Bryan Schenker flashed some fancy dance moves to score twice as Vernon Kal Tire rolled Mission Cleaners 4-1 in Kelowna Men’s 35+ Soccer League action on a scorching Thursday night at Rutland Sports Complex.
Kal Tire went to 6-1 atop the table, while Mission dipped to 2-4-1. The Tiremen entertain Select Your Tickets next Thursday at MacDonald Park.
Kal Tire had early problems breaking through the Mission defence, but late in the half, Schenker showed some Neymar-like moves and buried the opening snipe.
In the second half, Kal Tire found its form early when Duane Dennis found Glenn Allan, who elevated his play for a great finish. A while later, Jesse Knight got through the middle, stayed onside and got the feed from Tim McGowan. Knight, despite being tripped by the keeper, got up and finished for his seventh of the year.
Kal Tire had a few chances from McGowan, Knight and Rodney Goodchild but Schenker sealed the scoring when he once again danced around his check.
The Cleaners pressed with about eight minutes to go and converted on a free kick on keeper Damian Adams.
