Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Warriors

The West Kelowna Warriors will pay their lone visit to South Surrey this season on Friday evening to take on the Surrey Eagles in the first of a home-and-home series that will conclude on Saturday in West Kelowna. Friday's game will be the second meeting of the season between the two teams. The Warriors defeated the Birds 6-1 back on September 9th at the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack.

It's been a great week for the Surrey hockey club with lots of good news coming out of the nest. New addition Adam Tambellini was named the BCHL Player of the Week and was ranked 62nd among North American skaters in the NHL's mid-season rankings ahead of the summer entry draft while both Drew Best and Brett Mulcahy committed to attend NCAA schools. The Birds enter Friday's action on a three game winning streak and have a very strong 7-1-0-2 record against teams from the Interior Division.

The Warriors have also been hot of late. After making a pair of trades at the deadline last week to acquire Mitch Nardi from Coquitlam and Daniel Gayle from Fort McMurray of the AJHL, West Kelowna has won three in a row, picking up victories over Powell River, Trail and Merritt. The Warriors currently sit in third in the Interior Division, one point back of second place Merritt and seven points ahead of fourth place Salmon Arm. Marcus Basara and Seb Lloyd have led the way for West Kelowna this season when it comes to offensive production. Basara has 47 points in 38 games while Lloyd has tallied 46 points in 34 games.
