Chabot torches Kelowna defence for hat trick

Vernon Kal Tire stuffed Kelowna 3-1 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League play Thursday at Mission 71 Park.

Everything Denis Chabot touched Thursday night ended up in the net.

The tireless and ageless central midfielder pulled the hat trick as Vernon Kal Tire stuffed Kelowna 3-1 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League play at Mission 71 Park.

Chabot outhustled two defenders and buried a shot from five yards after a sweet cross by defender Ted Sheehan for his first snipe.

Ian Paine equalized for Kelowna off a feed by Ray Heathcote. It was 1-1 at the half.

Chabot supplied the winner after central midfielder Jim Sparrow’s 20-yard free kick corker went off the crossbar. Chabot knocked the ball in after Terry Lowe whiffed on the first rebound attempt.

Lowe and Felix Heinrich then worked a nifty give-and-go with Chabot heading in the feed from Lowe for insurance.

Chabot took the Tolko Man of the Match with honourable mention going to defender Rob Culos. Defenders Rob Parkin and Jim McEwan were also stellar as second-half keeper Kevin Mitchell only had to make a handful of touches.

Kal Tire is 15-6-1 and finish the season next Thursday in a derby match against the Silver Stars, 3-0 losers to host Winfield.

Angus McInnes, a 70-something defender, beat Stars’ keeper Dave Gould with a penalty kick off the post.
