West Kelowna Warriors visit Prince George

The Warriors are back on the road again after a lengthy roadtrip

The West Kelowna Warriors had little time back home before having to set off on for yet another road-trip to Prince George. The Warriors’ face-off against one of the best teams in the Spruce Kings Thursday night.

West Kelowna netted only two points in their recent three game road trip, that ended up lasting five days due to weather delays. First, it was a tough 2-1 loss to the BCHL’s best Chilliwack Chiefs on Feb. 8, then a high-scoring 7-4 win over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs the night afterwards, and a final 5-4 loss to Powell River Kings on Feb. 10.

Warriors’ head coach Brandon West said there was a lot of positives to take away from the road-trip.

“We felt we played a pretty good 170 out of 180 minutes on the trip. Yes, it’s disappointing to not make up any ground in the standings but we know that our game is starting to tighten up and that’s what we wanted,” said West. “We need to find some points this weekend to make up for it.”

The Warriors sit in sixth place in the B.C division, and play the BCHL’s second best team the Spruce Kings Thursday night. The Warriors have had success against the Spruce Kings so far this season, with the latest victory coming in at 6-1 in a Chilliwack BCHL Showcase in January.

Coach West knows the Spruce Kings will be ready to play Thursday.

“They play very well in their own barn. We have to be ready to play and make sure we are tough to play against,” said West.

The Warriors’ season is coming to a quick end with only four games remaining after Thursday. West Kelowna will finish with three home games starting Feb. 16 against Vernon, then Merritt, and then Trail. They will finish the regular season in Trail on Feb. 23 as playoffs are set to start in March.
