Rayo too good for the Brew

Not many players in the Whitehorse Rapids over 35 soccer league are as constantly as good as Guliano Rayo.

Not many players in the Whitehorse Rapids over 35 soccer league are as constantly as good as Guliano Rayo.

Year in and year out Rayo’s skill and goal-poaching ability makes every team he plays for a good bet for the league title.

Saturday was no different as Rayo hit four goals as he led Pepsi to a 9-4 win over Yukon Brewing. Rayo and Pepsi, unlike his beloved Real Madrid, moved to the top of the league with four wins and two losses while Yukon Brewing are rooted to the bottom of the table without a win.

Brewing did compete well in the first half, but fell apart in the second as Pepsi showed their class running up the goals with Krisztian Goncze, Myles Dolphin, Rob Florkiewicz, Travis Schommer and an own goal for Pepsi.

Dale Cheeseman, Gord Barker, Liz Bradley and Rich Potter got consolations for the Brew.

KBS wins action-packed match

In the late match, fans were treated to a classic encounter between Klondike Business Solutions and Yukon Info.com.

The game was played at breakneck pace, with both teams battling for supremacy which ebbed and flowed with the lead changing hands a number of times.

Yukon Info got an early lead, but this was quickly cancelled out by a couple of lucky goals by KBS, the first a miss hit shot that travelled through the keeper, the second off a huge deflection before it hit the back of the net.

KBS was indebted to Keith Welch for his speed at the back and to Eric Murphy for his presence up front. The game finished in a 4-3 win for KBS, with everyone involved gasping for a breath at the end.

Scorers for KBS were Eric Murphy with two, Keith Welch and David Rayo. Jan Aalt van den Hoorn and Shawn Fearon scored for Yukon Info.

There will be no games this Saturday for Remembrance Day and teams will be back in action Nov. 18 with Yukon Info.com taking on Yukon Brew and a battle of the top two squads seeing Pepsi taking on Tony’s Pizza who has not lost a game yet this season. They are sitting at three wins with two draws and coming off a bye week.
