Kelowna Minor Hockey rep hockey teams are either wrapping up their regular seasons, enjoying a bye weekend or beginning the first round of playoffs as the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association season winds toward the playoffs.

Thanks to a 14-3-3 record the Kelowna midget Tier 1 team has a bye in the first round of the midget Tier 1 playoffs. Vernon and Kamloops are meeting in a first round series that begins this weekend.

At the peewee level the Kelowna Tier 1 team was undefeated in OMAHA play this season with a 14-0-1 record. This weekend they begin play against Vernon in the first round of the pee wee Tier 1 playoffs.

Game one was Friday night and game two is Sunday in Vernon. A potential third game would be Feb. 18.

Kelowna’s bantam Tier 1 team (see story) is awaiting a second round match-up with West Kelowna in two weeks. Penticton and Vernon will meet this weekend in the bantam Tier 1 first round of the playoffs.

In the midget female league the regular season will wrap up this weekend. Kelowna’s midget girls are 8-6-1 so far this season and will close its regular season schedule with a game against Salmon Arm.
