Ash Jordan scored a record eight goals, as he helped his bottom placed team, Klondike Business Solutions, beat league winners Westmark 15-3 in over 35’s soccer action.
Jordan was too quick, too clever, and too good for this Westmark team, it seemed everytime he had a half chance, he put the ball in the back of the net. Jordan was linking up well with Franklin Fru (three goals) and together they dominated the midfield, and overran a beleaguered grey team.
Westmark defender Jason ‘The Flash’ Steele got his nickname not from his exceptional speed, but from his time as a Chippendale, finished the game exhausted and shell-shocked.
Westmark were missing some influential players but on this evidence, it would be hard to say if it would have made any difference.
The other scorers for KBS were Jim Brown two goals, and one apiece for Andy Todd and Bruno Bourdache, while Deadly Doug Hitch, Pat Shaw and James Wigmore scored for Westmark.
Dolphin and Gortari take the fizz out of Pepsi
Driving Force needed a big win to put pressure on Yukon Info in the race for second, and receive a first round bye in the playoffs, they got it with the help of Myles Dolphin and Marcelo Gortari who both scored four goals, as they ran out comfortable winners 12-4. Dolphin provided the deft touches, stroking the ball around like a pool player, meanwhile Gortari was the hammer, driving himself forward before unleashing unstoppable shots. Mile Hume was also very much part of the positive play helping himself to two goals. Andy Todd and Eric Murphy also picked up a goal each for Driving Force.
Spare a thought for Jason Steele who was subbing for Pepsi, he had earlier watched 15 goals scored in his net, then had another 12 scored past him while he was defending for Pepsi making it an eyewatering 27 goals on his shift.
David Ray, Fabian Glyka and JP Ladroue two got the Pepsi goals.
Yukon Info fall at the final hurdle
Yukon Info.com needed to beat Yukon Brewing by a clear four goals to claim second place in the league, but missed the chance mainly because of George Maratos in the Brew net. Maratos was inspired, just like his stand-up comedy performances as he made great save after great save to crush the hopes and dreams of Yukon Info.
As the Orangemen pushed forward to score the goals they needed, they were often left exposed to the Yukon Brewing forwards, in particular Mark Sebek (two goals) and Michael Zuccarini (one goal). This led to a very entertaining game with both sides trying to score goals, Danny Macdonald did get two goals for Yukon Info but was strangely wayward in his other attempts, JP Ladroue two and Adil Khalik were their other scorers. When the game finished 5-5 Yukon Info were at a loss at how Maratos played so well. Marcello Gortari got the other Brewing goal.
Congratulations go out to Westmark on winning the league and to Justin Carre for picking up the Golden Boot award.
