West Kelowna, B.C. –  The West Kelowna Warriors return home to host the Penticton Vees Tuesday night in front of a sold out crowd.

The Warriors are coming off a split with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks last weekend. The Warriors suffered a 6-3 loss against the Silverbacks on Friday night but bounced back with a 2-0 victory on the Saturday led by goaltender Justin Katz who recorded his first BCHL shutout stopping all 26 shots he faced. Head Coach and General Manager Simon Ferguson was pleased with how his team played in the conclusion of the two game set, “We talked about it all week. Played a simple game and took advantage of the opportunities they gave us and we played really sound defensively”.

Tuesday November 23rd VS Penticton Vees (11-2): 7:00pm

Tonight the Warriors face their Okanagan rivals the Penticton Vees. The Vees are coming off a dominate win over the Cranbrook Bucks Sunday afternoon. Currently the Vees sit atop the BCHL’s league standings based on winning percentage but its the Warriors who lead the BCHL with points at 24. This is a much different Vees club the Warriors are used to facing in the past. The Vees have allowed the fewest goals against this season with 29 in 13 games played, they have also scored the most goals in the Interior Conference with 64. This team plays a similar game to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks where scoring can come from anywhere. It’s really the same game plan versus the Vees according to Warriors Head Coach and General Manager Simon Ferguson, “They have 4 lines that can score, they’re always a dangerous team similar to the Silverbacks. We’ve got to keep our game simple and we need to out match them”.

Puck drop for Tuesdays game is 7:00pm from Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna. Tonight’s game IS SOLD OUT. Tickets available for next Saturday’s home game at are available at WestKelownaWarriors.ca The game will also be broadcast live on HockeyTV and  the BCHLWarriors Mixlr feed.
