West Kelowna earned a split of games on home ice over the weekend, opening with a 4-3 loss to Salmon Arm on Friday.

On Saturday, the Warriors rebounded with a 5-2 victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings.

Liam Blackburn scored a pair in the win, with Jake Harrison, Jonathan Desbiens and Kyle Marino also scored for the Warriors who outshot P.G. 50-19.
