Deegan Mofford was the ace the Warriors needed in Saturday’s victory. The former Rockets player notched a goal and two assists to lead West Kelowna to the win. Max Bulawka was once again a star for West Kelowna, picking up two goals to add to his team leading goals total of 13.

With a goal lead in the third period, the Warriors’ played lockdown defence and held the Centennials to only 10 shots in the period as goalie Brock Baier made the needed stops to grab West Kelowna’s seventh win of the year.
