The Okanagan Season Sistas iced the Goplen Drillers 2-1 in Masters Division play Tuesday night at Marshall Field #2.

The Drillers (5-9-5) took a 1-0 lead into halftime after sneaking one past Sistas’ keeper Suzyn August.

Diane Neudorf tied it for the 6-10-2 Sistas in the second half when she took a sweet cross from Lisa Geary and sniped the bottom-right corner.

Tammy Buick sent Genevieve Nice off to the races with a gorgeous through ball midway through the second half. Nice ripped down the right side and scored on a tight-angled shot.

August made several great saves and Danielle Moffat was a rock on the back line.
