Kayla McMillan scored twice as 123Artful Paint & Sip pasted Do It Drywall 5-1 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Division 2 play Thursday night at MacDonald Park.
Dana Lazar, Amanda Penner and Lauren Wishart completed the Artful offence in front of fabulous keepers Chayse Newman and Dianne Neudorf. It was the final game of the season for both teams.

Amazing work and control came from our midfield – applause for Bailey Limb and Lauren Wishart in the centre. Our outside mids all got a workout with amazing runs from Devyn McLennan, Jade Simm and Kelsey Middleton, who played mid and defence.”
Fuller also gave major props to the sweeper/stopper combo of Laura Schmidt and Katie Wishart along with fullbacks Ariel Pyatt and Bryanna Cole.
“What a terrific positive season,” added Fuller.
