Warriors fall in Langley

The West Kelowna Warriors drew first blood, but couldn't find a way past Braedon Fleming the rest of the way.

Fleming made several spectacular saves, especially in the second period, leading the hometown Langley Rivermen past the Warriors 2-1 Tuesday night.

His heroics came as the Warriors were trying to build on their 1-0 lead.

After a scoreless first, newly acquired Garrett Worth got the Warriors on the board just 2:29 into the middle frame.

Worth beat Fleming high to the glove side from the left circle off the rush.

Langley tied it just past the midway mark of the period when Riley Wallack took a centering pass and squeezed the past past Brock Baier.

Rivermen captain Alec Capstick won it early in the third, converting on an end-to-end rush with Langley enjoying a man advantage.

Baier blocked 24 of the 26 shots he faced as Langley outshot the Warriors 26-25.

The Rivermen scored on one of their three power play chances, while the Warriors were kept off the board on their three opportunities.

The Warriors are off now until next Wednesday when they travel to Surrey to face the Eagles.
