Salmon Arm’s TED United has taken over the top of the table in the North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association’s Masters division.
TED’s 5-1 victory over VQA gave them three points, moving them two up on Gray Monk Impact, 4-1 losers to Dr. Lee Dental.
VQA keeper Sue Barss was kept busy and played brilliantly. The only goal for VQA began with Jenny Hatten’s corner kick hit the head of Vicki Ryan, bounced off a player sending it behind Ryan back to the 10 yard box for a high lob in by Angie Mendes. Splendid goal. Super strong defence kicks and clears of Leah Willinger and Lindsay Smith kept the VQA zone clean.
Carly Bibby worked it hard in centre midfield. Harmony Crockett, Ginger Nickoli and Carla Gibson had many runs down the field with attacks at the TED keeper but no tallies.
Jacquie Hansen scored twice for Dr. Lee while Erin Scott and Delina Erbenich added singles for the Blues. Hansen, Erbenich and Paula Brownlee hustled on the Dental crew’s front line all game to support the stellar play of keeper Lisa Arrotta.
Vernon ChickKickers blanked Rosters 5-0. Jen Kemper scored three times, Mel Jacobs had the other two with Dawn Ansdell setting up a pair of goals with great feeds. Robyn Sherwood earned the shutout.
It was a good night for Salmon Arm teams as they swept their three matches.
Shuswap Merlot beat Courtesy Motors Sistas 3-1 despite the Sistas putting forth their best effort of the year, according to coaches Kerry Zubot and Brett Bandy.
Newcomer Sarah Alfrey set up Sherri MacDonald for the Motors’ only goal. MacDonald, Liz Kelley and Jessica Garro up front, along with midfielders Andrea Zubot and Katie Nickerson, had strong nights for the Sistas.
Shuswap Kaos downed the Vernon Controllers 3-1. The Controllers started the match with nine players on the field, and keeper Michele Wernicke held the Kaos to one goal until the first water break.
Christyna Whieldon, Val Percy, and Zupp had a solid game on defence.
