Wild Drop Game 4, Go for Doyle Cup Title Friday


Wild Fall 5-2 in Game 4, Go at Doyle Cup Friday

WENATCHEE, WA – The Wenatchee Wild will be spending a few more days in the lovely town (we assume) of Spruce Grove, Alberta after falling in Game 4 of the Doyle Cup last night. Facing elimination and a possible sweep, the home town Saints came out on fire last night at the Grant Fuhr Arena and beat Wenatchee 5-2. Saints play-by-play announcer Brandon Ewanchyshyn (eh-WAHN-shuh-shin) has the call, video courtesy HockeyTV…

Thank you Brandon, so yes, a Game 5 Friday night at 6 as the Wild will again try for the victory and wrap up the Doyle Cup Championship.


By the way, if you want to watch Game 1 of the Doyle Cup, tune in tonight…
It’s Thursday, so that means it’s Hockey Night tonight on the NCWLIFE Channel as Wenatchee hosts Spruce Grove in Game 1 from last Friday at the Town Toyota Center. That all gets underway at 7 o’clock tonight. Then, as we look ahead to tomorrow, it’s the Les Schwab Classy Chassis Parade at 6:30. And on Saturday, the Stemilt Growers Grand Parade at 11am right here.

Turning to the prep schedule for today…
Eastmont and West Valley are at Sunnyside for a track meet at 4. Wenatchee will host Eisenhower, Davis and Moses Lake for a meet this afternoon, also at 4.
In Tennis, Wenatchee hosts Davis at 3. Eastmont’s at West Valley at 3. And Cashmere takes on Ellensburg at 4.

The Wenatchee Valley Thunder lacrosse team has their biggest game of the year tonight in Richland…
Richland is right behind Wenatchee in the standings. So, if Wenatchee wins or loses by 3-points or less, the Thunder will win the regular season league title and have the #1 seed, and home field advantage in the playoffs beginning May 12th.

Marines Bullpen Can’t Hold Lead After Paxton’s 16-K’s

On the Les Schwab Scoreboard, the Mariners got an absolute GEM of a performance from James Paxton, and then the bullpen blew it…
Paxton struck out a career-high 16 batters through 7-innings and handed the ball over to the bullpen. Juan Nicasio gave up a 2-run home run to Jed Lowrie in the 8th and then Edwin Diaz gave up a solo blast to Mark Canha (CAN-uh) in the 9th to lose it as Oakland gets the 3-2 victory. The two teams will play the rubber match of the 3-game set tonight with Wade LeBlanc getting his first start this season for Seattle against Sean Manaea. First pitch is at 7:10 at Safeco Field.
