Randy’s Rockets upset Sunterra Custom Homes Sistas 4-1 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer League Division 2 play Thursday night at Marshall Field #5.

Maria Thorlakson, Torren Huntley, Sam Audley and Lia Ciotoli scored for the Rockets (4-6-2), who snapped the 6-1-5 Sistas’ undefeated streak at 11 games. The Sistas had lots of shots, but couldn’t buy a goal. Deanna Baker was relentless up front, hitting the post a few times.

Baker crossed one to Madison Demers, whose shot was stopped by the keeper and the rebound came to Andrea Zubot, who took a try. A defender deflected the ball back to Demers who buried the Sistas’ goal.

Sharina Zantingh was the Boston Pizza Lady of the Match at stopper, while Becky Birbilis played well in net.

In other action, NOU ambushed Centerline Attack 8-0 at Marshall #4.

Jennilee Jellicott and Sandy Thiessen each scored twice for NOU (6-2-4), while defender Pat Nielson scored one. Dar Wiese earned the shutout, getting solid support from youth call-up Kaylee Barss.

Stephanie Paull and Dana Dimmick shared the 2-9-1 Centreline goalkeeping, while some great forward pushes were turned in by newcomer Lisa Tenowski in the midfield. Natalie Lussin was sharp at midfield/forward in her final game before heading to South America for the summer.

In over 50s men’s soccer action, Mike Lloyd scored a pair of second-half goals as Kal Tire rallied to tie the Kelowna Kickers 2-2 at Kettle Valley Field.

Bruce McAuliffe and Fred Molzahn, on a penalty kick, gave the Kickers an early lead. Jenne Huberts drew assists on both of Lloyd’s tallies with keeper Pete Richter using a booming 50-yard boot to set up the first goal.

Lloyd, whose rocket 20-yard free kick was blocked nicely by keeper Kelly Biffard, was named the Carl’s Jr. Man of the Match. Biffard also dove to get his fingertips on a slow rolling shot by Jim Sparrow. Kal Tire is 7-5-1.

The Silver Stars lost 3-1 to Penticton at Constable Neil Bruce School Field in West Kelowna.

Central defenders Rob Ross and Al Bensmiller did not complain about lack of exercise for the Stars (5-6-2). John Matejka clicked on a header off a great cross from Phil Fanfani for the Stars’ goal.

The Old Spice Man of the Match was stand-in keeper Dave Gould.
