Tiremen settle for draw with West Kelowna

Vernon Kal Tire tie West Kelowna 3-3 in Okanagan Men’s 50+ Soccer League play Thursday night at MacDonald Park.

Vernon Kal Tire came within three minutes of earning three points, but settled for one as they drew West Kelowna 3-3 in Okanagan Men’s 50+ Soccer League play Thursday night at MacDonald Park.

West Kelowna equalized on a late penalty kick after a player was taken down inside the 18.

Mike Lloyd powered the Kal Tire attack with a pair of goals, both set up by Blue Ox Man of the Match Denis Chabot.

Kenny Rath supplied Vernon’s other strike on a terrific individual run that ended with him cutting across centre and burying one post-and-in against the flow of play.

Former Philadelphia Flyers’ enforcer Glen Cochrane was a physical presence on the West Kelowna back line.

The Vernon Stars vs Kelowna Kickers tilt, set for Thursday at Quarry Park, was cancelled as the host Kickers were unable to field a full roster.
