The Dr. Lee Dental/Squires Four Pub battled to a 1-1 draw against TED United Tuesday night at Marshall Field #4.
The heavyweight battle featured the top teams in the North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters Division.
Scoreless at the half, Jacquie Hansen intercepted an errant United pass and blasted home Dr. Lee’s goal from 25 yards.
Keeper Lisa Arrotta surrendered her first goal of the season when TED (5-1-1) capitalized on a Dr. Lee (6-0-1) defensive miscue.
Friendly fire sinks Sistas
Okanagan Season’s Sistas brushed back Vernon Square Liquor Store VQA 3-1 at Marshall #3.
VQA (2-4-1) scored all the goals, unfortunately, as three of them were like own goals.
Diane Neudorf got credit for the first two goals for the Sistas (2-5) and Lisa Geary was rewarded for the third.
Jane Higgins was the only VQA player to put it in her opponent’s net. Her beautiful lob from mid centre floated over the keeper’s head.
Team effort for Impact
The Gray Monk/Longhorn Impact stopped the Shuswap Kaos 4-1 at Marshall #2.
The Kaos (1-5) took an early lead, but the Impact (4-1-2) responded with four-straight goals from Suzie McGuigan, Alicia McCreary, Dawn Heiss and Minda Chittenden.
McGuigan scored in her first game back and Chittenden buried hers on a penalty kick.
Jacobs pours it on in second half
The Chick Kickers flattened Shuswap Merlot 7-1 at MacDonald Park.
Jenny Garnett opened the scoring on a cross from Jen Sorochuck, as Michelle Johnson and Jen Kemper added goals in the first half.
Mel Jacobs drained a bottle of green Gatorade at the break and then blew the game wide open with three goals for the Chick Kickers (5-1-1) in the second half, as Johnson, Sorochuck and Wendy Magnus recorded assists.
The Merlot (0-4-1) spoiled Crystal Bergman’s bid for a third straight shutout with a bomb from 30 yards.
Controllers blank Rosters
The Controllers shut out Rosters Sports Club 4-0 at Marshall #4.
Michele Wernicke took a nice through ball from Jacquie Nuyens and drilled it past the keeper for the Controllers’ first snipe.
The Controllers (4-1-1) added another from Wernicke to go up by two at the half.
Shawn Yargeau tucked one under the bar from 30 yards, on a great feed from Sena Bishop.
Wernicke’s corner fell to Michelle Mercer, as she beautifully one-timed it under the bar, to complete the offence.
Mickey Templeton registered the shutout. The Rosters slid to 1-6.
Celtics stop winless streak
The North Enderby Timber Celtics gained their first win of the Division 1 season by defeating the AF Blazers 2-0 at Marshall #1.
Newcomer Ayrana Jacura kickstarted the Celtic offence after Sarah Ehman played a through ball to Carly Smith, who brought in the Blazer defence and dummied the ball for Jacura, who calmy beat the keeper on a breakaway.
Still in the first half, Paige Doherty dangled through three defenders only to have keeper Chelsea Hagen make a diving save. Kim Redgwell was in perfect postion to tap in the rebound.
Doherty just graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, where she led the NCAA Bulldogs to the 2013 Great American Conference soccer title.
The Celtics (1-2-4) controlled most of the play and limited the Blazer chances. Any balls that came in the Celtic end were easily cleared by all-star sweeper Ashley Krause or gobbled up by former University of Fraser Valley Cascades’ keeper Charmaine Biagioni.
In other Division 1 play, the Little Tex Outlaws could muster only eight players and lost 7-0 to first-place Glenn Power in Salmon Arm.
Glenn Power is 5-0-1, the Outlaws 2-3-2.
