Warriors sweep ‘Backs, keep pace in Interior Division

West Kelowna on four-game B.C. Hockey League winning streak, at home Friday

With a four-game BCHL winning streak in tow, the West Kelowna Warriors will continue a four-game home-stand Friday night at Royal LePage Place.

In a 7 p.m. face off, the Warriors will take on the Merritt Centennials.

Then on Sunday afternoon at 2:30, the Nanaimo Clippers will make a stop in West Kelowna.

The Warriors are coming off a big two-game sweep of Interior Division rival Salmon Arm.

The victories have West Kelowna (11-5-0-2) to within a point of the ‘Backs (11-4-2-1) for second place in the division.

On Friday at the Shaw Centre, Jonathan Desbiens—on a draw won by Liam Blackburn—scored at 4:27 of overtime to pace the Warriors to a 5-4 win over the Silverbacks.

New netminder Keelan Williams made 31 saves in his Warriors debut for his first BCHL win.

On Saturday, Williams was at it again, making 33 stops and was named the game’s first star in a 3-1 Warriors’ victory over Salmon Arm at LePage.

The Warriors acquired Williams last week from the AJHL’s Camrose Kodiaks for forward Paul Lovsin.

Desbiens led the offense Saturday with a goal and an assist.

West Kelowna will wrap up its home-stand Friday, Nov. 13 against the first-place Penticton Vees.
