Vernon Kal Tire and West Kelowna ran to a scoreless draw in Okanagan Men’s 55+ Soccer League play Thursday night at MacDonald Park.
Kal Tire keeper Pete (The Heat) Richter recorded several huge saves to take the Interior Logging Association Man of the Match.
Striker Gord Howard had a breakaway in the 17th minute, but lost control of the ball as he deked West Kelowna keeper Harold Schock. West Kelowna is first at 5-0-1, followed by the Tiremen at 4-0-2.
The Silver Stars clipped Lake Country 2-1 with Bill Borg breaking the deadlock with a scorcher from 40 yards, almost on the left touchline.
In the second half Paul McCardle made it 2-0 after a little dribble. Lake Country got a second wind after a defensive error gifted them a goal. The Stars are 3-3, the Lakers 1-5.
The Fantastic Four brushed back the Green Rockets 3-1 in Division II women’s play Thursday night at Marshall #5.
Defender-turned-striker Delaney Ross, with a deuce, and Taylor Weixl supplied the Fab Four offence in front of Kris Ponto, who allowed one goal in the late going.
Jackie Kersey was marvellous in the Fab Four midfield, while Nathalie Messner was hot stuff up front, applying great pressure on the Rocket keeper.
The Fab Four lost Richelle Seguin (ankle) and Ruth Delisle (calf) to injuries in the heat.
Sunterra Sistas and Sir Winston’s Pub Attack battled to a 3-3 draw at Marshall #5.
Amber Arnold one-timed a beautiful line drive to Diane Neudorf, who beat the last defender and calmly shot low corner to record Sistas’ first goal.
After lots of back and forth action and excellent controlled passing by the Sistas, Krista Gutknecht sent a sweet through ball to Kim Sylvester, who went high over the keeper’s hands.
Neudorf and Sylvester played keep-away in the Attack zone until Sylvester found the back of the net for the 3-1 go-ahead tally. Brandy Wejr scored the Attack’s first goal.
Shelby Fisher of Sir Winnie’s scored twice in the last five minutes, getting the equalizer in the dying seconds. Soul Sista of the Match Cara Van Tol sparkled for the orange girls.
Michelle Mulholland, Jennie Currie, and Crystal Flasch were solid on the back line while Amanda Gaythorpe, Miranda Dalhuisen, and Carmen Kinniburgh created lots of excitement through the middle.
Wendy Nadeau continues to play with strength and confidence in net.
