Lots of sports to watch live in Williams Lake on the Feb. 10 and 11 weekend

Sports enthusiasts in Williams Lake have a lot of live sports action options Feb. 10 and 11 with soccer, hockey and swim events in the lakecity.

Games on Saturday go until 9:30 p.m. and start again on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 6 a.m. with the final gold medal match scheduled for 11:45 a.m.

Organizers managed to plan 22 games for the 11 teams entered in the tournament, and while it was a lot to coordinate, they said it is all about the players.

The Williams Lake Blue Fins Swim Club is also hosting the Cariboo Dental Frost Fest Swim Meet for much of Saturday, with teams from Prince George, Quesnel, Kamloops as well as the Williams Lake swimmers diving in.
