Tirecraft clipped Topsport FC 2-1 in Vernon Men’s Indoor Soccer League action Wednesday night at VantageOne Indoor Facility.
Topsport FC attacked with full force in the early minutes with Fabrice Fanfani unleashing a corker which Tirecraft keeper Ean Ross somehow managed to keep out.
Tirecraft caught a counter attack which led to a breakaway goal that was clinically tucked past Topsport keeper David Weir in the second half.
Topsport struck back even harder but once again were unable to put the ball past Ross.
A Tirecraft corner led to a cheeky back heel finish making it 2-0. In an attempt to inject some energy into the game Weir was switched for Quinzy Aarts-Roman in the midfield and with only eight minutes left, a deflected shot by Fanfani managed to creep its way into the back of the net.
Menno Burnet and Nathan Gatenby both had many solo runs which ended in powerful shots on target for Topsport. Perez Vermeulen also shone.
