Topsport FC clipped Kal Tire FC 4-3 in Vernon Men’s Indoor Soccer League play Wednesday night at the VantageOne Indoor Centre.
Topsport extended their winning streak to three games as Finlay McPhie of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack made his debut.
The game was kicked off with end to end action, as both teams displayed beautiful passing plays. A Topsport attack led to some fancy footwork by Fabrice Fanfani, who fooled two defenders before burying a left-footed shot in the bottom right corner. It was Fanfani’s sixth goal of the season.
Kal Tire countered and equalized top cheddar before Tosport fired back with a beautiful spell of one-touche play that was finished off by McPhie playing the ball across goal to Lendrit Ademi.
Kal Tire struck back again with another counter attack with keeper David Weir making two stops but getting beat on the third attempt.
The second half was even more intense with more end to end action as Topsport struck six posts and one crossbar.
The final five minutes featured incredible action by both sides. Ademi’s header sailed over the keeper but connected with the crossbar yet again, however he showed a killer finish on the rebound. Ademi has four goals in just two games.
Topsport dropped back a few players to protect the lead but Kal Tire levelled the score on another rebound. With only two minutes left, Topsport pushed players forward and an Enzo Paal corner was met by a lethal header from Perez Vermeulen for the winner.
