Kelowna United soccer teams earned more wins than losses last weekend. Here’s a look at the results from soccer matches last weekend.

•U-13 Girls

The Kelowna team came out strong against Shuswap’s U-13 team but despite some strong passing and great shots on net KU was unable to score in the first half. Angelia Ostrom opened the scoring in the second half and KU poured on the offense from there with other goals coming from Erin Thomas, Kiera Baldwin and Ostrom with her second of the game in a 4-0 win.

In their second game of the weekend, Kelowna’s U-13 girls earned another 4-0 shutout win, this time over Kamloops.  Paige Krivoshein, Chanel Campbell, Kiera Baldwin and Courtney Peissard scored for Kelowna.

•U-15 Girls

Kelowna and Vernon ran to a 1-1 tie in U-15 action. After Vernon opened the scoring in the second half on a penalty kick, the KU team pushed for the equalizer and with 10 minutes to go Kelsey Slattery was in front of the net to convert a well placed cross to tie the game.

•U-16 Girls

Following a tough loss to Penticton last week, the KU U-16 girls bounced back with a strong effort against Shuswap, earning a 4-1 win. Kelowna controlled the play from the start of the first half with excellent ball control and strong defensive play from Jill Robertson, Megan Hendricks and Sierra Sanchez. Kelowna scored early as Kenzie Sharko directed a nicely placed corner kick by Taylor Cristofoli into the net. Casey Loudoun and Taylor Cristofoli also scored for KU.

Kelowna United’s U-13 boys scored a narrow 2-1 win over the Shuswap Selects U-13 team in the first of two games for the U-13 boys.

Kelowna pounded Kamloops 5-0 on Sunday as Beauchemin scored a hat trick to lead the offense. Connor Sandrin and Piche also scored. A fantastic save by keeper Liam Gallagher on a penalty kick and a save by defender Evan Callahan kept the sheet clean for Kelowna.
