Wild’s 4-1 Victory Over Merritt Equals 4-0 Sweep

WENATCHEE, WA – The Wenatchee Wild are celebrating their 10th anniversary this season. And in nine of those years of existence, they’ve never lost a first-round playoff series. Add a 10th consecutive year to that record as Wenatchee completed the sweep of Merritt last night in Game 4. After a scoreless first period, the Centennials would strike first.

Wenatchee Faces Vernon in 2nd Round of Playoffs

Wenatchee will move on to the second round of the playoffs thanks to goals by Josh Arnold, Matt Dorsey, Jasper Weatherby and Lucas Sowder.  It was a great night in goal for Austin Park, who stopped 32 of 33 shots. The Wild advance to play Vernon in the second round of the playoffs beginning next week at the Kal Tire Place in Vernon. Both teams have to agree to a schedule fitting each team’s home ice before it can officially be set. The best-of-seven series would shift to the Town Toyota Center for Games 3, 4 and, if necessary, 5 most likely mid-week March 20th through the 23rd.
The #2 seeded Vipers swept their series with Salmon Arm in the first round, as did #1 seed Penticton over Coquitlam. The Vees will face Trail in their second-round series after the Smoke Eaters swept West Kelowna.
