Grizzlies Lose Tough Match on the Road
Date: May 16, 2011
The new West Kelowna Grizzlies met a determined Merritt Men's Team on the weekend, losing 39 – 12 to the hosts. After falling behind 3 – 0, the Grizz put together an impressive passing attack that led to a try by Josh Kalke at the 10 minute mark. However, this was the only time that the locals were able to lead. Injury problems and a strong Merritt forward attack led to four unanswered tries by the host Merritt squad. The West Kelowna boys were able to score another impressive try on a great run by Jeff Lohse late in the game. That try was converted by Nate Ink.
Next game for the West Kelowna Grizzlies is this weekend, as the Grizz are hosting the league-leading Vernon team. Game time is 1:00 PM at the Parkinson Rec Centre.
