Lakers girls soccer squad faces Titans in quarter-final match

The Pen High Lakers senior girls soccer team finished sixth in the AAA Okanagan Valley after settling for a 0-0 draw against the NorKam Saints Monday in Kamloops.

“We played one of our best games of the season against North Kamloops,” said Lakers coach Drew Carlile. “We created a lot of pressure and controlled much of the play. We had a number of chances on net, but just couldn’t score.”

Offence was also a problem for the Lakers on April 30 in a 3-0 loss to the Mt. Boucherie Bears in West Kelowna. One of the things Carlile liked is that they kept the Bears’ scoring chances to a minimum.

On Thursday, the Lakers face the South Kamloops Titans in a quarter-final game and Carlile stressed the need to finish chances. Carlle said his team needs to play a strong defensive game if they want to advance to the semifinal round, expected to be against the Kelowna Secondary Owls.
