Penticton and Merritt will play make-up game Friday, Nov. 26

The original game was cancelled when Merritt was evacuated due to floods

The Penticton Vees are slated to play the Merritt Centennials on Nov. 26, after the league had postponed the original matchup between the teams on Nov. 17.

All of Merritt was forced to evacuate the city early last week because of the devastating floods in the area. As a result, the Centennials were unable to travel to Penticton.

The league announced Tuesday that the game will instead happen nine days after the original postponement.

Tickets for the make-up showdown between the two clubs are set to go on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Before the team’s home game against the Centennials on Friday, the Vees (11-2-0-0) will be in West Kelowna on Tuesday night Nov. 23 to take on the Warriors.

Penticton was originally supposed to spend the next games on the road before the league had announced the home make-up game against Merritt.

The team’s four-game road trip is no more, as Penticton will host Merritt on Friday instead of remaining as the visitors.

The Vees will be in Vernon to play the Vipers the next day.
