Warriors set four home and home this coming weekend

West Kelowna picks up three out of four points this past weekend to climb over 500

The West Kelowna Warriors and Langley Rivermen will hook up for the first time in the 2012-13 BCHL season with a home-and-home set this weekend.

On Friday night, the clubs will face off at the Langley Events Centre before heading to West Kelowna on Saturday for a 7 p.m. face off at Royal Le Page Place.

The Warriors picked up three of a possible four points over the weekend to push their season record to 4-2-0-3.

On Saturday, the Warriors fell just shy of a weekend sweep dropping a 2-1 decision in overtime to the hometown Vernon Vipers.

Colton Sparrow scored the game winner at 4:11 of the extra period.

Seb Lloyd counted the Warriors’ lone goal early in the second frame, his fifth of the season.

After the game, a frustrated Lloyd admits the finishing touch eluded his club, but says it wasn’t for a lack of chances or effort by his club.

“I think we’re really happy with the way we played defensively,” Lloyd said. “Even offensively, we’re happy with the way we played…it was just a matter of the puck not finding the back of the net.”

On Friday night, the hometown Warriors knocked down the Trail SmokeEaters 6-0.

Brennan Clark scored twice and Brent Lashuk added a goal and two assists to support the shutout goaltending of Tyler Briggs who made 20 saves.

The game’s first star, Matt Anholt, scored shorthanded and added a pair of assists, while Josh Monk was steady on the back end with three assists.
