The under-17 Pinnacles FC opened their season against Kelowna United under-18 and earned a 1-1 draw. The Pinnacles played a strong game with players maintaining possession for parts of the game. Dan Thornton opened the scoring for the Pinnacles the first five minutes. Kelowna United tied the game on a corner kick half way through.
Looking for stronger competition this year, the Pinnacles are challenging themselves by playing up in their division. On the weekend, they hosted the under-18 Kamloops Blazers and won 2-1 for their first league win. Noah Eaton scored the winner, while Stefan Obravich opened the scoring.
Prior to the start of the season, the Pinnacles attended a showcase tournament in Phoenix, Ariz. They competed well in all three games, coming away with a win and two losses. The U-17 Pinnacles FC will be attending another showcase tournament in Seattle, WA, in May.
