The local junior hockey team the Merritt centennials are done for the season. The team lost out to Penticton in 4 straight last week . A young man and member of the team from Ohio said he was grateful that they had made the playoffs and was philosophical about not making it to the finals. He said there was a player from Spokane Washington on the team as well, implying that he didn’t feel separated or isolated on the team.

The Merritt centennials are selling season tickets for the 42 season next year, at 115 dollars it is a great way to support youth in Merritt.
