West Kelowna Warriors to cap off road trip in Powell River

The Warriors will face off against Powell River Monday night

The Warriors are coming off a stellar 7-4 victory over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs Sunday afternoon.

It was a game where the Warriors came out strong out of the gate. Forward Cavin Tilsley scored a his first career BCHL hatrick Sunday afternoon. The Warriors would head to Powell River Sunday night with extra confidence needing a victory to leapfrog the Vernon Vipers in the BCHL’s Interior Division standings.

Tonight the Warriors will face another offensive juggernaut, the Powell River Kings. Last time the Warriors faced the Kings was back in November where the Warriors just edged the Kings 5-4. It was a game full of chances for each club. Warriors assistant coach Matt Miller thinks his club just needs to keep playing like they did Sunday afternoon.

“If we match the same effort as Sunday, we should have success Monday night,” said Miller.

The easy storyline to point out in this game is the battle between Warriors forward Mike Hardman versus Kings forward Ryan Brushett. Both are head to head for the BCHL’s goal scoring race. Brushett currently leads the league in goals scored with 36. Mike Hardman is sitting second with 34 goals.
