Warriors look for payback against Trail

West Kelowna hosts Smoke Eaters Tuesday in BCHL action, following 7-3 Trail win on Sunday

The West Kelowna Warriors will get another crack at the Trail Smoke Eaters when the teams face off Tuesday in BCHL action at Royal LePage Place. Game time is 7 p.m.

The Warriors fell 7-3 to the Smoke Eaters on Sunday night in Trail.

Without its top two goaltenders, Andy Desautels and Scott Patton, the Warriors had to call on Mike Lemko for the third time this season.

Lemko, 17, who plays with the KIJHL’s Revelstoke Grizzlies, stopped 21 of 28 shots.

Kyler Marino, Jason Cotton and Kylar Hope scored for the Warriors, who have lost three straight.

Desautels has been sidelined since Dec. 20 after undergoing an appendectomy, while Patton has been out since prior to Christmas with a lower body injury.

The Warriors’ first game of the new year is Friday in Salmon Arm.
