Wednesday, August 26, 2015 - Submitted by Kyle Anderson
Hockey is back in West Kelowna.

The West Kelowna Warriors dropped a 3-2 decision to the Penticton Vees in their Exhibition opener in front of 610 fans at Royal Lepage Place. 

The Warriors, who iced a lineup that averaged around 17 years of age, gave up a 1st period goal to Peter Zhong of the Vees at 7:29.

Daniel Paul settled into the net for West Kelowna after that, stopping a total of 20 shots in 32:33 of action.

Lane Gilliss got the Warriors on the board on the power play at 11:44, beating Nolan Hildebrand with a shot to tie the game. Mitchell Martan and Riley Thorpe drew the assists.

The Vees scored in the final minute of the frame against Gio Sambrielaz as Joseph Santalucia's point shot beat the Warriors netminder through a screen.

Penticton made it 3-1 just 3:50 into the 3rd as Zhong scored his 2nd of the night assisted by Andrew Kemp.

West Kelowna made it interesting late in the hockey game, as Josh Latta scored on a bang bang play in front of the Vees goal on a great pass from Justin Wilson.

The Warriors had a couple key chances to score in the final 2 minutes, but Hildebrand shut the door for the Vees as they picked up their 1st win of the Exhibition season.

Sambrielaz finished with 18 saves in goal as the Vees outshot West Kelowna by a 41-29 margin.

The Warriors continue their exhibition schedule on Friday night by hosting the Trail Smoke Eaters at 7:00 pm at Royal Lepage Place. Tickets just $5.
