Mike Conlin pulled a natural hat trick in the second half as Peters Tirecraft toppled FC Tropic 6-1 in Vernon Men’s Indoor Soccer League play Wednesday night at VantageOne Soccer Centre.

The Tiremen started with strikes from sharp shooter Brock Ream and Marcello Navajaro.

Ageless Brad Conlin added a shot from centre finding the top corner to make it 3-0.

FC Tropic pushed back but were denied by some steady defending by Gavin Brewster,  Dave Matum and Dylan Martin.

Just as the Tropics started to generate some steady attack, Mike Conlin stepped up and potted three straight goals. The Tropic finished with a late strike to deny Dean Buse the shutout.

“Overall, it was a very gentlemanly played game with minimal fouls prompting the ref to thank both teams for their sportsmanship,” said Brad Conlin.

Martin earned the tireless Tireman award for his relentless effort all night.
