Penticton’s Speedway midget Heat lacrosse team finished fifth in a 10-team tournament in Richmond.  The undermanned Heat wrapped up the tournament with a 7-6 victory over the host Richmond Roadrunners.  With two wins and two losses, the Heat were tied for fourth after the round robin portion but lost out in the tie-breaker to just miss playing in the semi-final.  The Heat leading scorers were Jean-Luc Chetner, Josh Greenwood and Kaid MacLeod.  Also scoring for the Heat at the tournament were Trevor Dermody, Dane Franks, Trevor Parkinson, Tanner Thompson and Connor Walton.  Strong goaltending by Bradley Stel and Charles Nicholas was key. Providing strong defence and hard work were Zach French, Adam Jones and Levi Thompson.

Next action for the midget Heat is their home Barnburner tournament at McLaren Arena May 27 to 29.  Games start at 2 p.m. on Friday with the Final at 2 p.m. on Sunday.  Teams from Penticton, the Lower Mainland, Prince George and Edmonton compete for the Barnburner tournament title.
