Timber knock out NOD

North Enderby Timber grounded Auto Quest Nation of Domination 2-1 in NOSL play Wednesday night

North Enderby Timber grounded Auto Quest National of Domination 2-1 in North Okanagan Soccer League play Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2.

The Timber (12-2-1) owned possession the whole game and took an early lead when Omeet Khatra split the defenders and was denied by the NOD keeper but Khatra kept his cool, controlled the rebound and chipped it over the scrambling keeper.

NOD levelled the score with two minutes left in the first half from a tight angle after a defensive miscue.

The Timber kept applying pressure in the final 45 and capitalized in the 70th minute. Khatra dribbled the ball in the midfield and curled a shot like a comma over the keeper and under the bar from 30 yards for the winner.

Evan Frederick and Danny Stein then locked down the backline for the Timber. Brodie Couch made the save of the game by sliding in and denying NOD the tying goal with 10 minutes left. Sterner Depner earned the win with a solid performance in the Timber net. NOD dropped to 8-5-1.

First-place Monashee Surveying FC brushed back the last-place Salmon Arm GM Outlaws 4-2 at Marshall Field #1.

Cameron Hitch pocketed two goals, including a gorgeous volley off a deflection inside the 18, for the Surveyors (13-3-). Albert Goldnick, on a penalty kick, and Mo Singogo, on a free kick, completed the Monashee offence. The Outlaws fell to 2-11.
