The Bears won the game 2-1 in a shootout and were scheduled to play the Kelowna Owls Tuesday in the Okanagan semifinal.

Tied 1-1 after regulation, the Pen High Lakers boys’ soccer team lost 5-4 in a shootout to the Mt. Boucherie Bears during the Valley championship Nov. 1.

Cam Lynka was the lone scorer for the Lakers.

Lakers co-coach Michael Barron said the loss was unfortunate  as they played a pretty good game despite missing a few players.

“It was a hard-fought game,” said Barron, adding that the Lakers were on a roll, having won four games in a row. “We couldn’t pull through.”

Going into their game against the Bears, Barron said the players were confident. Among the players who had a strong game was keeper Laurenz Schirmeister.

“He’s a young player (Grade 10),” said Barron. “He had a great game.

Bears coach Adrian Zuyderduyn said his players performed well, especially because the Lakers defeated them 5-3 in league play.

“We did well to draw at 1-1 after regulation,” said Zuyderduyn. “Penticton has some very talented players on all areas of the field, so we had to work really hard to come away with the win.  The guys were proud of their effort, and I was pleased with how both teams played.”

The Bears faced the Kelowna Secondary School Owls on Nov. 6 in semifinal action, while the other game pitted the South Kamloops Titans against the Salmon Arm Golds. One team from the Okanagan will advance to provincials.
