Pinnacles score winner late

Late goals by Ross Rufiange and Dan Hunt pushed the Penticton under-21 Tim Horton’s Pinnacles past Chilliwack FC.

Penticton Pinnacles under-21 team collided with Chilliwack FC last weekend for a rematch in Chilliwack. The Pinnacles won 2-0.

Late goals by Ross Rufiange and Dan Hunt pushed the Penticton under-21 Tim Horton’s Pinnacles past Chilliwack FC.

The win on the road improves the Pinnacles to 2-0 in the Reserve Division of the Pacific Coast Soccer League.

Pinnacles coach Tony Munoz liked the performance by his players who tallied the first goal in the 80th minute then buried the insurance marker with five minutes remaining.

“We had most of the pressure most of the game,” said Munoz. “Our goalie made a critical save and so did Tyler Allison. He cleared the ball from the goal area. We kept pushing. We were attacking all the time.”

While Chilliwack was under the gun for most of the game, they did generate a few chances. What also impressed Munoz was that his players never gave up. He saw an improvement in that they weren’t tired compared to the opener when the Pinnacles defeated Chilliwack at King’s Park 3-0 on May 7. There were stretches during the match when the Pinnacles had fatigued.

While the Pinnacles don’t play again until May 28 when they host West Van FC at King’s Park, they will be preparing for the 50th Pacific Western Brewery soccer tournament at King’s Park. The Pinnacles coach wants to see his players try new things without the fear of making mistakes.

“We can actually try our passing game and our controlling of the game by, instead of a kick and run, change our style of game,” said Munoz, who wants his team to play a possession game. “I am looking forward to the team trying more of what they have been learning.”
