Yukon Brewing secured the big double – the league and playoff titles – in old-timer soccer action this weekend, with a 7-4 win over Klondike Business Solutions.
A huge crowd packed into the Canada Games Centre, and witnessed a feast of soccer laid out by the two teams.
The Brew scored two early goals but they were cancelled out by two own goals from Jurgen Korn. Goals were traded back and forth and every 50/50 tackle was contested with relish.
The game was not for the faint- hearted and when KBS’s hero, MVP and talisman Danny Macdonald was in the treatment room from a huge challenge from fair play recipient Rob Florkiewicz, the Brew were finally able to stamp their authority on the game
The other Irishman, Mark O’Brien, picked up two, as did Rich Potter and Korn made amends for his earlier misdemeanors with a couple himself. Skipper Andy Todd added the other goal.
KBS played with huge heart and never gave up as injuries took their toll, with Macdonald and Kurt Bringsli getting their goals.
The bronze medal match saw Pepsi overcome Quest Computers 3-2. Returning legend Simon Pulido, Chris Stacey and Rigamortis Robinson got the goals for Pepsi with Leonard Linklater scoring for Quest on top of an own goal by the club.
