Stars slam Kal Tire

The Silver Stars brushed off Kal Tire 4-0 in an Okanagan Men’s 55+ Soccer League derby match Thursday

The Silver Stars brushed back Kal Tire 4-0 in an Okanagan Men’s 55+ Soccer League derby match Thursday night at MacDonald Park.

Nigel Klack, John Matejicka, Kenny Rath and Mark Hopkins, on a penalty kick, handled the offence for the 11-5-1 Stars. Hopkins took the PK after defender Grant Badgero committed a foul inside the 18.

Kal Tire central midfielder Denis Chabot just missed on two Grade A scoring chances on a night where he was working his final graveyard shift at the mill. Tom Ouchi and Kevin Mitchell set up Chabot in tight on keeper Yogi Kongsdorf.

Central midfielder Jim Sparrow took the Red Robin Man of the Match for the Tiremen (4-14), while outside fullback Tim Penaluna earned the Falkland Motor Hotel Man of the Match for the Stars.

Young Cole Shoemaker did a stellar job as referee in a card-free game.

Peter Toth scored twice as host Penticton TC United doubled the Summerland Rockets 4-2 at Kings Park.

Tony Munoz and Gord McLaren supplied singles for Penticton (9-8-1), while Andy Burt bagged both goals for Summerland (10-8).

The North Country Kickers shelled Kelowna Vintage 10-0 in other 55+ play Thursday night.

Matt Cherrille, Fritz Berenyi, Steve Frost and Will Kruiper each converted twice, while Tony Spadatora and Vincio Delgado contributed singles as North Country improved to a league-best 16-1-1. Vintage dropped to 0-18.

Meanwhile, Mission Cleaners ambushed Vernon Kal Tire 9-1 in Kelowna Tree Brewing Men’s 35+ League play.

The Tiremen finished last and will visit second-place Penticton in playoff action next Thursday night at Kings Park.
