Rona are the kings of Penticton Masters’ Indoor Soccer League playoffs.

They captured the A final with a 10-8 victory over OK Awards Plus, the Hometown Cup regular season champs, Sunday afternoon in the Adidas SportsPlex.

Rona had a 3-0 lead eight minutes in and didn’t look back. Kevin Kothlow led Rona’s attack with six goals and assisted on another, while Don Russell, Mike Beliveau, Dave Killick and Erick Thompson also dented the twine. Beliveau also had four assists. Zico Pescada led the offensive charge for OK Awards Plus scoring three goals and assisting on four. Also scoring for OK Awards Plus were Brian Johnston with three, Andy Burt and Harry Higson with singles.

Penticton Lock and Key took the consolation final by doubling up TC Auto Sales 6-3. Lock and Key received help from three unaffiliated players (Veselka, Russell and Murray McMichael). Thanks to some acrobatic saves by Lock and Key Tom McGill came out of the game as an unexpected winner. Lock and Key’s offence came from Joe Kandola and Vlado Zamecnik with two each, Patrick Buchanan and Veselka with singles. Zamecnik collected three assists. Peter Toth potted a hat-trick for TC Auto Sales. Setting up goals for TC Auto Sales were Mike Weckel, Paul Borba, Mark McKinlay and Les Loadwick.
