Burly striker Keith Chancellor scored twice as the Silver Stars shaded Kal Tire 2-1 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League play Thursday night at MacDonald Park.
The Tiremen opened the Vernon derby match scoring in the 29th minute when towering striker Mike Lloyd busted through the Stars’ defence and beat keeper Dave Gould low, far corner.
Midfielder Jim Sparrow started the play by hustling to swipe the ball off a Star and feed Dave Hampton on the right flank. Sparrow was the Southward Auto Man of the Match for the 14-6-1 Tiremen, who also got bold play from Rob Parkin.
Chancellor went low on Pete (The Heat) Richter just before the half after taking the ball on a broken play. Chancellor earlier hit the post and shot wide from in close, while Mahmoud Abelkader struck both posts on a shot from six yards.
Chancellor, who earned the A&W Man of the Match, netted the winner with about 17 minutes left on a feed from Tim Penaluna. Midfielder Steve Coombs also turned in a marvellous showing for the Stars.
