100 Mile kicks it in Penticton

Women and men’s teams from 100 Mile House played some competitive soccer at a big tournament in the Okanagan recently.

Teams from Prince George, Kamloops and Spokane and Bellingham, Wash. also took the field in the 35th Annual Penticton Soccer Club’s Old Timers Tournament on Oct. 11-13.

While the local squads didn’t register any wins, both teams had a lot of fun, and newer players got to experience their first ever soccer tournament, explains 100 Mile House’s Lianne Heales.

Laura Lanzoni and Shelly Morton were great in net for the women’s team and Karina Cibrian was awesome on defence, she adds.
