Ya Yas kept true to their New Year's resolution to win every game with a 2-1 win over Sita's as women's soccer league action resumed after its winter break.

Louise Delaney scored a pair for Ya Yas while for Sita's Koree Rogers' cross was expertly put away by Kendra Graham, the star pupil of renowned local coach Rich Getzkow.

In the Banana Peppers and Blazers match, the eager youngsters from Pender came out scoring, with a goal-scoring debut from returning player Amy Robinson.

Blazers sucked up the setback, then blew past the B-peps for four in a row, from Dani Thompson, Dawn Clancy, Christine Hansen and Meaghan Spithoff. Meanwhile, Astrid Bradbury, who must buy laundry detergent in bulk, started the match smelling like a rose, but finished covered in mud and muck.

In men's league action, Sita's FC may have indulged in a bit too much turkey over the holidays, as their match with Wolves turned into a bit of a turkey shoot.

The Xenichen Wolves picked up a 6-2 win as usual suspects Dan Muir and Junior Dixon put away pairs, with singles from Rich Watson and ''Fast'' Eddie Paul.

With defender Corey August out of commission, the Wolves goal area has gone from a raging bullpen where forwards looked over their shoulder in terror to a kinder, gentler space, though Jed Wensvene and company still managed to keep things respectable, with Sita's strikers only notching a pair.

The merry men from Madeira Park made the long haul down to Hackett Park in Sechelt and brought home a point for their troubles in their tie with CPU.

Most games CPUs Barry ''The Badger'' Krangle can be found on the goal line, sniffing for scraps from Ken Campbell and Fumi Takahashi's rebounds. This week the hunter became the hunted, as the popular Pender principal was schooled in turn by these Pender parents as he tried to defend against the Bananas bunched in CPUs goal area. Bananas scoring came from Rick Massullo and Dave McKay, while Ken Campbell put away a pair for CPU.
