Winless Yukon Brewing needed something to change their luck in Whitehorse Rapids over-35 soccer action and they found it in Jim Brown’s lucky boots.

Old and decrepit they may be, but the transformation was amazing. Previously wayward passes started to find their target, shots that were going high and wide were hitting the back of the net and the synergy between players was evident as they ran in seven goals past an assortment of players that made up Yukon Info.com’s team.

Skipper Jim Connell got the ball rolling for Yukon Brewing with two clever goals and from then on the Brew increased their lead at regular intervals with Chris Stacey scoring two, Mark O Brien and Jim Brown adding one apiece and Ross Lindley scoring his first of the season.

Yukon Brewing will now hope to continue this winning form next week.

Maratos the Great

The top of the table clash between Pepsi and Tony’s Pizza was an epic affair matching up the two most talented squads in the league.

The game, full of incident, was taken by Pepsi 4-3 at the final whistle.

Pepsi was glad of the returning, larger than life George Maratos, who denied Tony’s strikers a clear sight of the goal.

Maratos, who has been on a Greek Odyssey and has missed the first two months of the season, brought his A game pulling off a number of smart saves.

Pepsi’s goals came from Guliano Rayo with two, Simon Pulido and the impressive Myles Dolphin.

Tony’s Pizza’s Justin Carre can consider himself unlucky to finish on the losing side, as he scored all three very well-taken goals, but they were in vain as Pepsi stretched their lead in the league standings.

It was the first loss of the season for Tony’s Pizza who will look to rebound against Yukon Brewing Nov. 25. Pepsi will take on Klondike Business Solutions in the other matchup.
