Yakima weather postpones Wenatchee and Eastmont games tonight


Snowy Yakima Valley forces game delays

WENATCHEE, WA – Heavy snowfall and treacherous roads in the Yakima Valley will prevent Eastmont and Wenatchee from playing their scheduled games tonight. Instead, Eastmont will host Sunnyside tomorrow night at 5:45 while Wenatchee will travel to West Valley tomorrow night, also at 5:45.
We do have a score from last night…Entiat defeated Wilson Creek 58-24.
And the Entiat girls are playing back-to-back days with a game at Easton tonight at 6.

On the boy’s schedule for tonight…
Everything will have to wait until tomorrow. So Eastmont and Wenatchee will have another day to prepare for their tests.

Right now, the Wildcats are in good position to be in next week’s District Play-In game at 4-and-7, but I’m sure they’d love to get a win to possibly host that game next Tuesday.
The Wenatchee boys will be on the road at West Valley in a battle for first place in the Big 9. The Rams sit a game behind the Panthers in the standings with Wenatchee at 9-and-1 and West Valley at 8-and-2.

By the way, with Wenatchee notching its first win last Friday, if the Panthers could get a win at West Valley and get some help from Davis beating Eisenhower, that would put them in a position to possibly make the playoffs in its game against Moses Lake on Friday.

Taking a look at the updated NCWLIFE Sports Schedule this week…
The games we have scheduled for tonight are cancelled. So then Hockey Night Thursday night features the Wenatchee Wild’s game from last Saturday against the Vernon Vipers.

Super Bowl viewership lowest in over a decade

Circling back to Sunday’s Super Bowl, apparently the 53rd version of the NFL’s championship drew the worst ratings in over a decade…
According to the numbers, the game averaged a 44.9 rating in the 56 markets measured by Nielsen, the Los Angeles Times reported. That rating is down 5 percent from last year and the lowest since 2008.

According to Nielsen data, 98.2 million viewers tuned in to the big game. CBS, which aired the game for the first time since 2006, counted streaming platform viewers, putting the total at 100.7 million. That number is still down from the 105.4 million viewers who watch on all platforms in 2018.
