Heat play hard in field lacrosse championship loss

The Penticton Heat U18 field lacrosse team lost the Interior Field Lacrosse championship to Kamloops.

Dan Chetner, coach of the U18 Penticton Heat field lacrosse team, didn’t get his wish in Kamloops last weekend.

After his team finished atop of the Interior Field Lacrosse Conference with nine wins and one loss on Nov. 6, Chetner said he expected his team to win the league championship.

Instead, they dropped an 11-10 decision to Kamloops.

“It was a good game. It was an entertaining game,” said Chetner. “I thought both teams played well. Kamloops, I think didn’t really have their team fully formed until late in the season. They were recruiting. Definitely the team we played was the best team we saw all season long from them.”

Chetner said his team had opportunities. The feeling after wasn’t very good.

“There was a lot of disappointed people and players and parents and coaches,” said Chetner. “In hindsight again, it was a hard fought game. Our team played well. We have got to congratulate Kamloops. They played a good game. Better than we’ve seen them play all year.”

Scoring for Penticton was Beau Chetner with three, Ben Olsen and Josh Dubrett with two goals, while Kale Lawrence, Nash Moog and Ryan Hughes each scored once.

The loss means the U18 squad will not advance to provincials. They will play two more tournaments, one in Richmond this weekend, and another in Seattle in early December, before their season ends.

Penticton’s U11 team lost to North Okanagan 15-1 and then 9-0 to Kelowna. The U15 team lost to Kamloops 13-2, then cruised past Kelowna 19-6.
