Mike Van Unen of the Merritt Centennials joins Jesse to discuss the call that brought him out of class to inform him he's a Cent, if he plans on challenging his bro for the gold medal, we play some tic-tac-toe and we learn a new Cents word of the week!
The Cents came close to finishing 5th, but needed a regulation win versus the Warriors on Friday. After a meaningless game in Langley on Saturday, the Cents head into the playoffs in 6th place and will face 3rd-place Wenatchee in the first round.
Catch up on all the action in the week that was. The Island Swing road trip - games in Powell River, Nanaimo, and Duncan against the Kings, Clippers, and Capitals. The Cents had a few players making homecomings: Mattias Dal Monte and Austin Roden, but the parents of Matt Kopperud, Joey Berkopec, Jackson Munro, and Henry Cleghorn were also on the road following the team.
Plus a look ahead to this weeks action against the Langley Rivermen, the Chilliwack Chiefs, the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, and the Victoria Grizzlies.
Justin Picard joins Jesse on The Afternoon to discuss the 2018 festival, what to expect, and why the dates have changed this year.
