With thoughts of an early-May 7-1 shellacking to RPM Automotive in their heads, the Okanagan Spring Brewery Camels delivered some payback Monday night at Marshall Field #4.

Midfielder Eric Ladner scored twice and keeper Kelly Schley was a rock star as the Camels grounded RPM 4-2 in Capri Insurance Men’s Soccer League play.

Marty Steele of the Humpbacks converted a tap-in from gimme range at 15 minutes, assists from Rick Raber and Johnny Orton.

Orton then picked off an RPM throw-in and nailed a corker off the post and the keeper’s shins at 22 minutes.

Ladner connected on a penalty kick after a hand ball infraction for the third goal. RPM finally beat Schley before Ladner bured a sweet free kick top cheddar.

Schley, whose knees betrayed him more than a decade ago and are held together with Elmer’s Glue and duct tape, earned the On The Roxx Man of the Match with some marvellous stops.

Darren Hansen was bold in central midfield as the Camels improved to 5-5-2. RPM dipped to 4-4-2.

Vernon Bosman Accounting ran to a 2-2 draw with Kelowna Cantinas Pub at Marshall #3.

Cantina keeper Wayne Logan preserved the tie with an acrobatic finger-tip save off Bosman central fullback Mike Grace in the late going. Logan also stuffed Paul McCardle in tight with minutes remaining.

McArdle nodded in a long free kick from Kerry Correia, while Laurent Dansereau got the second Bosman snipe on a scramble. Gerard Geelkerken struck the Cantina post on a 25-yard slow roller after he beat Logan to a loose ball.

Grace dominated the back line, getting Air Canada support from towering Dan Rogers, as Bosman improved to 2-8-2. Ageless Glen Heagle and Archie MacDonald enjoyed solid outings for Cantinas (3-5-4), who got goals from Victor Lima and Carl Withler.

Despite a threatening storm and a nearby car crash just as kick-off was taking place, Mind Smart maintained focus producing their best form of the season in a 7-0 win over Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos at Parkinson Field #9.

The Smart (4-7-1) finally demonstrated lots of passing and good man marking and even the 50-50 balls were bouncing the Smart’s way on this night.

The scoring stated early and continued through both halves. Sergio Sartori opened in the 10th minute with a nice strike after darting down the wing for his first of two.  Neil MacNeil then got his first of three goals on the night.  Grant Heindl and Clay McLeod supplied singles.

Turn-Key (3-8) pressed hard to break the shutout striking the post in the final 10.  Smart keeper David Gadd had to make a few tricky saves in his first clean sheet.

Defender Parm Kler was the Sleeman’s Man of the Match for the Pogos.

Brown Benefits brushed back Mission Cleaners 3-2 in a battle of heavyweights at Mission Sportsfields #10.

Chris Messent opened the scoring at 10 minutes for Mission off a header as the Brown’s defence was caught napping.

Kelly Beauchamp got his head on a corner kick by Gord Brown for the equalizer before  Tony Gonazales was brought down in the box and Don Brown converted the penalty to put Browns (11-0-1) up 2-1 at the half.

In the second half, two Mission players, Joachom Nierfeld and Gigi Moldovan,  were ejected for picking up their second yellow cards.

Steve Fagan nailed a rocket past keeper  Andy Jopling to make it 3-1 Browns but Mission got one back on a nifty play by Robert Teves.

Playing with just nine players, the 7-4 Cleaners gave Browns all they could handle down the stretch. Colin Burton played well in net for Browns as their two other keepers were away or injured.

Brandt’s Creek moved past the Cleaners into sole possession of third place by dispatching the Pushor Mitchell Rented Mules 4-0 at Mission #12.

Blair Gautschi put the Pubbers up 1-0 at the half.

Johnny Fletcher converted early in the second half, while  Keith Seager and Glenn McRae rounded out the scoring as Bransdt’s improved to 7-4-1. Andy Miller, deputizing for the absent Dave Rundle, earned the shutout. The Mules fell to 0-8-4.

Second-place Penticton United stuffed  Soccer United 6-2 at Parkinson #16.

Soccer United had some good luck to only be down 2-0 at half-time as Penticton controlled most of the play.

Soccer United got their act together and made a game of it in the final 45. However, their luck turned bad, as they hit a post and a crossbar. Their luck turned worse on three of 9-0-2 Penticton’s four second-half goals.

A Soccer United defender fell after getting tangled up with the ball carrier, allowing him to walk in from 10 yards out; a weak shot changed direction after hitting a defender’s foot; and a three-person swarm resulted in a penalty shot.

Dave Notte fired a top-corner rocket from 30 yards and Brian Sanders put in a rebound from a corner  to score for Soccer United (3-5-3).

Penticton snipers were Yann Calmets, with two, Sean Goodsell, Steve Grant and Robert Jackson.
