Kal Tire clipped the Silver Stars 2-1 in a Vernon derby match in Okanagan Men’s 50+ Soccer League play Thursday night at Marshall Field #3.

Mike Lloyd and Denis Chabot scored for the Tiremen, while John Matejka converted with 10 minutes left for the Stars.

Stars’ defender Leo Nadeau, the Sleeman’s Man of the Match on the back four, came out of nowhere to block a Chabot shot from a yard in the second half.

Stars’ keeper Dave Gould made a sweet diving save on a Rob Parkin penalty kick.

Tiremen defender Jim McEwan ran miles, battled hard against striker Rob Ross and earned the Wendy’s Man of the Match.
