Fertile’s fast feet lift Timber

Kyle Fertile bagged a deuce as the North Enderby Timber dispatched Nation of Domination Eagle Homes 3-1.

Kyle Fertile bagged a deuce as the North Enderby Timber dispatched Nation of Domination Eagle Homes 3-1 in North Okanagan Soccer League play Wednesday night at MacDonald Park.

NOD took the lead midway through the first half on a breakaway as NET played their worst half of the season on the shady side of the park.

Veteran Chris Ovens rallied NET at the recess with some wise words and the Timber came out strong. Fertile stepped up in ther 50th minute and beat the Eagle Homes’ keeper on a PK after Danny Stein was robbed of a goal because of a handball on the goal line.

Fertile tallied his second of the match when Devin Laughren was robbed on a header and Fertile tapped in the rebound. Fertile set up Finlay McPhie for a tap in to round out the Timber offence.

NET leads the loop at 6-0. Eagle Homes dipped to 1-3-1.

Peters Tirecraft gave up a late goal and settled for a 1-1 draw with the Salmon Arm Outlaws at MacDonald Park.

Riley Strother buried a corker in the 35th minute on a feed by Brock Reims. Tirecraft held a big edge in possession, but the Outlaws equalized on a howitzer which got through keeper Rob Spraggs’ hands.

Strikers Andy Collins and Mike Conlin worked some unselfish magic up front for Tirecraft, whose Sleeman’s Man of the Match was sweeper Gavin Brewster.

Turn-Key Controls of Vernon fell 2-1 to the host Salmon Arm Courvas at Salmon Arm Savings & Credit Union Sports Complex.

With both sides struggling for numbers in the scorching May heat, it was a battle of attrition as both teams mounted some early pressure without success.

Courvas opened the scoring in the 35th minute on a low shot that barely beat Turn-Key keeper Gregg Douma.

Douma would make the Total Restoration Save of the Game on what looked like a sure Courvas goal shortly before half.

Turn-Key levelled the score on a gorgeous corner from Evan Moore onto the head of Preston Tucker, who combined with brother and Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Nathan, who ruled 90 per cent of air balls all night.

 

Turn-Key thought they had gone ahead on another free kick in the Courvas area shortly after but were stymied by a world-class save from the Courvas keeper. Courvas potted the winner shortly after.
