The AF Blazers did what no other team could do Tuesday in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters play.
The Blazers took advantage of a shorthanded Peacock Sheridan Group squad, and scored a decisive 8-0 Div. 1 decision at Marshall Field, handing the Reds their first loss of the season.
The PSG Reds played with only seven players.
The Blazers lead 3-0 at half and took advantage of an exhausted PSG squad with five goals in the second half.
Aspen Kozak and Hannah Nesbitt sniped a pair, while Shantell Hayhurst, Cassandra Otto, Alyssa Ward and Julie Kentel added singles for the victorious Blazers.
Mid-fielders Steph Taylor and Anita Kossowski split the keeper duties for the Reds.
With thunder and lightning rolling over the hills towards the southeast, the Adventure Bay Sistas cooked the Goplen Controllers 3-0 Tuesday night at Marshall Field #2.
The Sistas started the game with 10 players after two ladies were out with illnesses, but still came out flying when Andrea Zubot scored on a penalty kick to the top corner from 30 yards out.
Jessica Garro celebrated her birthday by deking a defender and cranking one into the Controllers’ net. She was also playing forward for the first time and had several rushes and a few shots.
In the second half, the Sistas moved a few defenders up to play forward and it immediately paid off. Bobbi Catt founding a dashing Garro, who ran in from the 18 and placed a nice shot in the corner.
Leslie Williams battled through a lower body injury and Wendy Nadeau earned the shutout.
Emma Louie was Goplen’s Player of the Match for her hard work digging up front on forward and also on the backline. Michelle Mercer played a solid game up front and Jacquie Nuyens, Michele Wernicke, and Krista Backer all had some nice scoring opportunities but just could not find the back of the net.
Jodi Peshko, Sena Bishop, and Shawn Yargeau created some nice passes throughout the midfield to distribute the ball up the field.
Michelle Embleton was solid in net and made some fantastic saves.
