Bradbury backstops Kal Tire win

Kal Tire brushed back the Silver Stars 2-0 in an Okanagan Oldtimers 55+ Soccer League derby match Thursday night at Marshall Field.

Geoff Bradbury made a few sparkling saves and distributed the ball around well to earn the shutout in the season opener for both teams.

Midfielder Denis Chabot – Longhorn Man of the Match – neatly deflected a hard cross by striker Mark DeVolder past a stunned Stars’ keeper Ray Tims just before the first-half whistle.

Speedy Uwe Wolters of the Stars had a couple of scoring chances, shooting wide from in close after colliding with burly Kal Tire defender Irv Schur in the first half.

Midfielder Jim Sparrow added insurance with about 17 minutes left, finding the top, right corner with a corker free kick from 25 yards out which Tims got his fingertips on.

Defender Glen Stephanishin, who looked extremely sharp after dropping 50 pounds in the winter, was the Re/Max Man of the Match for the Stars.
