West Kelowna drops overtime heart-breaker to undefeated Silverbacks

The Warriors pick up a point but lose their fourth straight game

The West Kelowna Warriors fourth straight loss came with only seven seconds left in overtime Tuesday night.

Up against an undefeated Salmon Arm team, the Warriors played the Silverbacks until the bitter end and held a lead for most of the night. Salmon Arm forced overtime with less than two minutes left in the third period, but the Warriors were unable to hold on and were rewarded only with a single point in the overtime loss.

Warriors goalie Brock Baier made 40 saves and did his best to give the Warriors the chance, but the Silverbacks’ speed and passing was too much for West Kelowna in the 4-3 loss.

The Warriors were out-shot 43-37 Tuesday night.

West Kelowna hits the road for their next game Saturday against the undefeated and league-leading Penticton Vees.
