In the women’s league it was another week and another win for Ya Yas, as the Muir mom and daughter combo of Angela and Kyla put four goals away, with a single from Kari Dixon in their 5-1 rout of Source.
Last Wednesday saw another Ya Yas victory over a short-staffed Blazers squad with more goals from Muir, Dixon, and another from an energized Miranda Joe, who looked like she’d polished off a McCafe at halftime.
Blazers’ strike came from Jacquie Ostrosky on a cross from Christine Campbell, who looked like they have been doing this for 17 years — because they have.
In men’s league play, the Sechelt Chiefs edged Halfmoon Bay 4-3, with goals from the dynamic striking duo of Kellen Feschuck and Scotty Johnson, Keith Johnson pushing up to score from defence because he could and lastly from fan favourite John Jackson who, as he gets older, has exchanged his signature knee-slide goal celebrations for simple fist pumping and chest pounding.
At Hackett Park, it was a closely fought 2-0 victory for Xenichen Wolves over the Pender Bananas.
Once upon a time, back in 1999, Eddie Paul ripped many nets for the Wolves. Then the virtue of fatherhood and the vice of golf took him away from the game for 15 years. Now, with weather too cold for polo shirts, white gloves and knicker pants, he’s back to the Eddie of old, hammering balls into nets, instead of putting them into cups.
Bananas’ Rich Massullo looked to tie it up, stepping to the spot like a Broncos placekicker, but unfortunately Wolves keeper intercepted it like a Seahawks receiver. Junior Dixon then provided the Wolves clincher.
Sita’s stuttered in a 4-0 loss to CPU, with goals from forwards Kurt Vernon and Kenny “the Cannon” Campbell, back liner Martin Blackwell, and Barry
“the Badger’’ Krangle scavenging a scrapping rebound for number four.
