COWICHAN VALLEY, B.C. - The Cowichan Valley Capitals came back twice from two goals down and tied the game with 41.4 remaining, then beat the Warriors 6-5 overtime.
Kyle Horsman was responsible for getting the game to the extra frame, and he would play hero as well, completing the hat trick to give the Capitals their third win.
The Warriors controlled things throughout the majority of the first period, but it was 1-1 after 20 minutes of play. Jason Cotton had the goal as he deflected a shot from Michael Buonincontri on the power-play to tie it up.
Just seven seconds after Mitchell Stapely gave the Caps a 2-1 lead, Cole Woodliffe got his second goal in the BCHL for the Warriors, deflecting in a Hunter Zandee shot.
West Kelowna would take a 3-2 lead on Jonathan Desbiens first of the night.
Desbiens would continue to fly around early in the third period, making a nifty move on a 2 on 1 with Andrew Johnson, then banging in a loose puck from his knees to give West Kelowna a 5-3 lead.
The Capitals took advantage of the only sloppy play all night in those final five minutes, beating Scott Patton on a wrap around with Horsman laying in the crease.
The final minute scramble was after Cotton has an empty net attempt blocked, as Horsman tied it up.
In overtime, just moments after Kristian Blumenschein was hauled down on an end to end rush, Skylar Pacheco set up Horsman with the one-timer to win it.
Short turn around for the Warriors as they play Sunday at 2 p.m. against Victoria.
