Injuries give Pinns greater challenge

They never quit and that’s what pleased Penticton Tim Horton’s Pinnacles coach Tony Munoz most on Sunday.

Dan Hunt of the Penticton Pinnacles fires a pass downfield ahead of Gian Luther of Victoria United during Sunday’s Pacific Coast Soccer League match at King’s Park in Penticton. The Pinnacles scored a pair of second half goals to earn a 2-2 draw.

They never quit and that’s what pleased Penticton Tim Horton’s Pinnacles coach Tony Munoz most on Sunday.

The under-21 squad fought back to erase a two-goal lead Victoria United had after one half at King’s Park in Reserve Division action in the Pacific Coast Soccer League. The Pinnacles were third in the league with four wins and three losses heading into the match.

“We were unlucky in the beginning,” said Munoz. “We did miss a few opportunities. It could have been a different game if we capitalized on them.”

Offence for the Pinnacles came from Dan Hunt on a penalty shot from just outside the 18-yard box, and Kyle Logan off a direct free kick.

The Pinnacles next host Okanagan FC on Wednesday at King’s Park at 7:30 p.m.  Okanagan FC lost their last match 3-1 to Victoria United at home on Saturday. With Munoz short of players due to injury and Logan not able to play because of three yellow cards, the coach’s focus is more on having enough bodies than using Tuesday’s practice to improve on areas of their game.

“I can’t really ask for anything from them,” said Munoz, who again will be looking for valuable contributions from their subs. “Whoever shows up is going to play.”

The Pinnacles final home game of the season will be against Vancouver FC on July 3 at King’s Park at 2 p.m.
