Cometh the hour, cometh the man

Larry White, Klondike Business Solutions star player, has been putting in incredible performances all season without getting the reward. But up against the top of the league Tony’s Pizza, he scored the winning goal with seconds left on the clock to end a fine game of soccer 6-5 between two committed teams.

The game ebbed and flowed, with first KBS in the lead, then Tony’s taking a 5-3 advantage into the last six minutes.

The pizza boys were indebted again to Eric Murphy who scored another hat trick and Mamadou Togola with two goals.

However KBS had not given up, and with Dave Black (two goals) back in the ranks, KBS had a player who could finish, setting up a grandstand finish to the game. With the final whistle is sight, White smashed the ball past a surprised George Maratos who had been epic up until that point.

Andy Todd scored the other goals for KBS.

Yukon Brewing racks up double figures

In the early over 35’s soccer game, Yukon Brewing had an easy day at the office against a valiant Pepsi side running out 13-1 victors.

Pepsi, shorn of its best players, was left at the mercy of a clinical Brew side.

Guiliano Rayo picked up six goals for Yukon Brewing with David Rayo (2), Jeff Ford (2), Jim Connell (2) and one from Mark O Brien filling out the scoresheet,with only a Jurgen Korn score for Pepsi in reply.

The win for the Brew closes the gap between Yukon Brewing and Tony’s Pizza to two points, with Eric Murphy leading the race to the Golden Boot with 31 goals followed by Guiliano Rayo (24) and Mamadou Togola (21).

The over 35 soccer report is prepared by Andy Todd.

The way Andy Todd writes for soccer, I feel as if I am right there at the game myself! Thank you Mr. Todd for expressing a passion for a game that is truly inspiring!
