Timber take down MFC
North Enderby Timber shut down Monashee Surveying 3-0 in North Okanagan Soccer League action Wednesday night at MacDonald Park.
NET dominated the match with multiple scoring chances early and often, but MFC (3-6-1) dug in and kept them in check.
The Timber (6-3) finally opened the scoring late in the first when beer cooler man Greg Poggemoeller worked some nice one-two passing with Alex Farina, who was welcomed back off the injured reserve. Poggemoeller pounced on the Farina rebound.
NET, with an infusion of new young and talented players, kept creating chances. Chris Ovens, just back from some family time in Germany, streaked up the middle and dished the ball to Brent Poulsen through two defenders. Poulsen took one touch and beat keeper James Inglis low off the post from 20 yards.
The Timber third goal came when newcomer Lendrit Ademi beat a defender down the wing and placed an excellent cross into Patrick Schindler, who one-timed the ball short side past the outstretched Inglis.
Fellow newcomer Victor Gouchee earned the shutout.
MFC Burger King Man of the Match Inglis stopped Poulsen on a full-on breakaway for his best of numerous huge saves.
