Macdonald and Khalik lead Pepsi’s great escape

If you want drama, intrigue and a great finale, the Canada Games Centre is the place to be on a Saturday morning.

If you want drama, intrigue and a great finale, the Canada Games Centre is the place to be on a Saturday morning.

Driving force was cruising in third gear leading Pepsi 5-2 with only 10 minutes left on the clock in over 35’s soccer action. They had got there through goals from Ciaran Connely, Myles Dolphin, Nathan Cross, Oscar Rodriguez and a comedy own goal by Gord Barker.

Then skipper Danny Macdonald, still bristling from the criticism his team has received, grabbed the bull by the horns, and charged forward shooting and spraying passes all over the pitch. He was helped by Adil Khalik (2 goals) who was in top form, a constant thorn in the Driving Force side, and Juergen Korn (1 goal).

Dale Cheeseman’s side looked forlorn, and had no answer to the tsunami of attacks that Pepsi was producing. When Macdonald scored his hat-trick goal the amassed crowd couldn’t believe what they were seeing, and many people will be asking where they were when Pepsi came back from an impossible position.

Yukon Info put KBS to the sword.

At the end of this game, the neutral observer was hoping for Klondike Business Solutions to be put out of their misery, such was the Yukon Info.com dominance.

Skipper George Maratos is an irresistible force leading the line for Yukon Info, his coolness in front of goal has made him a dark horse for the golden boot title. He added two more goals to his tally and was part of everything good that the Orangeman did. Maratos was aided and abetted by slim Jim Brown, who has lost 14 pounds in a recent health kick. Brown was able to glide past players with his new found speed and picked up another goal for his team.

KBS had no answers to the questions Yukon Info asked as an own goal and a JP Ladroue special rounded out their scoring. Justin Carre’s penalty was the only bright spot as KBS now find themselves rooted to the bottom of the league and will need a miracle to revive their season.
