Kamloops NorthPaws set to face Kelowna in final home series

Kamloops, Kelowna and Victoria in battle for final playoff spot in West Coast League’s North Division

The Kamloops NorthPaws dropped two of three games to the visiting Wenatchee AppleSox over the BC Day long weekend.

Wenatchee won the first two games by scores of 14-10 and 12-10 before Kamloops rebounded in the third and final contest with a 11-6 victory.

Wenatchee is now tied with the Edmonton Riverhawks atop the West Coast League North Division standings in the second half of the season. Both have records of 12-9. The Bellingham Bells, the division’s first-half winner, is right behind at 11-10.

Kamloops, with an overall record of 21-25, is fifth overall in the North Division, on the heels of Victoria (22-26) for the final playoff spot. Nipping at the NorthPaws’ tail are the Kelowna Falcons (20-25), against which Kamloops will play the next four games.

The first contest is on Monday (Aug. 1) in Kelowna, followed by a three-game series at Norbrock Stadium on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with 6:35 p.m. start times each night.

Those will be the final games of the regular season as the NorthPaws will finish the campaign with a three-game set in Bellingham from Aug. 5 to Aug. 7.
