Routley ignites United attack

Without several regulars, the Vernon Tolko United stuffed the host Revelstoke Avalanche 5-0

Without several regulars, the Vernon Tolko United stuffed the host Revelstoke Avalanche 5-0 in Thompson Okanagan Under 14 Girls Rep Soccer League play Sunday.

Substitute keepers Jordyn Morris and Olivia Tymkiw shared the clean sheet, while goals came from Brooklyn Routley (2), Morgan Boisvert, Tymkiw, Emma Baycroft and Brooklyn Routley.

The U12 Strikers enjoyed a great Sunday in Salmon Arm, defeated Kelowna F 2-0 and drawing 2-2 with Kelowna B.

Makenna Doyle opened the scoring in the 10th minute versus Kelowna F, burying a laser from 25 yards top right corner. Just 15 minutes later, Doyle converted off a feed from Cassidy Bocking at midfield.

Joelle Kohtala, Tori Maltman and Ashley Befus shut down all the Kelowna attacks, while Jesse Mitchell and Lauren Hoard were stellar in net. Amy Curtis and Jordyn Clark were noted for their tireless running in midfield.

Game 2 was a wild affair with Kelowna taking a 1-0 lead at three minutes and the score remained the same until the final 10 minutes.

In a bold coaching move, Maltman was put up front due to her tenacious drive to get the ball. Maltman and the coaches Rolf Hirschkorn and Brent Bond were rewarded in the 50th minute when she scored off a corner, finishing left back side.

Kelowna went ahead four minutes later before Doyle scored with less than a minute left, shooting from the left side and beating the Kelowna keeper at the near post.

“It was a well deserved tie”, said Striker coach Rolf Hirschkorn, who noted Aimee Skinner for dominating the centre of the park and Kirsten Brown for her tenacity and runs down the right flank.

Ashlee Befus and Joelle Kohtala sparkled on the back line.
