Grizzlies Lose Rematch to Penticton Squad
Date: May 8, 2011
The West Kelowna Grizzlies hosted the Penticton Harlequins last Saturday at Parkinson Rec Centre and were in tough right from the get go.
The Harlequin forwards dominated the loose early and Penticton ran in three tries in the first 15 minutes. The West Kelowna boys settled down a bit to play a stronger defensive game but the half time whistle was a bit of a welcome.
In the second half the Grizz found a spark when a surprising short line out ball was clutched by prop Beau Janzen, who quickly bull-dozed his way in for a try. That was followed up by some more determined play from the Grizz and another try from Josh Kalke. Nate Ink converted the try.
Penticton found their earlier strength and finished with three more tries to end the game.Final score - Penticton 34, West Kelowna 12.
Next game for West Kelowna is next Sunday in Merritt against the Merritt Men's Team.
