Pepsi welcomes New Year with a cheer

In over 35’s soccer action,

In over 35’s soccer action, Pepsi put in the kind of performance that will scare the rest of the league, although the title might be out of their reach, but come the playoffs they will be big contenders.

Charlie Hoeller in the Pepsi net was largely untroubled, because the boys in front of him were in top form as they totally outplayed Yukon Brewing to win 5-0.

Guliano Rayo, David Rayo, Fabian Glyka, Rob Florkiewicz and skipper Keith Maguire all got a goal apiece showing how well they play together as a team. They also have the mighty Juergen Korn in defence, who worked himself to exhaustion, so much so he needed a rest on the floor as the game was going on around him.

Yukon Brewing need to find a way to score goals and quickly, because they looked very toothless in front of the goal this week and there is a long way to go in the season.

Westmark wins the
game of the day

In a fantastic game between the top two teams, Westmark and Driving Force fought it out in a classic game. The lead changed hands a number of occasions as opposing star players Marcelo Gortaro and Carre fought it out to gain superiority for their respective teams. Justin Carre just about won the battle as he scored another three goals to sew up the golden boot this year, but Gortari was in great form, driving his team forward and also scored his trademark thunderbolt goal.

The game was close and a winner couldn’t be confidently called at any stage of the match, as both teams had some luck with deflected shots but both teams earned that lick with some great play and hard work. When the final whistle blew, Westmark had won 4-3, but a draw would possibly been a fairer result. Graham White got the other goal for Westmark, while Mark Sebek two got the other Driving Force goals.

Too much Turkey
slows down KBS

In a game that was played at a snail’s pace, Yukon Info.com took their chances, as they beat Klondike Business Solutions 3-1 in the late game.

Both keepers in this game were in magnificent form, as Yukon Info’s Stephen Doyle and KBS’s Thomas Rexinger pulled off a string of great saves to keep the score down, however the KBS strikers will be the more disappointed as they missed a host of great chances.

Each player looked like they had put on 10lbs over the Christmas break as each passage of play was a slow and tedious affair, as many people in the crowd aged considerably watching the game.

The bright spots in the game were the goals, as Franklin Fru got the KBS goal, for Yukon Info former Williams Lake MVP Derek Funk opened his account with a good goal, as did Adil Khalik and JP Ladroue.

Hopefully next week’s game will be played at a higher tempo.
