The Westside Warriors will host the rival Penticton Vees tonight (Friday) to open their 2010 BCHL pre-season schedule.

The face-off will be at Royal LePage Place is 7 p.m.

The two Okanagan teams will meet for a rematch Saturday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

On Wednesday, Sept. 1 Westside will host the Merritt Centennials, then will wrap up the exhibition campaign Friday, Sept. 3 against the Cents at Nicola Valley Arena.

Westside placed third in the Interior Division last season before being eliminated by Penticton in the second round of the playoffs.

Pro golf…

Dean Claggett’s round of 2-under-par 69 good enough for a one-shot victory at the latest event on the Callaway IPGA Tour.

Claggett edged out a pair of Sun Rivers professionals, Ian Henson and Brad Clapp, who carded rounds of even-par 70 on Monday at the Black Mountain Golf Course in Kelowna.

Clagget picked up $500 for his efforts, while Henson and Clapp each earned $360.

Tying for fourth place at 71 was Ryan Street and Mark Aven of the Vernon Golf and Country Club.

In clinching the leading assistant honours on the order of merit, Aven will represent the Interior PGA on team B.C. at the upcoming Canadian Assistants Championship next month in Victoria.

Black Mountain’s Brice McDermott, Kelowna Golf and Country Club’s Rob Anderson, and Jesse Crowe of Canoe Creek tied for sixth with 72s.

The next stop on the Callaway IPGA Tour is Sept. 13 at the Two Eagles Golf Course in West Kelowna.

Peak to Beak…

The Kelowna Running Club’s 27th annual Peak to Beak Race is set for Sunday, Sept. 19.

The 18 km course starts from the top of Knox Mountain and finishes at Quail’s Gate Estate Winery in West Kelowna.
