Simon Pulido is like a vintage wine, he gets better with age, and on Saturday in over 35’s soccer action he showed just how good he is.
Pulido used his amazing dancing feet and struck a hatrick as his Pepsi side took apart Klondike Business Solutions 7-3.
Pulido was instrumental both on and off the pitch with his advice and encouragement to the other players, and this showed as the goals began flowing early with goals from captain Keith Maguire, Guliano Rayo with two, and Myles Dolphin.
KBS’s scorers were Eric Murphy, Adil Khalik and Brian Fiddler.
Marathon Man Brown leaves it late
Yukon Brewing’s Jim Brown is a man known for his exceptional stamina. This fitness led to him scoring the equalizing goal with only a minute left on the clock, as they tied up the game with Tony’s Pizza 3-3 in the early game.
It could have been so different if Phil Jackson’s curling freekick in the last second of the game had gone in, however the superb Chase Gammel clawed the ball away to ensure a share of the points.
Early risers watched a highly competitive game, as Tony’s Pizza got away to a quick start with Andy Todd, Graham
White and Phil Jackson all scoring in the first half.
However skipper Jim Connell and Mark O’Brien both scored to set up the grandstand finish.
