Great action heats up the pitch

Adult soccer

In the men’s adult soccer league the Bulldogs’ week is getting to be the most fun fixture on the roster.

Last Sunday a few extras joined the match from the sideline, while ref Paul Kusnir put away his whistle and played with the Bulldogs, leaving inquiring minds to wonder, “Did he still get paid?”

Pender’s Michele Moce-lin reminded teammates why he never plays in net, as he was peppered for three in not too many minutes.

At Hackett Park, CPU exploited a nine-man Ridgepoint side for two goals by sideline speedster Simon Hocking and Romaine Taylor, followed by two more from Ken Campbell and Fumi Takahashi after latecomers arrived.

Ridgepoints’ Eoin Walker turned up for the Reds between childcare and a quick boarding job, to bang one in, then disappeared at the half.

In the second meeting for the battle of the Sechelt Indian Band teams, it was again a tie in what is evolving into a cross-town intergenerational rivalry of the likes of a Manchester or Glasgow derby. Sechelt Chiefs or Xenichen Wolves souvenir jerseys should soon be available at the Tsain Ko Village gift shop. Wolves snipes both came from Dan Muir, while the Chiefs’ net ripper at large was ‘Downtown’ Scotty Johnson.

Women’s league

Just because their match took place up in the wilds of Pender didn’t keep the B-Peps out of the reach of the long arm of Ashley Taylor laying down the law, who put away two, with singles from Christine Campbell and Christine Hansen. 

However, goals, unlike apples, don’t grow on trees, and the tree shakers who set up Blazers’ celebrity strikers were Melissa Di Pietro and Dani Thompson.

Ya Yas under-womaned squad went down 6-2 to Sitas, with a pair from Kari Dixon. Like Alex Burrows, Sitas’ fleet-footed forward Kendra Graham continues to hit posts and make passes, though the swish of the mesh continues to elude her.
