Cole Kingzett scored the lone goal for the Penticton Tim Hortons Pinnacles in their 2-1 loss to the Victoria Highlanders Sunday.
“Our team played well enough to win,” said Pinnacles coach Ezra Cremers following the home defeat to open the Pacific Coast Soccer League season. “That’s all I can ask for from the boys. With a few changes, with a little bit of luck, I thought we did very well. We limited Victoria to maybe four or five chances. We had eight to 10 chances. The second half really shown that.”
Cremers believes with more time they could have possibly won. He also believes the squad is competitive, but knows there is work to be done.
“There is a lot of good learning moments,” said Cremers. “We had three young guys (Jordell Afonso, Kyle Martins and Nico Kahl) play for us. There is a lot of building pieces.
Cremers looks forward to their next match against the Vancouver Thunderbirds. That match will be at King’s Park at 2:30 p.m. on June 3.
