The AF Blazers bounced the Do-Itt Drywall Mudd Sharks 4-1 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Division I play Tuesday night at Marshall Field #5.

Krista Ference, Hannah Nesbitt, Shantell Hayhurst and Sarah Nelson, assisted by defender Amber Maltman, handled the Blazer attack. Hayhurst bicycle kicked her goal into the net.

“Everyone played very well and had an awesome last game of the season,” said Hayhurst.

Briggs, Finley boost Reds’ attack

First-place Peacock Sheridan Group of Kelowna closed their season by shutting down the Ball Blasters 8-1 at smoky MacDonald Park.

PSG took the league title at 16-2 with the tandem of Lindsey Briggs and Lana Finley combining for seven of the eight goals versus the Blazers, with Cheyenne Dedla adding her ninth of the season.

Briggs bagged 25 goals on the season, while Finley finished with 22.

The Ball Blasters opened the scoring on a partial breakaway beating Reds’ keeper Jenna Cole.  PSG answered with 4 goals in each time shortened  half.

Both teams played short of 11 players. Nicole Berns was tireless on defence and in midfield for the Reds.

Acrobatic Reid jumpstarts Celtics

The North Enderby Timber Celtics finished the season by grounding Glenn Power United of Salmon Arm 4-2 at MacDonald Park.

United opened the scoring on an 20-yard bender just under the crossbar, leaving Celtic keeper Carly Smith no chance.

The Celtics responded with striker Tori Reid beating a defender in the box before feeding Ashley Krause for the tap in.

In identical fashion as her first snipe, a Glenn Power player made it 2-1.

The Celtics then mirrored their opening goal with Reid again dancing around defenders like a rythmic gymnast before setting up Krause with her second of the game.

The Celtics picked it up in the second half, making some positional changes in order to deal with having no subs. The new striker duo of Smith and Casey Benz took over in the second half. Benz started it off after a give and go with Smith.

Benz sent Smith in on a breakaway only to be denied by a beautiful save by the keeper, but Benz was there to capatalize on the rebound.

Smith then got some revenge curling one around the outstretched keeper.

Daylinn Moesker and Debbie Henderson were all-stars on the Celtic backline, battling the smoke and shutting down United in the second half. Reid earned the Dairy Queen Lady of the Match with two assists and a second-half clean sheet.

Sistas brush back Merlot 5-1

In Masters play, the Adventure Bay Sistas ambushed the Shuswap Merlot 5-1 to end their season.

Lanis Kelley threw the ball up the line to Diane Neudorf who beat a few defenders and then pelted a nice low ball into the net for the Sistas’ first goal.

Bridget Frick then sent superstar Tammy Buick spinting into shooting range where her shot deflected off a Merlot defender, Buick then buried her own rebound. Janet Beltz replied for Merlot late in the opening half.

Neudorf took a great though ball from Danise Pigeau, then turned and flicked the ball over the Merlot keeper early in the second 45.

Andrea Zubot pressured the Merlot keeper to cough up the ball and then passed back to Lynnelle Erbacker at 10 yards out and Erbacker recorded fhr 4-1 goal.

The final goal came as Zubot sent Dani Moffat on a run up the centre and Moffat nailed a 25-yard corker top cheddar.

Bobbi Catt, Frick, Melanee Skinner, and Kelley held down the defence in front of keeper Wendy Nadeau, while Debra Rosher, Moffat, Nadine Danyluk and Nancy Bandy all delivered some splendid passes.
