Quibell jumpstarts TOFC

The Thompson Okanagan F.C. shut down Coquitlam Metro Ford 4-0 in EA Sports B.C. Premier Under 15 Boys Soccer League action

The Thompson Okanagan F.C. shut down Coquitlam Metro Ford 4-0 in EA Sports B.C. Premier Under 15 Boys Soccer League action Saturday at McArthur Island Sports Centre in Kamloops.

TOFC controlled possession from beginning to end of the game with great passing and relentless pressure. In the 35th minute, Connor Glennon (Vernon) slipped a pass in to Graeme Lewis (Prince George), who dribbled in to draw the defenders and then threaded the ball to Quibell, who tapped in the first goal.

Just before the end of the first half, Coquitlam pressed into the box and a quick flick looked dangerous but keeper Carl Vandekraats (Kelowna) snagged the attempt.

In the second half, TOFC went on a five-minute blitz and at 55 minutes, Ethan Beselt (West Kelowna) passed to Glennon, who maneuvered across the top of the box and went top shelf.

Two minutes later, TOFC (2-1-1) broke forward when Scott Cramer (Williams Lake) intercepted the ball and after a series of quick midfield passes, buried a hard, low shot.

Another two minutes later and Quinn Large (Kelowna) cut in from the right and passed to Quibell who one-timed a shot. The keeper dove and blocked the shot, but Quibell collected his rebound. Coquitlam dropped to 1-3.

Surrey United and Coastal F.C. share the top of the table at 3-0-1.

TOFC take Thanksgiving off and host the Fusion (0-3-1) Saturday, Oct. 18 at Mission Sports Fields. Kick-off is 3 p.m.

In U15 girls action, TOFC grounded Coquitlam Metro Ford 3-1 Sunday afternoon at McArthur Island.

TOFC opened the scoring in the fifth minute when Cayleigh Graham (Vernon) connected on a cross from Angelia Ostrom (Kelowna).

Graham made it 2-0 at 15 minutes to close out the first-half offence.

Coquitlam scored off a corner, but TOFC answered when Erica Lampert (Kelowna) put away a rebound from a free kick taken by Hailey Tomlin (Kelowna).  TOFC (2-2) are in fourth place. Coquitlam fell to 1-2-1.
