Bosman Accounting dispatched Rutland Spirit 4-0 in Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League B side playoff action.

Bosman Accounting dispatched Rutland Spirit 4-0 in Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League B side playoff action Monday night at Mission Sports Field #14 in Kelowna.

Midway through the first half, forward Gerard Geelkerken was taken down just outside the 18. Erick Burnet curved a free kick around the wall in the low left corner for the 1-0 goal.

Ten minutes later, James Cotter received a through ball from midfielder Laurent Dansereau and made it 2-0 on a hard battle.

Rutland started the second half energetic, but Mark Sladen smartly intercepted a goal kick and chipped the ball over the Rutland goalie.

Minutes later, Burnet crossed a long pass on the head of the oncoming right forward Sam Klair who completed the scoring.

Vernon Topsport’s Man of the Match was shared between fullbacks Dan Pawsey and Alex deBoersap. Yogi Kongsdorf earned the clean sheet.

Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos clipped Cantinas 1-0 in other play.

Tim Clarke made a miraculous early save for the Pogos before Roland Riedstra took a pass from Mark Wasyluk, deked the keeper but had his shot blocked by a defender.

The Pogos tweaked their lineup for the final half. Riedstra took a shot that just grazed the top bar after being moved to striker.

The rush then turned and Clarke jumped and pushed the ball to the side for a spectacular save.

After a speedy run up the right flank, Rick Danyluk crossed a beauty right to Riedstra’s head which then deflected off the top of the crossbar back into play to a waiting Nolan Clark, whose shot through a defender was tapped in for insurance.

Turn-Key is in the B final Sunday, Oct. 4 in Penticton.
