Despite getting on the man advantage 13 times, the West Kelowna Warriors weren’t able to take advantage and fell to Alberta’s Brooks Bandits 4-2 Sunday afternoon at the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup.
The Warriors led 2-1 after one with Brett Mennear getting his third of the tournament and Quin Foreman getting the lone power-play marker of the game in 13 tries. Those tallies came after Jesse Baird had opened the scoring for Brooks.
In the middle frame, the Bandits went ahead on goals by Tristan Thompson and Cale Makar, who scored on the power play.
Brooks put the game away early in the third, with the Warriors on yet another power play, as Jeff Malott scored shorthanded.
Garret Hughson made 36 saves in the Bandits crease for the win while Matthew Greenfield made 30 stops for West Kelowna.
The Warriors have Monday off and will play next on Tuesday at 1 p.m. Pacific against the Manitoba champion Portage Terriers.
