Rosters Sports Club dispatched the Adventure Bay Sistas 4-1 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters play Tuesday night at Marshall Field #5.

Kate Ball opened the Rosters’ offence with following goals coming from Emily Hoag, Daralee Morris, and Michelle Connolly.

Peggy Schepp was awarded the Lavington Turf Farms Lady of the Match for Rosters for her hard work up front.

Andrea Zubot sent a free kick to Diane Neudorf, who with her back to the net and defenders all around, did a little tap to the side then a spin kick to plaster the ball into the back of the net for the Sistas’ goal.

Sistas welcomed Lanis Kelley back from injury and she played like a rock star with booming kicks and smart plays all night long.

Dairy Queen Lady of the Match for the Sistas was keeper Wendy Nadeau, who got a little love from the Rosters ladies as she was presented with a Rosters gift card for her outstanding play.

Sistas had 11 players show while Rosters had nine subs. It was a fun game by both teams with lots of excellent sportsmanship and camaraderie.

Squires Four Pub upended the Vernon Liquor Store VQAs 5-2 at Grahame Park.

The Squires opened the scoring when Sarah Green found Jennie Currie on a through ball. Currie turned around and blasted it home.

Currie added her second goal when Deanna Baker sent her down the right wing. After out running the final defender, she threadded the needle from a sharp angle and into the back of the net.

The VQAs posted their first goal when Tania Willett fed the mighty Harmony Crockett, who dished off to the ultra-talented Teresa Collins, who placed a nice ball for the header from curly-top Sue​ McKinnon.

Lori Shippy was taken down in the box and the Squires were awarded a penalty kick. Barb Levesque stepped up and cranked it low to the corner.

Levesque buried her second when Shippy two-stepped around a defender and crossed it to Levesque who was waiting in perfect position in the box to give the Squires some insurance.

Braided warrior Cheryl Roddis recorded the final VQA snipe on a breakaway, sprint and a great deke past the Squires keeper.

Sue Barss was in the VQA net for the first half, while Carla Gibson was keeper in the final half.

The Vernon Chick Kickers grounded Shuswap Kaos 3-1 at Marshall #1.

The Chicks’ first goal was supplied by Jenny Garnett, after Tania Sladen brought the ball up the right side and completed a gorgeous cross into the 18. Sladen followed up her assist by scoring the second goal before the break.

With the Chicks leading 2-0 going into the second half,  Kaos came out with an obvious determination to even the score.

Much of the second half play was in the Chicks’ defensive end, with many deep through-ball attempts made by Kaos, and several off-side calls. Marilyn VanderDeen, Shauna Duncan, Wendy Magnus, and Jessica Tanner were nearly impenetrable on defense, as Robyn Sherwood scrambled to shut down the Kaos offence during several close-call plays.

Kudos went to Kaos for their untouched corner kick goal, a flawless hit that came in deep to the six and curved inside just in time to meet the back of net.

The remainder of the match was a head-to-head battle, but the Chicks used their skills and passing game to maintain control.

After several near misses by strikers Mel Jacobs and Jenn Kemper, the latter connected on an unstoppable shot to the far side on the Kaos keeper. Special mention went to Michelle Loxam and Lisa Lanaway for their inside games, and to Sharon Storms for excellent challenges and hard work on the wing.

In Division 1 play, the AF Blazers bounced the Ball Blasters 4-0 at Marshall #2.

Goals were scored by Krista Ference, Alyssa Ward, Hannah Nesbitt and Aspen Kozak.
