“There are a lot of new kids on the team this year – not new to the sport – and they are just getting used to playing together as a team for the first time,” said team spokesperson Lori Pounder.
The Legends opened the weeked at the Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong, falling 8-3 to the Raiders.
The visiting Kamloops Rattlers edged North Okanagan 9-8 at Kal Tire Place North Saturday, April 29.
