The South Okanagan Flames junior B lacrosse team knows what they want to accomplish this season.

“I want to win our league,” said Flames coach Kevin Thompson, whose squad is now 2-0 in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League after Monday’s 20-13 win over the Armstrong Shamrocks.

After finishing 10-6 for second place, the Flames were knocked out in the first round by the Kamloops Venom, who went on to win the league championship.

While the Flames no longer have Chris Pond and Dean Grimm, who aged out, Cooper Holick, Mitch Brodt and Isaiah Kozak will be joining the team. Kozak played in the National Collegiate Athletic Association with the Lindenwood Lions. In four games he had one goal.
