The West Kelowna Warriors at home for first time in a month

Warriors finally back home

Nearly a month, and an ownership change later, the West Kelowna Warriors finally get a chance to skate before the home crowd tonight.

The Warriors haven't had a home date since late October.

They dropped all seven games away from home during that span, upping their losing skid to a franchise record-tying nine straight.

Tonight, the face a Wenatchee Wild team that had lost four in a row until beating the Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3-1 Thursday.

One of the Warriors four wins this season came at the expense of the Wild. In four previous meetings, the Warriors have one win, two losses and an overtime loss.

Friday's game will give fans a chance to see the club's two latest acquisitions, forwards Deegan Mofford and Tyler Cristall.

It's also the first home date under the owner ship of John Murphy and Rod Hume, who purchased the team from the BC Hockey League two weeks ago.

The club will unveil "Hockey Happy Hour" at Friday's game.

Beer and wine will be half price for one hour prior to puck drop.

“We want to reward fans for coming early as the players will be hyped by more bodies in the building as they hit the ice”, said Warriors new president Chris Laurie.

“Beyond that, our concession food is excellent and we welcome fans to come early for dinner and a drink at an affordable price”.

The Warriors will host Salmon Arm Saturday.
