In the first game of the morning in over 35’s soccer action, Greg Grady cleared out Yukon Info.com with a hat trick as his Driving Force team won 5-1.
Grady has been in top form all year and produced a display that some people will be talking about a possible MVP nomination.
Putting last week’s disappointing result behind them, they ripped into Yukon Info, with Grady, Mark Chandler and Hector Lang all scoring.
Poor Yukon Info.com doesn’t know where their first point will come from, although Wil Chetcuti picked up his fourth goal of the campaign. Skipper Danny Macdonald valitantly tried to ignite the team, but bereft of his main defenders, they were sitting ducks for the marksmen of Driving Force, who had a lot of time on the ball.
Yukon Info sit at the foot of the league with no points and a lot of headaches.
Strachan Injury curtails
Air North’s fun
David Strachan was playing an integral role in the Air North Rangers game with Pepsi, but fell heavily and needed medical assistance, leading to the game being abandoned with Air North taking the win as they were 3-0 up with less than half the game to go.
This may have been a blessing for Pepsi, as the Rangers usually play their best soccer in the second half.
Air North’s goals came through Marcelo Gortari (two) and ageless legend Jurgen Korn.
The win takes ANR to the top of the table on goal difference, with every other team looking to emulate the skill, speed and cohesiveness that Captain Fantasic Iain Breckenridge has installed into his team.
Sebek sends Brewing to their first defeat
Unbeaten Yukon Brewing tasted the bitter pill of defeat for the first time this season as Klondike Business Solutions managed to hold on for a 5-4 victory.
Instrumental to this success was Mark Sebek who had an outstanding game at both ends of the pitch. There aren’t many quicker than him on the pitch, and he is able to cover a huge amount of ground throughout the game. His goal, the team’s fourth, was a marvellous spin and shot that caught the Brewing defence flat footed.
John Macphail scored his first of the season with a blistering shot from close to the halfway line, talisman Matthius Hartman got two goals and set the other up for Andy Todd leaving KBS with a healthy advantage.
However it seems that no lead is sacred anymore, and Yukon Brewing found another gear, closing the gap to within one goal.
But KBS had learnt from previous games, and were able to close this game out for a well deserved three points.
Scorers for the Brew were Miles Hume two, Justin Carre and Eric Murphy.
