You never want to face the high-scoring Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos with a depleted lineup.
Soccer United of Kelowna tried that for a few minutes Monday night and fell behind 3-0. Things didn’t get any better as United gained their 10th and 11th players.
Mark Wasylyk and Duane Dennis each pulled hat tricks as the Ogopogos ambushed United 12-1 in Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League play at Marshall Field. Wasylyk now leads the league with 17 goals.
Bryan Schenker rang up a deuce, while ageless Brad Conlin, Ian Bos, Jeff Nice and Rick Danylyk produced singles in front of Mike Moorlag.
Wasylyk opened the offence with a stretched out header off a cross from Nice, who then converted a beauty pass from Schenker that sent him in all alone against veteran keeper Chris Burkitt on a slightly disputed offside non call.
Danylyk, playing right fullback, recieved a nice low cross-the-field pass from Conlin, and strolled in, untouched, before burying a low shot near corner.
Later, Wasylyk connected on a penalty kick, Bos finished nicely inside the six-yard box and Schenker notched a pair.
Dennis then put on his own Whitecaps clinic with a natural hat trick before Wasylyk finished his trick, and then Conlin moved up to srriker from defence and received a sweet feed from Nice for a slight breakaway. Conlin made his move and took a first crack at Burkitt, who made a sprawling save but couldn’t control the rebound which Conlin converted.
United spoiled Moorlag’s shutout bid midway through the final 45 minutes.
Tree Brewing FC bounced Bosman Accounting of Vernon 2-0 under the lights at Beasley Park in Lake Country.

Will Kruiper added a late security snipe for the Brewers, who are in fourth spot.
Bosman Accounting played a good passing game but did not have much success getting into the 18-yard box. The Central Hardware Man of the Match was central fullback Dan Rogers.
