Browns benefit in second half

Kelowna squad scores four to post 4-0 win over Bosman Accounting

A strong second half propelled Brown Benefits to a 4-0 win over Bosman Accounting in Capri Insurance Okanagan Oldtimers 45+ Soccer League A Division action Monday at Marshall Field.

The accountants set up a resilient defensive shape, frustrating the Browns throughout the first half, and keeping it goalless until the break.

The Browns countered with a more attacking formation and finally broke through with four unanswered markers.

Browns keeper Steven Heiss recorded the shutout, which included a marvelous save from close range on Bosman centre midfielder Andrew Whiston, who was named Bosman’s Dubai Dairy Queen Man of the Match.

As always, Bosman keeper Yogi Kongsdorf made several outstanding saves.

At Beasley Park in Lake Country, Chris Arneson’s late goal helped the Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos salvage a 2-2 draw with Mission Cleaners of Kelowna in A Div. play.

Bryan Schenker opened the scoring with his 14th goal of the year, connecting nicely on a great pass from Mark Wasylyk.

Fill-in keeper Stephen Fitzpatrick had no chance to stop either of the shots that got past him.

Turn-Key controlled most of the first half, and had a lot of chances but were continually frustrated during the match.

In B Div. play, Kelowna RPM scored a 6-0 win over the Okanagan Spring Brewery Camels at Parkinson Field, in a match the referee called with 10 minutes left due to a handful of injuries that left both teams scrambling for healthy bodies.

The Camels began the game with just nine players and a 10th arrived after RPM built up a 2-0 lead, which they took into the second half.

The home side scored twice more before Camels keeper Ron Krause (quad) and defender John Farina (groin) went down with injuries, leaving the Humpbacks with eight players. Kelowna’s keeper offered to play for the Camels, and his team scored two goals on him for a 6-0 lead before RPM’s replacement keeper got hurt, which prompted the ref to call the match.

In a makeup game Sunday, Vernon Kal Tire fell 5-1 to Salmon Arm Beer Badgers in Kelowna Tree Brewing Co. Men’s 35+ League play in the Shuswap.

The Badgers got two late goals in the first half on poor plays by Tiremen defenders. In the second half, the home side caught a break when Kal Tire keeper Bobby Zalcik came out on a 50-50 ball but was a bit late and clipped a Salmon Arm forward. Zalcik was red-carded for the play as the last man back.

Rodney Goodchild donned the keeper’s kit and was stormed for about eight minutes and three goals.

The Tiremen got a goal from Glenn Allan to spoil keeper Brad Young’s shutout bid.
