Warriors see Vipers one more time

BCHL rivals will face off for the third time this week, Friday at

The West Kelowna Warriors and Vernon Vipers may have already had their fill of each other this week.

But the Okanagan rivals get to meet one more time before the BCHL regular season ends as they face off Friday night at Royal LePage Place. Game time is 7 p.m.

It will mark the third meeting between the Warriors and Vipers in a five-day span.

The Warriors came out on top of the first two installments this week, opening up with a 4-1 win on Tuesday afternoon in West Kelowna.

In a special 11 a.m. face off, the team’s anti-bullying game drew a crowd of more than 1,700, including 1,200 school students.

The teams met for the anti-bullying rematch Wednesday morning at Kal Tire Place with the Warriors winning 6-4.

Jonathan Desbiens scored his 42nd goal of the season in the win to set a new Warriors record for goals in a season, eclipsing the former mark set by Trevor Bailey.

The Warriors (36-17-2-1), who are closing in on a second-place finish in the Interior, will finish out the regular season against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Saturday, Feb. 26 at LePage.
