May Classic soccer hits the pitch

The Pacific Brewing May Long Classic soccer tournament will be at Kings Park May 20 to 22

Twenty-plus teams will hit the pitch at Kings Park May 20 to 22 for the 56th Pacific Western Brewing May Long Classic Tournament.

“I think people come out to see this tournament, they are going to be very impressed with the level of play,” said Dale Anderson of the Penticton Soccer Club.

There will be six women’s teams, including a Pinnacles reunion squad and a competitive side led by Ray Hintz, who has guided past Pacific Coast Soccer League teams to playoff championships.

Anderson expected there to be about 12 men’s teams and said it has been a while since the club has attracted more than 20 teams for the tournament. Among the men’s teams will be the Penticton Tim Hortons Pinnacles, who open their PCSL Premier Men season on May 28. Anderson is coaching the Murray GM Men’s League all-stars.
