Minor football finals set for weekend

Three Kelowna and one West Kelowna play for Southern Interior Football Conference titles

Four Central Okanagan teams will take to the gridiron this weekend with designs on winning a Southern Interior Football Conference title.

In the bantam division, the Kelowna Lions will take on Salmon Arm on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Kamloops. The Lions defeated the Riders 34-6 in the semifinal round.

The Lions and Salmon Arm split two regular season meetings, with a third game being postponed due to a referee shortage.

It will be a great game, the rubber match,” said Lions coach Corwyn Klak.

The three other games will be played Sunday at CNC in Kelowna.

At 10 a.m., the atom division will feature the Kelowna Riders taking on the Kelowna Lions.

The two teams played to a 20-20 tie during the regular season and finished tied for first with 5-0-1 records.

In the peewee division final Sunday at noon, the Kelowna Lions will meet the Salmon Arm Chargers.

The Lions qualified for the title game with a 42-26 win over the Kelowna Raiders last weekend. Noah Gross led the Lions with 173 yards rushing and three touchdowns, while Alex Mace added a 65-yard kick return for a touchdown.

In the junior bantam division at 2 p.m. at CNC, the West Kelowna RedBlacks will face Vernon in the final. The RedBlacks advanced thanks to a 32-0 win over Kamloops last weekend, while Vernon beat the Kelowna Lions 38-6 in the other semi-final.

The winners in all four divisions will qualify for the provincial 9-man championships to be held Saturday, Nov. 22 in Kamloops.
