Adult soccer returns

After a few crazy weeks of wacky winter weather, the Coast adult soccer leagues finally got a chance to play last week.

In the women's league, it was Campbell versus Campbell, as Ken Campbell's Source lost 5-1 to Christine Campbell's Blazers.

Jackie Ostrosky scored a pair, while Christine Hansen and Ashley Taylor added singles.

Blazers then segued their victory celebration into Campbell's birthday celebration, though the way she bounded down the wing like a spring doe, her cake surely could not have contained more than 38 candles.

More games, more wins for Ya Yas last week, with a 2-0 victory over Blazers on goals by Kari Dixon and Eliza Johnson, and then a 4-0 win over Pender with another pair from Dixon, and two more from Angela Muir.

In men's league action, the Sechelt Chiefs' usual suspects stepped up to score in their 6-1 win over Sitas, with two precision strikes from Scotty Johnson, nicely placed singles from Kellen Feschuck and Duane Craigan and a couple of scrappy goal mouth scrambles from John Jackson.

The Halfmoon Bay juggernaut coughed and sputtered at Connor Park in a 6-1 loss to the Xenichen Wolves.

Francis Dixon wheeled through the midfield to place a pair, with singles coming from 2014 draft picks Anthony Dixon and Shaun Louie, a boomer from Rick Timothy and another from Kevin August, who just keeps kicking, even as he approaches the midpoint in his fifth decade.

This week's player profile is Bananas's Rod Kammerle, who joined this reporter for a fireside chat. Kammerle cites his soccer influences as the latter day George Best and Maradonna, because "they knew how to have a good time," but couldn't explain how he missed an open net this week against Ridgepoint. Bananas scorers' in the 6-2 win were Keith 'Sticks' Clegg, Sean Brick, and Rich Massullo all scoring a pair.
