There are many words that could describe Westmark’s performance on Saturday in the over 35’s soccer league against Yukon Info.com, sublime, awe-inspiring, transcendent are but a few, however, these words only go some of the way to cover the total performance that they put in.

Sporting their new grey shirts, Westmark looked and played like an outfit whose confidence oozes out of every pore.

The magnificent Justin Carre picked up another 5 goals, and looks a good bet for the Golden Boot award he covets, while there were 2 goals for Graham White and one for deadly Doug Hitch leaving the final scoreline 8-0.

Yukon Info.com were missing a couple of players, but the way they folded against the grey wave will be very concerning for skipper Danny Macdonald, as they had no answers to the precision play of Westmark. In the end Westmark were passing the ball around as if this were an exhibition game, and perhaps it was?

Goal Fest goes Pepsi’s way

Pepsi opened up the pipes as they put 13 past Klondike Business Solutions in the second game of the day. It was a dominate performance from them, as it seems every time they had the ball it ended up in the back of the KBS net.

Pepsi were led by triple hat tricks of great scoring performances, the first was Jurgen Korn who is a formidable opponent at the best of times , the second was wily old fox in the box Rob Florkiewicz, and the third was an exemplary composed treble from Fabian Glyka, added to a brace each for Guliano Rayo, and Gord Barker.

On another day if you score 8 goals you would expect to win, but KBS were never really in the game, and were thankful for sub Danny Macdonald who hit five goals for them. Andy Todd, Shawn Fearon and William Nderba got the other goals for them. If you were watching this game, you got value for money as a goal was scored on average every 2 and half minutes.

Brewing’s comeback ties the game

Yukon Brewing are a tough team to beat, they have got a result against all the other teams in the league and they just don’t know when they are beaten. With their pillars of strength in defense well known, they were able to call on the skills of George Maratos in goal and were able to keep the score down with a combination of good luck and committed play.

Driving Force have a plethora of great players in their team, with no visible weakness, as Captain Fantastic Ben Mercier, Eric Murphy, Marcello Gortari and Miles Hume all scored a goal to put the team on the front foot. However, Mark Sebek grabbed a goal and is a very industrious player in attack and defense which allowed other players time and space to put pressure on the Driving Force goal, with Andy Todd 2 and inspirational leader Mark O Brien getting one, the game ended in probably a fair result of 4-4.
