Wenatchee 8, Victoria 4 last night.
A Plethora of Possibilities
North Division. Wenatchee and Walla Walla are still tied for first and Bellingham is three games back in third. The Sweets beat Kelowna 5-2 last night. Bellingham had a nonleague 4-2 win over the San Francisco Seals.
Wenatchee’s and Walla Walla’s magic number to eliminate Bellingham is two...any combination of two AppleSox wins and or two Bell loses, or any combination of two Sweet wins or two Bell loses.
Wenatchee is at Kelowna for three. Maybe one at home with Walla Walla.
Walla Walla is at Bend for three. Maybe one at Wenatchee.
Bellingham hosts Victoria for one and then is at Victoria for three. There are a number of possibilities among these three teams.
Among potential, but not all, outcomes are Wenatchee and Walla Walla tying for first, Bellingham winning the whole thing, Wenatchee and Walla Walla tying for second, a three-way tie for first, and on an on. The quicker Wenatchee gets a win and Bellingham a loss, the better. Like tonight...Victoria at Bellingham. Go HarbourCats!
Corvallis. Won their seventh straight division title with 7-1 victory over Bend last night.
Bend. Has three games left with Wall Walla. If they win one they finish second.
Medford. Could tie Bend for second if they win their final game with Kitsap and Bend loses their final three games to Walla Walla. If this happens the Rogues are the number two seed in the South playoff as they beat Bend four games to two.
North: WENATCHEE 28-22, Walla Walla 28-22, Bellingham 25-25, Victoria 20-30, Kelowna 17-34
