KBS couldn’t see the Wood for the trees

Scott Wood, a veteran of many over-35 seasons, has never scored a better goal than the one he buried on Saturday morning.

Wood, better known as a tough tackling defender, got the first of many well-taken goals for Tony’s Pizza, as they beat a hardworking Klondike Business Solutions team 9-6.

The Pizza boys were indebted to Keith Maguire, who was reading the game like a book, and Mamadou Togola who banged in four goals.

KBS didn’t help their cause by going down 5-0 in the first 15 minutes, but they eventually gained some rhythm closing within a goal; however as they got tired Tony’s showed their class to secure a deserved win. Other scorers for Tony’s were Eric Murphy, Adil Khalik, and two for Gord Barker.

Andy Todd (3), Jim Brown (2), and Arnold Hedstrom got the goals for KBS.

Brew hammer Pepsi

In an 11-2 goal-fest at the Canada Games Centre, Yukon Brewing sowed up the league title with a very impressive display.

The Brew’s success has been built on a strong defence, and great teamwork. This was evident in their performance.

Pat Shaw got three, as did David Rayo. Guiliano Rayo, Liz Bradley, Mark O Brien, Chris Stacey and Jeff Ford all got a goal each.

Pepsi were overran but scored two goals through Jürgen Korn and Charles Mcleod. The Brew are now looking forward to winning the double, if they can clinch the playoffs in a couple of weeks time.

The over 35 soccer report is prepared by Andy Todd.
