Kali Loewen put up 17 pointts along with nine boards and three steals to help the Pen High Laker junior girls basketball team down Summerland 56-38 on Dec. 8.

Kalli Doell scored 13 points while collecting three rebounds, and Mckenna Clarke and Jennifer Hayman chipped in 10 and eight points respectively. Hayman also grabbed five rebounds. The win improves the Lakers to 5-0, including 2-0 in league play.

“For most of the night Summerland was the more focused, intense and the tougher team,” said Lakers coach Chris Terris. “We turned the ball over at an alarming rate and missed far too many point blank opportunities.  After such a positive start last weekend, it was surprising to see the girls so rattled.

“If there was a positive for us, it was our execution down the stretch,” Terris continued. “In the last few minutes, we managed to gain some composure and make some very good decisions with the ball.”

Terris described Summerland as a “young, feisty team.”

“They will be a force as the year progresses and they gain more experience,” he said.

The Lakers are in Kelowna this weekend for the Snowy Owl Tournament this weekend with games scheduled against Mt. Boucherie, Vernon Secondary and KSS.
