Bosman stump winless Rutland

Bosman Accounting beat Rutland Spirit 3-1 in Capri Insurance Okanagan Oldtimers 45+ Soccer League action Monday at Marshall Field

Playing a good possession game helped Bosman Accounting beat Rutland Spirit 3-1 in Capri Insurance Okanagan Oldtimers 45+ Soccer League action Monday at Marshall Field.

After a scoreless first half, Carl McLennan went on a run on the left wing five minutes into the second half and crossed it in to Rolf Hirschkorn who finished in the low left corner to give Bosman (2-10-1) the opening goal.

Rutland (0-14-0) put more pressure on the Bosman defense but the accountants’ back line of Dan Rogers, Danny Pawsey, Kilmer Hagen and Gerard Geelkerken was very solid.

Ten minutes in the second half Vernon Topsport’s man of the match, Hirschkorn, scored a beautiful second goal from 25 yards out.

The Spirit responded with a goal before Erick Burnet scored Bosman’s third goal on an assist by James Cotter after a scramble in the Rutland box.

In Rutland, Bryan Schenker scored times, with assists to Brad Conlin and Shawn Wiebe, as the Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos blanked Cantina’s 5-0.

The Ogopogos’ (7-6-1) passing game was on, and controlled much of the play throughout the contest.

Rick Danyluk, after breaking the seal with his first goal last week off his chest, finally connected with a beauty kick this week to complete the scoring.

Newbie Tim Clarke playing net was solid and consistent in recording the shut out while Ogopogos defender Dan Ondzik finally was able to play out after filling in for many games for injured keeper Brian Cope and played quite admirably, deserving honorable mention.

Okanagan Spring Brewery Camels blanked a short-handed North Country Appraisals Kickers squad 2-0 at the Rutland Fields.

Rick Raber scored both goals for the Camels, now 9-4-1 on the year.

His first came on a header three minutes into the game – and 2:15 after he missed an identical chance – when he was left alone by the North Country defence to score on a header off a John Davies cross.

Raber added the insurance marker with 15 minutes remaining after Darren Hansen stripped the ball at half, found John Orton who sent a through ball to Raber. He scored on a blast from 20 yards.

Dave Dutcher recorded the clean sheet and Paul Morgan was the Wayside man of the match with great control at midfield, then switched back to defence following an injury and played great back there as well.

John Padgett scored three times in the opening half as Penticton downed the Vernon Silver Stars 6-1 at Beasley Field in Lake Country.

Andrew Whiston, off a feed from Denis Chabot, scored for the Stars, who fall to 5-7-2.

Elsewhere, Brown Benefits downed Sunshine Pools and RPM defeated Brandt’s Creek, both games ending 4-1.
