Danny Macdonald’s side were able to get a result against Driving Force in the first encounter of the morning. In a game that meant a lot to the final placings, Yukoninfo.com were able to produce an all-round excellent display, as they kept Driving Force at bay in a wonderful 2-2 tie. 

The game felt like the playoffs came early as every possession was keenly contested as both teams knew a win would give them an easier path in the play-offs. 

Graham White had an excellent game, and nobody in the league can contain his pace when he is at full tilt. White got a goal, as did sub Ash Jordan, that Yukoninfo.com thought would be enough. But Driving Force have Mark Chandler who never knows when he is beaten. Chandler puts in a wholehearted display everytime he pulls on the white of Driving Force, he scored and was always the man the opposition have to watch.

Teen-band lookalike Phil Jackson got the other Force goal, as the game became very nervous in the final few minutes with Info holding on to pick up the bronze medal in the league. 

Korn starts the party early  

Air North celebrated winning the league with an emphatic win over Pepsi in over 35’s soccer action.

Even though skipper Iain Breckenridge couldn’t play due to a freak cooking accident, he was there to coach his side the final steps of the way.

He didn’t need to though as Jurgen Korn turned in a performance that shows the class of the man. Playing in defence, Korn scored no less than four goals as he was marauding all over the Fieldhouse like he owned the place.

Pepsi had no real answer to him and MVP nominee Ciaran Connolly who picked up three goals. Pepsi’s cause wasn’t helped by the fact that they couldn’t keep players fit for long enough to finish the match. It seemed that anybody walking past would be able to get a game. Pepsi skipper Mark O Brien manfully stuck to the task but it was all one way traffic in the end, with the game ending 10-4.

Other scorers for Air North were Marcello Gortari, Huy Nguyen and Andy Todd, while JP Ladroue, Mark O Brien, Jim Brown and part time keeper James McCullough all got a goal for Pepsi. 

Hartmann finishes of
Yukon Brewing

Matthias Hartmann capped an excellent season with another three goals, that helped win the Golden Boot with a record number of goals. His game has no faults, and he brings a lot a female fans to the viewing gallery with Hugh Jackman good looks.

Klondike Business Solutions needed a good game to get some momentum going into the playoffs and they got that with some good performances all over the pitch.

Gord Barker and John MacPhail were both dominate in the defence of George Maratos’s goal, but still needed Maratos to pull off some good saves.

Maratos will miss the playoffs because he is going to Dawson on a one man comedy show, playing at the closed golf course in front of his many adoring fans.

Yukon Brewing were missing a few players and it messed with there balance as they couldn’t keep a sustained attack going for too long.

In the end, KBS ran out an easy 6-3 victors and would be hoping that everyone stays fit for the final.

Charles McLeod, Andy Todd and Franklin Fru scored the other goals for KBS while Justin Carre, Huy Nguyen and Eric Murphy grabbed the goals for Yukon Brewing.
