White demolishes KBS

Graham White had a memorable morning in over 35’s soccer action, as he led his team, Yukon Info.com, to a comfortable 8-2 win over Klondike Business Solutions on Saturday.

White was in majestic form as his side swept aside the feeble effort from the boys in blue, he scored a hat trick and also bossed the defence in a complete all round performance.

The pain Yukon Info inflicted on KBS was never ending, as all mistakes were punished with a goal. Along with White, Oscar Rodriguez 2, dainty Jim Brown, George Maratos and an own goal all scored past Cory Adams in the KBS net.

KBS was going into the game on a three game winning streak but were dismantled by a hungry Yukon Info team, who were far and away better all over the pitch, Justin Carre and David Rayo did manage to get a goal for KBS but they will have to play a lot better if they want to get anything from the season.

Macdonald’s double helps Pepsi win

In a feisty encounter Pepsi were able to outlast Driving Force and seal a 3-2 victory in the second encounter of the day. Danny Macdonald who has been missing for the last few weeks, returned to action with a couple of goals, giving Pepsi a clinical edge they have been missing previously. His Pepsi side are made up of a bunch of scrappers, like Gord Barker, Travis Schommer and Jason Steele and they needed them when the game got tight towards the end.

Driving Force welcomed back Ben Mercier who has missed the last couple of months with a back injury and he put in a great shift for his team scoring a goal and battling with the Pepsi midfield.

In the end both teams had given everything and really wanted the win. This is probably why tempers became frayed and referee Chris Donohoe started to hand out yellow cards like a belated Santa Claus.

Other goals were scored by Adil Khalik for Pepsi and Myles Dolphin for Driving Force.
