The Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos clipped Tree Brewing FC 1-0 in Capri Insurance Men’s 45+ Soccer League play Monday night at Beasley Park in Lake Country.
Bryan Schenker delivered a great rush and shot only to be denied by the Tree keeper. The rebound came out to Mark Wasylyk, who took his time before he converted into the corner late in the opening half.
The Brewers (6-5-1) applied heavy pressure in the first 10 minutes of the final 45 before Turn-Key (9-2) started a nice possession game that gave them several chances.
The Pogo defenders, led by birthday boy Steve Coombs, and injured rookie Jason Beck, kept the Tree attack to a minimum. Special props went to Clint Dickinson playing centre midfield for some amazing passes and shots. Rookie Bobby Zalcik received the shutout.
Penticton TC Auto United brushed back the Okanagan Spring Brewery Camels 3-0 at Marshall Field #5.
Fullback Brian Johnston worked a couple of give-and-goes deep into Camel territory before toe-poking a shot past keeper Ron Krause at 46 minutes. Mike Beliveau added two tallies in the final 20 minutes, one off a gorgeous half-volley to the corner from the 18. Penticton also struck the post four times and were stoned by Krause on four shots from the six-yard box.
Gigi Moldovan and Jim Hutchinson each rang up deuces as Mission Cleaners mauled Bosman Accounting 6-0 at Marshall #1.
Moldovan leads the league with 15 snipes. Chris Messent and Junior Anderson supplied the other goals for Mission (7-4-1). The host Revelstoke Stallions dispatched Peters Tirecraft 4-2 in a make-up North Okanagan Soccer League game Sunday.

Revelstoke (2-7) came back with some great ball movement and set pieces to make it 3-1 at the half despite missing a penalty shot. Strothers struck again from the left side midway through the second half capping off great buildup play by Brock Reim and Mike Conlin.
