Heat wins lacrosse title

A perfect season for the under-12 Penticton Heat field lacrosse team was capped by winning the Interior Youth Field Lacrosse League.  The Heat dominated the North Okanagan Legends then handily beat the Kamloops Rattlers to claim the crown during the Nov. 3 weekend. The Heat hope to keep their winning ways going as they will be competing at the Seattle Space Needle Shootout at the end of the month.

Battlefield Fight League returned to Penticton and the Trade and Convention Centre on Nov. 9.  BFL 19 had Penticton’s Mark Dobie and Oliver’s Marlan Hall competing. Fighting in the pro division, Dobie forced Nolan Clark to tap out at 4:20 of the opening round using a guillotine choke. Hall was defeated by Gagan Gill in the third round, 32 seconds in as Gill used the guillotine choke on him.
