Newcomers lift Topsport to win

Topsport FC toppled Monashee FC 4-1 in Vernon Men’s Indoor Soccer League play Wednesday night at VantageOne Soccer Centre

Topsport FC toppled Monashee FC 4-1 in Vernon Men’s Indoor Soccer League play Wednesday night at VantageOne Soccer Centre.

Newcomers Lendrit Ademi, Enzo Paal, and Mwiza Singogo made their debuts with Topsport, who were looking to continue the momentum from last week after a great win over NET.

Topsport controlled possession and passed the ball patiently while waiting for an opening. The Monashee defence were strong and not letting anything through.

After a shot from Ademi which the Monashee keeper parried away, Fabrice Fanfani was there to bury the rebound.

The second half kicked off with more great passing play from Topsport. After a Topsport corner, Monashee countered and were able to slot in the 1-1 equalizer.

Topsport struck back harder and pulled back ahead after Fanfani finished a beautiful 180-degree, left-footed spinning volley, his fifth of the season.

Later on, Ademi converted twice, one of which was a cheeky chip finish.

In the last minute, a Monashee defender was sent off after being shown a second yellow card for a dangerous challenge on Paal.
