Arch Ecker

For many, the 15th of the month is payday. It’s a time when your bank account swells momentarily until the bill-fair comes calling. Today, the 15th of the month brings the Cowichan Valley Capitals calling and the Wenatchee Wild hope they have enough left in the bank to pay it forward in the BCHL playoffs…

Wild Game 7 tonight on NCWLIFE

We’d originally scheduled Big 9 soccer tonight on the NCWLIFE Channel. But the snow continues to wreak havoc on area schedules, including the planned game between Eastmont and Sunnyside tonight. That game will be played tomorrow at Lee Bofto Field at the Apple Bowl at 7:30, which you can watch LIVE on the NCWLIFE Channel…


Instead, our broadcast schedule tonight includes Game 7 of the Wild’s first-round playoff series with West Kelowna. This is a game where Wenatchee fell behind by two goals in the first period before Lucas Sowder went nuts, scoring a hat trick in a four-goal second period en route to a 6-3 Wild win. The puck drops at 7 tonight on the NCWLIFE Channel.
