Kal Tire FC double up Beer Badgers

Vernon Kal Tire FC downs Salmon Arm Beer Badgers 4-2 in Kelowna Men's 35+ Soccer League action in the Shuswap

Vernon Kal Tire FC got back to their winning ways Thursday.

The squad travelled to the Little Mountain sports field with 13 players and played their fourth-string goalie, and came away with a 4-2 decision over the Salmon Arm Beer Badgers in Kelowna Mens 35+ Soccer League action.

The tiremen (14-1-2) opened the scoring when Glenn Allan had the ball and made a couple of moves, then found Rodney Goodchild who used his ‘Okanagan Spirits’ to curl the ball past the Salmon Arm keeper.

The Badgers (4-11-1) replied a few minutes later on a corner kick that found a Salmon Arm forward’s head to tuck it in on the back post by the – follow this – backup to the backup to the backup Kal Tire keeper, Jason Beck.

The Vernon squad came back with a goal from Jesse Knight, from Ryan Sharp.

Bryan Schenker and Darren Nobrega scored in the second half for Kal Tire, which received solid defense from Sharp, Johnson, Dave Dobernigg and Pedro Garro that really limited the action Beck saw.

n Vernon Silver Stars kicked Kelowna’s North Country Appraisals Kickers 7-0 in a battle of two teams tied for third place in the Okanagan Oldtimers 55+ Soccer League in Kelowna Thursday.

Brian Eso and Liverpool-loaner Phil McNally each supplied hat tricks for the Stars with Paul McCardle adding the seventh marker.

Ray Tims recorded the shutout.

The Stars improve to 9-5-0, while the Kickers drop to 7-4-3.

In Lake Country, Vernon Kal Tire blanked the host Beasley FC 2-0 at Reiswig Park.

Terry Lowe opened the scoring in the 56th minute with a quick turn and rifled a low shot to the far corner. Denis Chabot drew an assist.

Mark DeVolder added the insurance for the tiremen (7-5-2) one minute from time, with Ken Rath and Jim Sparrow setting up the marker.

Beasley’s striker-turned keeper Fred Laurisen was fabulous with a handful of diving saves.


Subway Man of the Match for Kal Tire was defender Paul Goodgrove.
