Kelowna teams in minor football playoffs this weekend

Three Southern Interior Football Conference post-season games go Sunday on CNC turf

The semifinals of the South Interior Football Conference’s junior bantam division will take to the CNC turf on Remembrance day.

At noon on Sunday, the West Kelowna Sun Devils will take on the Vernon Marauders, while the Kelowna Mission Lions face the Salmon Arm Broncos at 2 p.m.

The winners will meet in the Interior final on Nov. 18.

Both the Sun Devils and Lions finished the regular season with 9-1 records.


In peewee semifinal playoff action on Sunday, the Kelowna Lions host the West Kelowna Sun Devils in a 10 a.m. kick off at CNC.

The Lions had a bye last week after finishing second in the conference during the regular season.

The Sun Devils advanced with a 13-7 quarterfinal win over Salmon Arm last Sunday.

The Sundevils had rushing touchdowns from Shamus Hogarth and Jacob Zimmerman.

“Once again it was a strong defense that would win this one for the Sundevils,” said coach Chris Orban.

A late interception by Cole Orban ended any chances for the Colts.

The other peewee semifinal features Kamloops and Vernon.

Atom final

The Kelowna Lions will play for the B.C. 9-man atom football championship this weekend.

On Saturday in Kamloops, the SIFC champion Lions will take on the Vanderhoof Vikings in the title game.

Kick off at TCC Field is 4 p.m.

The Lions won the SIFC crown with a 31-14 victory over Salmon Arm two weeks ago.
