Warriors, Smokies get very cozy
Oct 2, 2012 / 5:00 am
The West Kelowna Warriors and Trail Smoke Eaters will become very familiar with each other before the week is out.
The BCHL rivals, who have already met twice in the past ten days, will face off with each other two more times in the next four games.
The Warriors travel to Trail for a mid-week encounter Tuesday before concluding the home-and-home set Friday back at Royal LePage Place.
The teams have split the first two meetings. Trail was a 3-1 winner on home ice Sept. 21 before the Warriors got retribution 9-2 last Friday at RLP.
In last Friday's rematch, the Warriors jumped on the visitors early, establishing a 4-0 lead before the game was eight minutes old.
They cruised the rest of the way.
It was the Warriors' first win on home ice, snapping a three-game winless streak.
Brett McKinnon and Max French each had two goals and two assists to lead the way.
Warriors assistant coach Brent Gough cautioned that the Smoke Eaters would be ready for the Warriors when the teams renew acquaintances Tuesday.
Following Friday's home date with the Smoke Eaters, the Warriors will play six of their next eight away from home.
