Sun host Rams in regular season finale

Okanagan club tunes up for BCFC playoff matchup with Vancouver Island Raiders

  • Oct. 12, 2012 12:00 p.m.

The Okanagan Sun have clinched a playoff spot but the work continues towards the second season this weekend when the Sun host a tough opponent in the Langley Rams.

The Sun and Rams meet for the third time this season Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the Apple Bowl, already knowing who they will meet in the playoffs in the powerhouse Vancouver Island Raiders.

The Sun have clinched a play-off spot and will head to Nanaimo to take on the six-time defending champion VI Raiders in a British Columbia Football Conference semi final game.

After dropping two games by a combined three points there this season the club will be looking for a win when it counts the most.

But first up are the Rams, another team that has beaten the Sun in each of the previous meetings.

And while the Sun know its playoff destiny, the game means everything to the visitors. A win by the Rams and they finish in 2nd place and will host the Westshore Rebels in the other semi final. A Rams loss to the Sun however, drops them to 3rd place and they travel to the Rebels home park for that game.

Saturday October 13th is food bank day at the Apple Bowl!

Okanagan Sun fans are asked to bring a non-perishable food donation with them to the game and enter to win an incredible “Ultimate WildPlayer” pass to the new WildPlay Element Park right here in Kelowna, valued at over $180.

Tickets at the gate starting an hour prior to kickoff or in advance.
