Last week of Doug Birks playoff race.

Still 1-2 games to go for the teams in Doug Birks race. Three teams have ensured a place in the playoffs, Kamloops are first. Chase is second.  Three more separated by a total of 2 points.  Wow!

100 mile are guaranteed a playoff spot. They could be third or fourth.  Their last game of the year is Sunday against the Storm in Kamloops. Could be a first round matchup.  Sicamous play Princeton in Sicamous. They need one point to beat out Revelstoke. A win and they could finish third if 100 Mile lose their last game. 

Revelstoke plays Chase and need a win with Sicamous losing to get the final spot.  Revelstoke have had the best record in the division over the last ten games with scoring from Chavez-Leetch, Roberts and Fuist 

The Storm lead the division in goals scored and fewest goals against.  Chase are second in team scoring and fourth in goals against. Revelstoke is third in scoring and third in goals against.  Chase and the Storm are the only two teams in the division that have scored more goals than they have given up. Sicamous has the largest difference in goals for and against having given up 17 more goals than they scored. 

Sicamous may have the hardest game to finish the year.  Princeton is tied with Kelowna for third place in the Okanagan and need to win to avoid a first round match up against Osoyoos.  They also need Summerland to beat Kelowna. It is questionable if Chase will take a full lineup to Revelstoke so no idea what will happen in that game.  

In our division I have never seen a race like this. Don't go anywhere the fat lady hasn't even started to sing

Storm play Saturday 7 pm vs Spokane and Sunday at 5 against 100 Mile House.   Playoffs will start in Kamloops Friday February 20 at 7 pm and Saturday February 21 also a 7 pm start.  The Saturday game will also be a fundraiser for former Storm/Blazer/Venom trainer Peter Friedel.  Pete has been fighting diabetes and kidney problems. A portion of every ticket sold at the game will go to Peter.  Come out make some noise and help support Peter.  This is a joint fundraiser for the Storm, kamloops Venom and Kamloops Blazers. Pete has given tirelessly to the Kamloops sporting community it is our chance to give back.  Tell everyone you know to come to the game. Cheer on the boys and cheer on Pete
