Concept Physio/Peters Tirecraft extended their North Okanagan Soccer League point streak alive by holding the Revelstoke Stallions to a scoreless draw Wednesday night at Marshall Field #4.
Both teams had some outstanding chances, but neither team was able to solve the goalkeepers. Concept’s Riley Spraggs was outstanding in earning the clean sheet. He was supported by solid play in the middle from Richard Meaney and Brock Reim, who stopped the Revelstoke transition game.
Tirecraft are 1-5-2 while the Stallions are 4-1-1.
Turn-Key FC snapped a two-game skid by doubling up Monsahee Surveying 4-2 at Marshall #2.
Monshee (2-4-1) used some nice passing to spread the 4-3 Turn-Key defence for the opening goal. Preston Tucker leveled the score on a deep blast that eluded the surveyor keeper.
Turn-Key upped the pace in the second half and were rewarded by a goal from Nolan’s Pharmasave Man of the Match Taylor Horsting. He found room on the wing after a pass from Thomas Pool, and beat the keeper short side.
Horsting collected his second shortly after, coolly converting a feed by Conan Ackert near the top of the 18.
Outside defenders Liam Eddy, Kyle Goodgrove, Sean Bonnett and Bryce Paterson were active down the wing all night, with Goodgrove using his speed to create numerous chances.
Mike Bennett rounded out the scoring for Turn-Key with a beautifully placed shot from well out after some great work and passing from Carson Haywood-Farmer and Andrew Pool.
Monashee snuck a late shot by Turn-Key keeper Gregg Douma.
North Enderby Timber cruised to a 4-0 win over the last-place Salmon Arm Outlaws in the Shuswap.
Simplyfrugal.ca Man of the Match Evan Frederick scored the first of his two goals 20 minutes in after a nifty through ball from Sean Lister. Frederick’s initial shot was stopped, but he out-hustled the defenders and made good on the rebound.
Lister then controlled a cross from Brent Poulsen and faked out the keeper, only to cheekily chip it over him from inside the six to make it 2-0 for NET (4-3).
Early in the second half, Andy Stein targeted a streaking Poulsen off a free kick deep in the timber zone. Poulsen outran the 0-7 Outlaw defence and beat the keeper far side.
Frederick capped off the offence with his second goal against his old team on a breakaway late in the second half. Brandon Enair beat a defender to send in Frederick. Danny Stein and Brynden Buckham shared the one-save shutout.
A defensive miscue in the opening minute was all the Salmon Arm Courvas needed to secure a 1-0 win over Riot FC at Marshall #1.
The Riot crew is 2-4-2, while Courvas improved to 7-1.
The Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels fell 3-2 to the host Nation of Domination Eagle Homes in Salmon Arm.
The 4-3-1 Camels had plenty of chances, and were denied by the woodwork three times. Humpback goals came from Nick Pantaleo and Keenan Jespersen off some swift passing from Damian Adams and Enzo Paal.
A lapse in concentration for about 15 minutes in the second half led to goal for NOD, who are now 4-1-1.
