the Storm by a point for third overall in the Okanagan Shuswap Conference.
