Sowder Goal vs Trail

Wenatchee Wild Win 2-out-of-3 in Road Trip

SALMON ARM, BC – The Wenatchee Wild were in Canada for the weekend in BCHL action, playing at Trail Friday and Salmon Arm Saturday…
In the first game, Wenatchee saw its 3-game winning streak come to an end in a 3-2 loss to the Smoke Eaters. Lucas Sowder and PJ Fletcher did what they could to help the cause, but Trail was up to the challenge. Arch Ecker had the call on the Wenatchee Wild Hockey Network. Video courtesy HockeyTV…


Saturday night’s game was close, with the Wild leading 2-1 heading into the 3rd period. But AJ Hodges’ second goal of the night 48-seconds into the frame opened the flood gates and Wenatchee poured in another four goals to win 7-1. Again to the highlights with Arch Ecker on the call and video courtesy HockeyTV…

So the Wild took two out of three games on the road and now return home to host West Kelowna Friday and Saturday at the Town Toyota Center with both games starting at 7:05.

Power of the “Stache” Rolls on for Minshew & Cougars

Looking at the Les Schwab Scoreboard in college football over the weekend…
We’ll start where the weekend began, on Friday in Portland where the Eastern Eagles demolished Portland State 74-23. Eastern’s quarterback Eric Barriere threw for five touchdowns and ran for another. The Eagles share the Big Sky championship with UC Davis and Weber State, who all finished at 7-and-1.

On Saturday, Gardner Minshew threw for 7 touchdown passes and 473-yards as Washington State torched Arizona 69-28. The game was pretty much over at halftime as the Cougars led going into the break 55-14. The 7 touchdowns in a game was also a Washington State record.

In Seattle, Washington’s Jake Browning threw for 242-yards and three touchdowns while Miles Gaskin rushed for 135-yards and a score as the Huskies beat Oregon State 42-23.

That sets up an Apple Cup in Pullman Friday with the Pac-12 North Title on the line. #8 Washington State is 7-and-1 in conference play, 10-and-1 overall while #18 Washington is 6-and-2 in the conference and 8-3 overall. Kickoff for Friday’s Apple Cup is at 5:30 on FOX TV. WSU has opened as a 3-point favorite…which in gambling terms is a “pick ‘em”.
