West Kelowna Warriors go 2-and-0 at the BCHL Showcase

Warriors get goals galore from Quin Foreman as team improves to 4-1-0-0 on the season

West Kelowna Warriors players put their right feet forward in front of collegiate scouts this week as the team won both of its games at the BCHL Showcase, the fifth annual college showcase event, held in Chilliwack.

Quin Foreman scored twice Thursday afternoon to lead the Warriors to a 5-3 win over the Coquitlam Express, the Warriors second straight win at the BCHL Showcase.

The Warriors outshot the Express 42-25 in the game, scoring four times in the second period and improving to 4-1-0-0 on the season.

Mitchell Barker, Reed Gunville and Mitchell Martan also scored for the Warriors while Shane Farkas earned the win in the Warriors net.

The Warriors earned the win just 15 hours after a 5-2 victory over the Chilliwack Chiefs top open the Showcase.  Foreman tallied a hat trick for West Kelowna and the 20-year-old forward now has seven goals and 1o points in just five games played this season.

Michael Ryan and Connor Sodergren added the other goals in the Warriors victory. Xavier Burghardt making 31 saves on 33 shots for his 2nd BCHL win.

The BCHL Showcase is held every year at the start of the season where each team in the league plays games that count towards the standings but are held in one spot, making it easy for scouts from higher levels of hockey to see every team.

The four-plus days of hockey action will be watched by upwards of 150 scouts from the college hockey and pro ranks.

West Kelowna is now done at the showcase while the rest of the tournament continues until Sunday.

The Warriors now return home to begin a five game homestand at Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna. The Warriors will host Merritt on Tuesday and Penticton on Saturday as the team gets set for an extended amount of time on home ice, playing six of its next seven games in front of the home crowd.
