The West Kelowna Warriors suffered their worse loss of the season on Saturday night, dropping an 11-2 final against the Wenatchee Wild at Town Toyota Center in Washington.
The Wild opened their scoring frenzy at the 3:48 mark of the 1st period on a power play goal from Colin Burston, who doubled the Wenatchee lead at the 8:18 mark of the frame on a shorthanded goal.
On the same power play, Dakota Raabe beat Warrior netminder Nik Amundrud just 38 seconds later to extend the Wenatchee lead to 3-0.
Connor Sodergren got the Warriors on the board at the 16:18 mark of the 1st period as he was sent in alone on a breakaway from a pass by Peter Tomaras and made no mistake, beating Wild goaltender Anthony Yamnitsky for his 10th goal of the season to make it a 3-1 Wenatchee advantage.
Jacob Modry tallied his first BCHL goal for the Wild at the 17:50 mark of the period to round out the scoring in the 1st and give Wenatchee a 4-1 lead after 20 minutes.
The Warriors cut the lead to two again on a gorgeous tap-in by Matthew Campese. After a pass from Nicholas Rutigliano from the right wing side, Campese tapped it in on the glove side for his 6th goal of the season at the 4:05 mark of the 2nd period.
The Wild scored seven unanswered goals after that point, with two more in the 2nd period from Chris Jones at the 9:40 mark and Burston completing his hat trick at 10:47 of the 2nd period to give Wenatchee a 6-2 lead after 40 minutes.
