Warriors run BCHL winning streak to six

Jordan Masters scores a pair as West Kelowna records win on Trail Saturday

Make it six straight wins and counting for the BCHL’s West Kelowna Warriors.

Jordan Masters scored twice as the Warriors downed the hometown Smoke Eaters 5-3 Saturday night in Trail.

Liam Blackburn’s third period goal stood up as the winner, while veteran goaltender Andy  Desautels stopped 24 shots for his sixth win in a row.

The Warriors led 3-2 after two periods, then managed to hold off a frantic push by Trail in the third.

“They came hard,” said Desautels. “We just stood our ground, and made sure we got pucks out and pucks deep.”

The Saskatchewan native added he`s excited for the promise the Warriors are showing early in the season. “Everything`s going right right now,” Desautels said. “We`ve got a lot of skill, but our skill is working hard. We`re going to be tough to play against every night.“

Jason Cotton and David Pope also tallied for the Warriors, now 6-2-0 on the season.

This coming weekend, the Warriors are back on the road for a three-game coastal trip, with stops in Powell River, Nanaimo and Cowichan Valley.
