Warriors visit ‘Backs

The Westside Warriors look to break a two-game BCHL losing streak Friday night when they visit the Salmon Arm SilverBacks.

It’s the first of three straight games on the road for the Warriors who visit Langley Saturday and Prince George next Tuesday.

Westside is coming off a 3-2 home-ice loss to the Powell River Kings Tuesday at LePage.

Brett McKinnon and Tom Kroshus scored to give the Warriors a 2-1 lead heading into the third. The Kings scored twice in the final frame—both the result of unlucky bounces for Westside—to steal the two points.

“I thought we played pretty well,” said Warriors coach Darren Yopyk. “I’m happy with the guys and obviously they’re disappointed in losing. When you play that hard and don’t get rewarded it’s frustrating.”

The Warriors were without forward Max French who was serving the first of a two-game suspension for a hit to the head in Merritt Saturday.

Injured defenceman Matt Cronin and forward Brett Mulcahy also missed Tuesday’s game.

The Warriors next home action is Friday, Jan. 28 against Salmon Arm.
