Warriors push for playoff berth

After tough road trip, West Kelowna looks to strengthen position in tough Interior Division of BCHL

With points at a premium in the BCHL’s Interior Division, the West Kelowna Warriors’ push for a playoff spot has come down to the final 11 games of the regular season.

Heading into a key weekend doubleheader with Merritt, the Warriors and Centennials are tied for third spot with 50 points each, while Salmon Arm is four points back in fifth spot. The Cents have three games in hand on West Kelowna, while the Silverbacks have two.

In the end, just four teams will make the post-season, leaving one of these three teams out of the picture.

The Warriors and Cents will square off Friday at Nicola Valley Arena in Merritt, then again Saturday at Royal LePage Place. Face off is 7 p.m.

The Warriors didn’t do themselves any favours last weekend, managing just a single point on a three-game road trip.

West Kelowna lost 5-1 at Alberni Valley on Friday, then 2-1 in overtime to Powell River Saturday

On Sunday, after a difficult day of travel that included missed ferries due to the tide, the Warriors fell short against the BCHL’s last-place team, losing 5-4 to the Surrey Eagles.
