The Warriors are coming off a hard earned overtime loss to the Penticton Vees Sunday afternoon. The Warriors got off to a great start holding on to a lead after the first period, but the wheels came off in the third when the Warriors lost their lead and ended up losing 5-4 in overtime. The game ended with the fans knowing the Warriors can compete with the best in the league pushing both the Penticton Vees and the Trail Smoke Eaters to their limits. Sunday’s loss would be the Warriors league leading 20th one goal loss of the season. The Warriors also have lost 6 games this year in which they’ve had leads in the third period.
Tonight the Warriors head to Salmon Arm to take on the Silverbacks. It’s been quite some time since these two teams have met. The Warriors have won their last two matchups thanks to stellar defensive play and great goaltending. This time around the Warriors are using a much stronger lineup, but the Silverbacks have started to pick up their play in 2020 after their slide back in December. The Warriors have also been outscored 10-2 in the Shaw Centre this year, a rink the Silverbacks hold a major home ice advantage in. The Warriors just need to focus on playing the same way they did in Trail and Penticton and it should lead to a major two points in the BCHL Interior Division standings. Currently the Warriors are sitting 3 points back from the Prince George Spruce Kings.
Tonight’’s game will be broadcast on both HockeyTV and the Warriors Mixlr Network. Puck drop at 7:00pm from the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm. For tickets to any upcoming home game visit tickets.westkelownawarriors.ca for details and packages.
