Another Sunday and another win for Ya Yas.
Their five goals against Source came from Raini Aleck, Eliza Johnson and Angela Muir with the hat trick, putting her out of reach in the scoring race with striker husband Dan, while Kara McDonnell scored both goals for Source.
At the risk of putting a bullseye on their back, Ya Yas are undefeated in women’s soccer league play.
Fusion came out swinging against Blazers with a goal, but then stopped swinging as Blazers put five in the net, with singles from Astrid Bradbury, Jackie Ostrosky again (three weeks in a row) and three from Dawn Clancy, who must have access to a hyperbaric chamber as she was returning from a broken leg, which occurred a mere two months ago.
The Banana Peppers were a bit less peppy this weekend in their 4-1 loss to Sitas, with their goal coming from Katie Edwardson and Sitas’ goals from Shelbi McDonnell, Corinna Julius, Olivia Cantarutti and Katie Rothenbush.
Sitas were then edged 3-2 by Mayhem, with goals from Ellen Thomas and McDonnell. In the final 15, Sitas mauled Mayhem like tomato sauce on pizza dough, but the tying goal wouldn’t come.
In men’s league action, Sitas went down 3-0 to Mike Husband’s Ridgepoint Bruins, also known as ‘Cookie and Co.’ with the Bruins posting a couple of top corner snipes from Brian Thompson and Bobby Burrowes, while Husband stuffed the goal mouth clutter into the can for the third.
At 2-0 a converted Sitas’ penalty shot would have meant game on, but Ryan ‘Biggie Steves’ Stevens was there to shake it off and ensure the victory.
Wolves went on the attack against Halfmoon Bay and their 4-1 win reminded an uppity Half-moon Bay of their place in the standings. Goals came from Dan Muir, Rick Timothy and Trent Dixon, and Halfmoon Bay’s Colin Bradley, while stand up defence from Leon ‘Lion of Sliammon’ Timothy had Halfmoon Bay checking the rule book to see if players needed local addresses.
Sechelt Chiefs got the better of first place rivals CPU in their 3-1 win, with goals from ‘Flyin’ Ryan Paul, Marty ‘Grandpa’ August and Toby Baptiste, with Roman Horat scoring for CPU.
